Record ID: DENO-A41483
Object type: POLISHED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete stone Neolithic polished axehead (c.4000-c.2200 BC). The axehead is greenish grey in colour, with red striations. The axehead has plough damage at the butt and the cutting edge, but is otherwise undamaged. The axehead tapers towards the butt and has a vesica-shaped (pointed oval) cross-section. Both edges are faceted. This feature and the material the axe is made from suggest that the axe probably comes from the Great Langdale axe factory (in the Lake District).

A possible Neolithic (c.4000-c.2350 BC) axe haft made of deer antler. Overall the object measures 296mm long, 74mm wide and 50mm thick. Dr Kevin leahy says: 'It could be an axe haft, someone seems to have gone to the trouble of hollowing out the cancellous interior of the antler to form a socket which has the right sort of section. I know of axes being placed in antler sockets mounted on wooden hafts from the Neolithic Lakeside villages in Switzerland but nothing from the UK. I am a bit worried by the straight cut termination at the distal end of the antler beam as I don't know ho…
