Clarence Bicknell: the rock he sent to the British Museum

Written by Marcus Bicknell on .

301 British Museum AN00790984 001 lIn 1897 Clarence Bicknell sent by mail to the British Museum in London an entire detached rock with a horned figured on it. Read Valerie Lester's account in MARVEL on page 121. I mention it now because the British Museum has digitised much of its archive. Their report to the UK Government each year list new acquisitions. Here is the record of Clarence's contribution:

1897
ACCOUNTS, ETC., OF THE BRITISH MUSEUM.

The foreign illustrations include : —

A slab of rock with picked design representing the head of
an ox, probably of the Bronze age, from the north side of the
val Fontanalba, near Bordighera ; presented by Clarence
Bicknell, Esq.

RETURN to an Order of the Honourable The House of Commons,
