Record ID: HESH-792474
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete, but damaged, knapped (?), and ground axe head of probable later Neolithic date (2900-2100 BC). The axe is knapped from a mid brownish green black igneous rock, possibly a Gabbro. This rock could be knapped in a similar way to flint to form tools. However, the composition of the rock which forms the axe head is different to that of the majority of stone axe heads from the period. The axe head also has a thin seam of softer material probably a pyroxene inclusion. Pyroxene is common as an inclusion in many igneous rocks but is not often found in stone axe heads. The presence o…

A very worn, copper alloy, socketed axe blade fragment. The orignal surfaces and any detail of the axe have been eroded away leaving a bright green pitted patina. The sides of the axe flare out to a curved bade that appears to have had some nicks on the edge before weathering in the ploughsoil.

Record ID: GLO-B316B4
Object type: AXE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: South Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy axe blade fragment, length 36mm, width 9mm, thickness 4mm, weight 4.22g. The forward edge is convex with a low angled curve, the rear edge is broken along its length. This is the forward edge of a Bronze Age axe, the breakage pattern along the rear suggest that this may have originally been the cutting edge of a Late Bronze Age socketed axe. Because the styles of the Early and Middle Bronze Ages, have a flange on either side of the blade, it is highly unlikely that any of these would break in a similar manner as this example. Therefore, a Late Bronze Age date is t…

  • Thumbnail image of HAMP-DE8C37

Record ID: HAMP-DE8C37
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic flint axe complete except for a small number of recent flakes. The blade of the axe is rounded and is missing a large flake from one surface. From here the axe tapers gradually to the butt end (W. 85.5-35mm) which is missing three large and some smaller flakes from the same surface, but would probably have been rounded. The surface from which the flakes are missing has a pale/white patina, except where the flakes are missing, indicating that these are the result of recent damage. The recent flakes reveal a beige/grey flint evident on the other surface where although the…
