Polished stone axehead recorded at the Hidden Treasure Finds Day at the National Museum & Gallery, Wales. The axe is complete and is a comparatively large example.

Record ID: NMGW-DE9E23
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Butt fragment of a Neolithic stone axehead. The surface of the axe was ground or pecked, rather than polished. The axehead is made from an altered coarse dolorite, which is highly chloritic. The rock is likely to have originated from West Wales and is similar to sources which outcrop locally. The axehead has a pointed butt and rounded sides, which gently diverge. A little less than half of the original length survives. One of the faces shows evidence of damage through flaking, it is not clear whether this damage occurred in antiquity or more recently.
