valuable roman and grecian artefacts

Garinish Island GlengarriffThe Bryces used to collect old Roman and Greek antiquities. On Garinish Island you can find an ancient sarcophagus (in the Walled Garden), the noble temple came from Greece, a pot which is hundreds of years old containing a bonsai larch which is about 200 years of age, a lovely copy of the famous Mercury of the Medici in Florence and many, many astonishing details on the buildings.

Garinish Island GlengarriffBut why is there (at least) one of the artefacts thrown in the dirt (near the pier)?
