Rescued from the Sea


In this well produced book Clive Waddington provides a personal account of excavations at an important prehistoric site at Low Hauxley on the Northumberland coast prior to its destruction by coastal erosion. In an approachable style he narrates the course of the project, and the prominent involvement of local volunteers, as well as the remarkable evidence for Mesolithic life which they uncovered. Discoveries included over 15,000 flint tools and chips as well as the remains of what was interpreted as a hut and several pits indicating Mesolithic activity over a long period from c.7900-7200 BC. A further important discovery was an early Beaker period burial cairn.
