Monument Number 10862

Hob Uid: 10862
Location :
Grid Ref : NY3900071000
Summary : A group of Bronze Age bronze spearheads are in the Sir Fergus Graham Collection at Tullie House Museum, Carlisle. They are reputedly from the area of the Roman fort at Netherby (NY 37 SE 2). There is no definite proof that they constituted a single hoard, although their grouping in the catalogue of the Graham collection and their similar patina and condition has been taken to suggest that they were.
More information : A hoard of Bronze Age spearheads is in the Sir Fergus
Graham Colln, in the Tullie House Museum, Carlisle. Reputedly from
the area of the Roman Fort at Netherby (NY 37 SE 2), like much of the
material given to the museum by Sir Fergus Graham. There is no
positive evidence that these implements form a hoard, but they are
grouped together in the catalogue of the collection and are all so
similar in patina and condition that such a conclusion seems
inescapable. (1)
