Description: Prehistoric flint scatter.

A small quantity of worked prehistoric flint was recovered from land at Bellellis, near Peel by CH Cowley, described by him as the 'Third Field after Long Field'.

The exact findspot is not certain and the grid reference 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.
