The axe is made of iron. The shaft appears to be curled around to form a socket, but this is not certain. The upper edge of the blade is concave, the cutting edge of the blade is an expanded convex shape. The surface of the axe is corroded. The dating of the axe remains uncertain.

Record ID: NMGW-6D1B04
Object type: AXE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Blade end fragment of a Bronze Age axe; the fragment is worn with none of the original surface surviving. The broken end does not show any evidence of a socket. The surviving blade edge is gently curved. The blade width is slender, with the sides gently expanding to the blade. The slender dimensions of the fragment suggests the piece may have come from a late palstave or socketed axe, although some of the width may have been lost through erosion.
