In the spring of 1962 Mr. W. Turner, the owner of a gravel pit at Brigham, noticed the unusual occurrence of flint flakes in the top soil being removed to extend his pit. He drew the attention of Messrs. C. & E. Grantham to the site and kindly granted permission for an excavation. The greater part of the flint site had been removed by this time and only a very small portion remained for excavation. The top soil from the site had been dumped on the floor of the pit and it was possible to recover the flint assemblage from it. The arduous task of examining the dumped soil and the remaining portion of the site was carried out during 1962 and 1963 by Messrs. C. & E. Grantham assisted by Messrs. B. Brigham, T. Clarke, P. Edgar, C. Graham, M. R. Petch, and the late T. W. Wadsworth.
