A small Bronze Age collared urn in Lewes Museum is provenanced to Harrow Hill. It was donated to the museum in 1953 by Dr HBA Ratcliffe Densham, but it is not known how he came by it. Nor is it clear exactly when and where it was found. Collyer's poorly-known excavations in circa 1896 are a possibility. RCHME survey of the Neolithic flint mines and later prehistoric enclosure in 1994 detected no positive evidence for antiquarian excavations among the flint mines, although this does not mean that none occurred.
