Gatty Slip: Bronze spearhead, very much knocked about, labelled: \IN TAB... CHATH... 17..3\". [sketch] 4 1/2 in. long."Gatty slip presumes it came from Faussett collection, but this is not certain. If it is formally from the Faussett collection, the only small \spearhead\" found at Chartham Down is that described as a toy in Grave 39. The sketch here does not exactly match the drawing in the MS Diary and the Inventorium Sepulchrale of the Grave 39 spearhead. Also the dimensions are not exact
