Raby Beg

Period: Mesolithic - Neolithic

Description: Prehistoric flint scatter.

A small quantity of worked prehistoric flint was recovered from Raby Beg by CH Cowley, from the 'Top Fields'.

The description would appear to relate to fields neighbouring those colse to the top of the Barnell track, where Cowley had made other finds. In the absence of a more precise location, the grid reference provided relates to the farmstead for indicative purposes only.

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.
