Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete ground stone axehead of late Neolithic date, c. 4000 - 2300 BC. The axehead is sub-ovate in plan, narrower at the butt end with a rounded curve to the cutting edge. It has an ovate section. The butt end and cutting edge are damaged, the latter more so. The unpolished nature of the object suggests it was not properly finished. Gabroic, coarse grained, with mica inclusions. The axehead is 99.1mm long, 62.6mm to 39.7mm wide, 37.6mm thick and weighs 400g.
