In the stores of Wells Museum is a large assemblage of prehistoric worked flint, recovered from fields at the head of Ebbor Gorge. This was collected by Ann Everton in the 1970's but details were never published. This paper describes the collection, which contains 1460 catalogued items and 11 kg of waste. Several activity phases are represented, ranging in date from the Mesolithic to the Bronze Age. It is suggested, however, that most of the flints may relate to a Beaker settlement of the late third millennium BC.
