The find consists of about 30 pieces of “grooved-ware” pottery that were excavated by archaeologists from a pit feature. Other finds include flint tools, made from material that originated from Yorkshire. According to the experts, the flint showed the tools had been used for stripping bark and skinning animals, amongst other tasks.
