Encompassing The Waite Collection of Palaeolithic lithic surface finds from the county, retrieved in fieldwalking by the late Mr Ron Waite over many decades. These finds have been important in emphasising the surprising density of the Palaeolithic occupation of this region.

We also hold flint artefacts from the important late Upper Palaeolithic open-air camp at Launde and Middle Mesolithic finds from Asfordby.
