(Centred NB 009 310) Iron Age "wheelhouse" pottery, and part of a long-handled bone comb were found at the spots indicated on 6" plan by Mr Carson (M Carson, Red House, Plealey, Pontesford, nr Shrewsbury, Salop), who states that they mostly came from "floors" (thin midden levels?) weathering out of sand dunes. It is hoped to obtain the finds for the NMAS, but he may wish to have them returned to him.
Fragment of a bronze 'tortoise' brooch found 1975. In NMAS.
Information contained in letter and plan from J Close-Brooks (NMAS) to OS 18 November 1974.

In RMS (IL 749 - brooch; HR 1354 - comb, HR 1356-1365-pottery).
