Below is a full list of Prehistoric items that I hold in my private collection, they include Neolithic Pottery and Flint / Stone tools from all three Stone Age periods.
All of the items listed below were acquired during field walking trips, along an important alignment path that begins in Chelmsford, Essex at the Springfield Neolithic / Bronze Age Cursus.
The site is on a direct Northern path (true north), and ends in Norfolk at Seahenge.
Seahenge, which is also known as Holme I, was a prehistoric monument located in the village of Holme-next-the-Sea, near Old Hunstanton in the English county of Norfolk. A timber circle with an upturned tree root in the centre, Seahenge was apparently built in the 21st century BC, during the early Bronze Age in Britain. Contemporary theory is that it was used for ritual purposes, Possibly burials.
These field walking finds were found eight miles away from Chelmsford, along this alignment / pathway and may have been one of many encampment’s along this route, which our prehistoric ancestors walked thousands of years ago on-route to Seahenge.
Interestingly Seahenge is also on a Midsummer / Midwinter alignment (sunrise/sunset) with the famous Stonehenge site.
They were all found in the River Ter Valley on the northern route between Chelmsford and Seahenge.
These finds may suggest that this pathway was in use for hundreds of thousands of years and the same migrating pathway handed down through countless generations. This historical site has also yielded Palaeolithic as well as Neolithic tools. The Palaeolithic tools probably pre-date the interglacial period and maybe as old 400,000 years and are probably Clactonian.
The Clactonian is the name given by archaeologists to an industry of European flint tool manufacture that dates to the early part of the interglacial period known as the Hoxnian, the Mindel-Riss or the Holstein stages (c. 400,000 years ago). Clactonian tools were made by Homo heidelbergensis.
Clactonian is named after 400,000-year-old finds made by Hazzledine Warren in a palaeochannel at Clacton-on-Sea in the English county of Essex in 1911.
Some of these finds can be viewed on my youtube channel, ‘Stephen and Yhana’ including a Neolithic Stone Hammer that was found in 2021.
