A Trip to Grime's Graves, Thetford, Norfolk - 8th May 2016

On the way back from Outwell, we stop off at Grime's Graves - a name that refers to graves, as in en-grave-ings, and Grim, another name for Norse god Woden, or more literally The Dark One's Quarry - for a look around and a chance to visit the only neolithic flint mine open to the public.
