Two Paleolithic Hand Axes from Whitfield.
The exciting discovery of not one, but two paleolithic hand axes was made by the author during a preliminary field survey in the Whitfield area of the new Eastern Bypass. The area in which the axes were found (NGR TR 296 448) was re-examined intensively by the Dover Archaeological Group when the proposed route of the Bypass was finally decided and found to cross the field. No further flints were found in the same area however. The findspot is now only one metre away from the edge of the Bypass!
