Sartfield Brooghs

Period: Mesolithic - Neolithic

Description: Prehistoric flint scatter.

A small quantity of worked prehistoric flint was recovered from Sartfield, Jurby by CH Cowley, from the 'Brooghs'.

It is possible that Cowley was drawn to this locality by the burial mound (PRN 0260), unaware that it is probably of medieval origin. The grid reference is 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.
