Research notes: Pitt Rivers was in Ireland [serving in the Army] from 1862-66, this object may have been obtained during this period [Bowden, 1991: 60-4]. The logic of the green book entry would suggest that the correct fraction numbers for these three objects [1884.113.11 - 13] should be 170/ 171/ 172/ 8386 [AP Leverhulme project on founding collection 1995-1998]
