The beaker, copper dagger and two flint arrowheads were excavated from a bell barrow by the Revd A. B. Hutchings, and they are now in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.

Despite its age, this painting has a surrealist quality which has led Guest’s work to be compared with that of the twentieth-century landscape painter Paul Nash.
