Note. This is the same accession number as site NHER 16487.
Is there one axe, or two? It seems probable that there is only one, but it is uncertain which location is the more accurate. If the grid reference is taken from (S2) then it is more probable that NHER 16487 is more accurate.
F. Healy (NAU) & E. Rose (NAU) 1 June 1987.
