Record ID: WILT-731357
Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Mesolithic (8300-4500 BC) flint tranchet axehead, measuring 136.59x45.52x30.83mm and weighing 190.02g. The axehead is plano-convex in form and struck from a low-grade, browny-orange flint with less-silicious patches and thick cortex (which makes it difficult to flake). The cutting edge is rather more diagonally-flaked than transversely-flaked. The axehead is roughly struck with large flake scars. The sides and butt-end are steeply flaked.

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragment of a Mesolithic tranchet axehead or a slightly later Neolithic flaked axehead (not enough survives to be sure). It comprises the butt end (unless it is a narrow cutting end). Measures 35.05x34.92x22.51mm and weighs 23.9g. The axehead fragment is lentoid in cross-section and has large flake scars on both surfaces with some iron staining on the arises. The flint is 100% heavily patinated on all surfaces, including the break which indicates this occurred in ancient times.

An incomplete probable tranchet type axehead of Mesolithic date (8300-4500 BC), missing both butt and cutting end. It measures 74.68x39.60x23.57mm and weighs 66.5g. The flint surface has 100% patination with iron staining along the arises. In cross-section the axehead is lentoid and both faces have large flake scars. An areas of cortex is visible on one face only. The breaks at either end are ancient and display patination to a lesser extent than the rest of the surface. Recent plough damage shows a dark grey flint underneath. One face has an area of possible polishing, suggesting…
