Record ID: CORN-BA9E64
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Flint axe, triangular in plan and lenticular in profile and section, tapering to a point at the butt end and squared off at the blade end. The axe is bifacially and bimarginally reworked throughout. There is no polishing on the blade and it is difficult to identify any surface gloss as the whole axe has a surface sheen. The cutting edge is symmetrical in profile suggesting that the implement would have been used as an axe rather than an adze. The flint is a light grey colour which is typical of the local flint derived from the Lower Chalk of the Yorkshire Wolds, but erratic flint is a…

Record ID: YORYM-151206
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete stone axehead of Neolithic date. The axehead is oval in section with narrow and flattened sides. One face is smooth and polished while the other has a large indentation an two patches which have been scraped. The wear around the edges of this area suggest the damage is old. The axe is comprised of a grey-green fine-grained siliceous tuff - a sedimentary volcanic rock possibly from the Great Langdale quarries in Cumbria. This stone was most probably chosen for its colour and fineness which allowed it to be highly polished. It is likely that axes such as this were high s…

An incomplete stone axehead of Neolithic date. The axehead is sub-oval in both plan and section with extensive damage to one side.

The cutting edge of the axe is still fairly sharp with two small damaged notches to either side. The axe is comprised of a grey-green fine-grained siliceous tuff - a sedimentary volcanic rock possibly from the Great Langdale quarries in Cumbria. This stone was most probably chosen for its colour and fineness which…

An incomplete, possibly modified, greenstone axehead of Neolithic date. The cutting edge of the axehead is all that remains and is ovate in plan and triangular section. The edges are worn and broken though the remaining original surfaces are smooth. The fragment is comprised of a grey-green fine-grained siliceous tuff - a sedimentary volcanic rock possibly from the Great Langdale quarries in Cumbria. This stone was most probably chosen for its colour and fineness which allowed it to be highly polished. It is likely that axes such as this were high status and probably not functional.…
