- Curator's comments
- Research by Stuart Needham suggests that the halberd may have been the blade found by an antiquarian called Bland, as reported in Tom Clare's Prehistoric Monuments of the Lake District (2007, 92-3) at c. NY 598 149. See British Museum object file for this find for more details.
