Archaeology[edit | edit source]

Some flint implements, bones and shells were found on the southern slope of this area during an archaeological survey by W. J. Lewis Abbott.[1] These were described as containing an abundance of the diminutive forms known as "pigmy implements" - finely chipped pieces between 1-5 centimetres in length and of a characteristic triangular, crescent or rhomboidal form.
