Notes about this historic site

1 ‘A Rough Stone Celt’ discovered on Kenilworth Common.
2 ‘Rude Celt of Millstone Grit’.
3 A gentlemans records finding, 60 years ago, a rough stone Celt (subsequently described as of Millstone Grit) on Kenilworth Common. His figure shows what is apparently one half of an implement, but he gives no idea of size, and the illustration is not good enough to say how far the stone was chipped and how far ground.
4 Thomas gives an inaccurate grid reference (SP3171) for this axe (10/c).
5 An old WMSMR card suggests that the axe is now in Coventry Museum, but I have been unable to check this.
