Did a complete inspection of this FBM in the 1970s. The owner of the house was a bit uptight with it being dug up and inspected, anyway my field assistant and myself did it. What was/is unusual about this FBM was that the two points, bolt and piece of flint, in the chamber were not keyed to bedrock but to the gravel bed
