The area once had a marshy landscape and was a fertile landscape for communities to live on. The flint tools found here could be the earliest known tools discovered in England, making it an important find.

Other discoveries at the site include a 12m long fish trap and evidence of camp fires. A definite date has not been announced yet as dating still needs to be confirmed.
