I can say that all material comes from North Antrim and North Londonderry. This awl came from a field trip in North Antrim at a townland called Craignamaddy All photographs are taken in natural daylight with no editing Please note that my entire private collections and teaching collections were examined, recorded and evaluated by staff of the Ulster Museum, Belfast in the 1990s Condition: Excellent
