Beaker fragments from River Wissey between Stoke Ferry and Northwold at south end of Herringay Drove.
So R.R. Clarke (NCM)'s (S1), but on (S2) he marks site as some way west of this drove, as at grid references above. Note on (S2) by R.R. Clarke (NCM) also adds 'and other Bronze Age wares'.
These sherds were donated to the Cambridge University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. The collection includes a Collared Urn sherd that is listed in (S4) and described in the museum's records as a fragment of an "overhanging rim urn" (1928.523).
'Collected by Lethbridge and Tebbutt?'
Added to (S1) by R.R. Clarke (NCM) at later date.
