Description: Prehistoric flint scatter.

A small quantity of worked prehistoric flint was recovered from Lhergydhoo by CH Cowley, from the 'Upper Curragh'.

The description relates to a group of waterlogged fields which were ploughed for the first time in 40 years during WW1, centred around OS Field nos 1147, 1148 and 1149, at the centre of which lies the grid reference provided.

The antiquary Charles Harry Cowley was an avid collector of worked flint and coarse stone artefacts revealed by agricultural activity, mainly on farms located around Peel, and occasionally from further afield. He was active from 1900 until 1943. His entire collection of artefacts, together with a daybook cataloguing his discoveries, was later donated to Manx National Heritage.
