Site Event/Activity record EMO12650 - 1869: AE - Porlock Weir
An examination of the forest bed was made in Autumn 1869. Underneat a layer of undisturbed vegetable matter was flint and chert chippings and a very well-formed flake, embedded in the upper ferruginous portion of the angular detritus. The flint was thought to have been dropped on the surface rather than deposited by water. A search of the shingle produced a further water worn flint pebble, which may have been washed out of the angular detritus.
