Treasures from the past
I very often find little pieces of the past whilst digging in my garden . Last week after a heavy downpour of rain I spotted a little flint thumb scraper washed up in one of my vegetable beds . I am thrilled ! Nearby I had also found the other stone tool , although I think this one has been broken....you can see that the edge and sides have been polished . A trip to Truro museum is now on my calender . I will take all the bits that I have found this time and see if we can find out about our ancestors that lived here back in prehistory times . The Portable Antiquities Scheme is there to help with identifying your "finds" . I have just discovered their brilliant website ...with a great data base and gallery .
