EASTON DOWN

DESCRIPTION + /

Neolithic flint mining site with evidence for later Neolithic and early Bronze Age activity. The site was discovered by JFS Stone in 1929, and he undertook extensive excavations in the vicinity from 1930 to 1934, examining several other features in addition to the mines. The site was surveyed in 1979 by RCHME in advance of proposals to allow a battle run through the site. The site was reinvestigated and its excavation history thoroughly assessed by RCHME in 1995-6 as part of the Industry and Enclosure in the Neolithic Project. See the archive report for full details.
