Object type: AXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lower Palaeolithic flint biface.Boldly worked small nodule of cherty North Downs flint, appears to have been re-sharpened at its tip by the removal of two transverse flakes,one on each face. Two expanses of original thermal surface and a small area of worn cortex survive at the butt. The piece has developed a glossy creamy-white surface patination, marked with several patches of iron-staining.There are some minor frost cracks,while some of the higher points have suffered weathering.The tip has been broken and repaired since its discovery.

Object type: AXE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragment of very worn cast bronze, roughly triangular in shape, measuring 20mm in length, 39mm in width and 6mm in thickness. This fragment is most likely to be part of the blade end of a mid to late Bronze Age axehead or palstave, although with such a small and worn fragment it is impossible to be completely certain about this identification. The thinner likely blade edge is very worn but appears to be an original edge. One other original edge down the side of the axe also survives. The other edges are very worn and incomplete due to old breaks. The patina is dark brown and pat…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Complete stone axe of Neolithic date. Length 123mm, width 66mm and 36mm thick. Weight 462g. The axe has been completely ground although some of the deeper flake scars remain. Viewing either face, the sides flare out and then downwards from the thick rounded butt towards the semi-circular cutting edge. Viewed from either side, the butt is much wider than the cutting edge. The cutting edge is rounded and blunt. It is possible that this axe is unfinished. Alternatively it may have become “rolled” within the modern plough-soil of the Ferruginous Sands in which it was found. The axe is…
