British Museum Copt Hill Artifacts


The Copt Hill material forms part of our study collection housed in our west London outstation and can be viewed by appointment. The Food Vessel Urn and the flint knife and scrapers are illustrated in our on-line database by drawings taken from the 1985 Greenwell catalogue. The detailed list and description appears in the catalogue. ‘Not preserved’ in an entry means that the object was not accessioned into the collections here and in all likelihood never came here.

Below is a link to the Imperial War Museum audio archives, it is an interview with William Chapman who was born at Easington Lane, it is both amusing and enlightening,
