Card/Transcription No.: 225230-1

225-230 Group of 11 sticks and bows in a bag.

1. Position Between outermost and second shrines: Standing on left (south) side of doors.

2. Dimensions of bag. L. somewhere about 250 (top torn) W. flat 23.5.

3.Description Consisted of a strip of cloth 51.2 in width, both edges torn. This probably was laid flat: sticks placed in centre: sides turned over them, & edges sewn together, one edge having a turn-over of 1.5. At bottom both edges were turned over and sewn together. Doubtful how near the top of bag the side edges were sewn together. Then at 13 from top, a strip of linen cord, .15 in diam. was twisted round about 5 or 6 times, & fastened by a clay sealing (jackal & nine foes?)
