Farmer and local historian

In 1911 a carved votive stone was discovered and dug up in Cottenham on land belonging to Arthur Bull. Known as the 'Cottenham Relief' the carving is from classical Greece (500 B.C.) and depicts a male youth and a horse. An antiquarian named Roger Gale lived in Cottenham in 1728, and this relief probably belonged to him. How it came to be lost or disposed of by him and then buried remains unknown.

Today 'the Cottenham Relief' is owned and on display in the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
