Object type: AXE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Published Find published

Unfortunately, the loss of the front of the blade prevents confirmation of this suggestion. The thickness of the blade narrows towards the missing cutting edge suggesting that, when complete, the blade had a triangular longitudinal section. Surviving length 159mm, maximu…

Part of the cutting edge, most of the socket and the poll are missing and the remaining portion of the axe is heavily corroded. It is not possible to identify with the naked eye the weld line where one side of the socket is joined to the blade. An example of Manning's Type 2 (1985, 15-16, fig.3); however, it is not certain that this axe is Roman in date. The form of many iron tool types are parti…
