Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Bournemouth
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Mesolithic tranchet axe or adze, rectangular in plan, lozenge-shaped in profile, triangular in section at the butt end and lenticular at the slightly wider blade end. Made on an elongated flint nodule which has been flaked from both faces to remove most of the cortex, except for a small patch at the butt end, to produce the outline shape of the axe. Large flakes have been removed from one edge of both faces, mid-way along the axe, resulting in a thinning of the axe at this point, apparently for hafting the axe.

De Jersey writes: "On the index card for CCI 79.0098, Melinda Mays refers to a letter of 14 June 1913 from G.F. Hill, in the Red House Museum archives, mentioning the discovery of that coin "in a broken pot not preserved, with a Constantius and 6 SW British type". If the association with the Roman coin is correct then this might be better regarded as a Romano-British deposit. It is possible that one of the other coins was CCI 79.0225, a struck bronze stater (ABC 2175) found by Mr Pester at Pokesdown Cliffs, Southbourne, in 1912 (Haselgrove 1984, 137), but the precise location of the f…
