Primary documentation: ‘[p.588] Dr. JOAN EVANS, from the property of the late SIR ARTHUR EVANS, Youlbury, Boars Hill, Oxford. [List of items follows]’; ‘[p.590] 7 original pencil sketches. Unmounted. Norway, Sweden, Finland’: Pitt Rivers Museum accession records (Donations X, 1937–1941), pp.588, 590.

Research notes: This drawing would appear not to have been made by Arthur Evans during his trip to Finland in the summer of 1873, since his route on that occasion (along the Swedish coast) did not take in northern Norway. It is not known when the drawing was made.
