A fragment of cast copper alloy socketed axe, dating to the Late Bronze Age c. 1000 - 800 BC.

Description: The fragment represents part of the socketed end of the axe and is unevenly shaped. Part of the rimmed collar for the socket remains. Just after the rim there is a side loop to help secure the axe to its handle, which remains intact. The fragment is dark to light green on the surfaces, its surface is also heavily worn suggesting while the breaks are moderately worn suggesting they occurred after deposition although not recently.
