Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lower Palaeolithic, chert handaxe. This is a 'ficron' type handaxe which belongs to the Middle Acheulian tradition. The axe is sub-triangular in plan, with straight sides, a slightly rounded tip and a flat butt. The flat butt has been created by removing a single large flake from the ventral side, this maybe a later feature as the patina that has formed on this scar is a much lighter creamy-brown compared to the rest of the axe. There are multiple large flaking scars covering both the dorsal and ventral sides with slightly finer flake removal along the edges. The whole artefact has a …

Middle Palaeolithic handaxe this would have been cordate shaped but the tip has been truncated, this is an old break. It is bifacial worked with large flaking scars covering the ventral and dorsal sides, the is short, fine retouch along the edges. Dark brown flint with creamy patches throughout, a thin light creamy patina has formed. Nicholas Ashton from the British Museum has said 'It's probably of a type that is known as a 'bout coupe' or 'Coygan type' handaxe, which generally seem to date to between 60 ,000- 40,000 years ago.'
