* The Dubu and Steeple–houses of the Central District of British New GuineaJahrbuch für Prähistorische und Ethnographische Kunst,1927,1,177–92.

1 Published in the Abingdon Chronicle (Rolls Series, 1858) 1, 124, and in Birch, Cart. Sax. in, 68. Dr Grundy (Berks,BucksOxon Arch. Journ., i922,xxvn, 98, 99), puzzled by finding an ‘abbendune’ so far from the town of that name, attempts to emend the text, but he has missed the point. There is really no difficulty to be overcome.

2 Pinsgrove is not marked on the Ordnance Map; but Hearne refers to a ‘town’ of that name as having been situated ¼ of a mile SE of Chilswell, and he also speaks of Pinsgrove Coppice. Lib. Nig. Scacc, 1774,11, 565.

3 Ab. Chron. II, 272.

4 Ab. Chron. I, 3. This description would also suit the former site.

* We much regret that we were just too late to see Mr Guy Brunton's exhibition, and therefore cannot refer to it in this note. Reference is made to all three exhibitions in the current number of the British Museum Quarterly(vol.5,no. 2, pp.73–6).

One of the main results achieved last season was the determination of the course of the city walls. This and other features of the exhibition are described in the excellent guide prepared. (Antiquities of Ur, by C.L.Woolley). Mr Woolley’s full report is printed in Antiquary’s Journal, October 1930.
