Iron rich meteorite that fell between 5000-8000 years ago and has subsequently been highly weathered. Total weight of >300kg lay buried from 0.5-1m below the surface in an area of several square kilometers. Weathering was minimal where meteorite fragment was in clay, but extensive in water-soaked sands.
