Notes: When Woolley excavated the beads, he strung them according to how they were in the ground. Legrain later strung them as necklaces and gave them B numbers. Maude restrung them back into strings in 1983 resulting in the date number. Records recording these changes do not exist at this point. U and B numbers match based on description. B and date are just guesses
