    The Worked Stone Finds from Barrow T5

    Burrington Combe


    Trimmis, K & Mullan, G, 2019, ‘The Worked Stone Finds from Barrow T5: Burrington Combe’. Proceedings of the University of Bristol Spelaeological Society, vol 28., pp. 143-153


    Barrow T5 was originally excavated by the University of Bristol Speleological Society during the 1920s. This work was unsatisfactory and the site was reexcavated, this time carefully and completely by H. Taylor, between 1949 and 1957. No final report was reproduced. This paper gives the background to the work and gives details of the non-flint worked stone implements, almost all of Old Red Sandstone (Portishead Formation) recovered from the site. The finds include polishers and one broken mould which indicates metalworking at the site, or nearby, and two crude knives, one of sandstone and one of limestone.
