Donors' Book gives "Found in W B Fagg's room, from Igbo-Ugwu".Torn scrap of paper with object no.1 reads "Carpenter,District Officer at Isuoffia" etc - this matches provenance of 1956 Af.15 collection. Additionally, a location-index card exists in Benin Bronze Room numbered 1956 Af.15.6 -"miscellaneous pieces" but there is no such entry in the Register - it may be that the 1979 Af.18 collection = the intended no.6.
