Items from the Stone Age, including a distinctive arrowhead, have been unearthed during building work at Seaford Head’s sixth form site.
Contractors for Kier uncovered the archaeological ‘find’, which dates back 7,000 years, at the Old Annex building. The artefacts were found two weeks ago, during the excavations to the north side of the site, which includes hundreds of flint pieces which have been untouched by human hands since 5000BC.
A spokesperson for the school said, “The most visually exciting piece of all to be uncovered is an arrow head. The arrow head, measuring three centimetres in diameter, dates back to the Mesolithic period where stone tools were made from a variety of stone. For example, flint and chert were shaped (or chipped) for use as cutting tools and weapons.”
