Record ID: LIN-A579D5
Object type: AXE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Bronze Age stone battle axe head. The stone is unfinished. It has been polished, however it has split at the end along what appears to be a natural fault in the stone. The haft hole is only drilled about three quaters of the way through. It therefore seems that the axe was discarded when it split part way through its production.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC

Jadeite axehead, tear-drop shaped in plan and lozenge-shaped in profile and section, with patches of glassy polish and iron staining. The axehead was analysed non-destructively, using scattered reflectance spectroradiometry, in October 2007 as part of an international French project, Projet JADE, covering all axeheads of Alpine rock in Europe. The project is directed by Dr Pierre Petrequin, until recently of CNRS and the University of Besancon. The analysis was undertaken by Dr Michel Errera (then of the Musée Royal de l'Afrique Centrale, Tervuren, Belgium) at the CNRS Lab…

Record ID: SWYOR-73D4C5
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A flint axe head dating from the Neolithic period. The flint is light grey in colour and patinated, with part of the brown outer cortex still in place. It has a length of 109.91mm, width 37.06mm, thickness 20.34mm, weight 105.56g. It is smaller than most Neolithic axes, and is not particularly well made. The flint has imperfections such as holes and fossils in it, and the axe is not very well shaped, being more rectangular in section than oval. It is probably late Neolithic in date, as the tools with a lower quality of flint and working tend to be later in date (Edmonds, Stone Tools a…

Record ID: SWYOR-032116
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Neolithic flint axe which has been shaped by flaking. It is an axe with a thin tapering butt, classified by Manby as an A3 type. There is surviving cortex on one face at the butt end. It is an irregular pointed oval in section and is an elongated ovoid shape in plan. The butt tapers to a point but remains nearly as thick as the centre of the axe. The cutting edge is slightly pointed in plan and has been sharpened with some smaller removals. The flint is patinated and is white with large tan blotches. The flaking causes the median margin of the axes to be wavy or scalloped along the …

Green volcanic stone, from the Lake District (non-specialist identification by MF) Axe. A Greenstone axe presumed to be of Group VI (6), a product of the Langdale Pike axe factory, produced as an oval rough-out and finished by fine polishing which emphasises natural banding of the stone to striking decorative effect. The axe was originally of oval section, tapered towards its butt end and broader at the blade, and would be hafted for use. Use and re-polishing has left an angled blade, which retains its cutting edge. Both sides of the axe have also been reworked and highly p…
