Finds of flint implements in the Graveney area have been reported for some years now, but not all have been recorded.
Recently a Neolithic tranchet axe was found at the edge of a public footpath near the Seasalter Road, Graveney, NGR 05836216. The axe measures 135 millimetres by 30 millimetres and shows signs of extensive use. A number of struck flints have been found in the same area.
The axe is in the possession of the finder, group member Shaun Theobald of Murtons Farm Graveney, who would be pleased to hear of any finds made in the Graveney area and not previously recorded. The axe will be presented to the Faversham museum.
