Record ID: NMGW3257
Object type: AXE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of a probable iron axe, with an oval eye set within a notably wide expansion. Half of the eye, the poll and the end of the blade are missing. The front face of the surviving part of the blade is straight, while the rear, although initially straight, begins to curve back, presumably to form a wide cutting edge. 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…

Object type: AXE
Broad period: ROMAN
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of axe blade with a straight front face while the rear face, although straight at first, sweeps back to from a wide cutting edge. The axe blade has a triangular longitudinal section. 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…

Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A small slightly irregular partly polished Neolithic flint axe head. Measuring 112.6mm in length, 64mm in width at the widest point and 22.6mm in thickness at the thickest point. This axehead is complete apart from six small recent edge nicks which expose sub-surface black flint. The black flint revealed underneath the nicks is suprisingly unusual for flint axes in East Anglia which suggets that most black flint axes are actually imported into the area from elsewhere. Elsewhere the axe head is patinated blue grey. On one face this is more mottled and there is a patch of co…

Record ID: BH-086652
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Polished flint axe of Neolithic date (c.4,000 to 2,000). Light grey flint and highly polished, with some small flake removal scars around the edges. The only damage is to the haft end, where a small area has been struck off, probably by the plough. Otherwise the object is a fine example of the type, with a sharp blade and flattened ground edges on its long sides. It is 153.4mm in length and 63.3mm wide at the blade end and 36.8mm wide at the rear end. The maximum thickness is 34.3mm and it weighs 425g.

Fragment of a Neolithic polished flint axe. Length 69mm, width 71mm and 28mm thick. Weight 149.11g. The fragment is the blade end and consists of about 1/3 of the total length of the axe when complete. The break appears to be very old as it has the same patina as the other surfaces which are a creamy grey colour with some iron staining. The sides of the axe are almost parallel but flare slightly towards the blade which has an even and gentle curve. In cross-section it is oval-shaped except that both side edges of have been flattened by polishing. One face of the axe has two large flak…

The butt end, perhaps about half, of a flint axe of Neolithic date. Length 57mm, width 33mm and 18mm thick. Weight 40.34g. The butt end of the axe is rounded and the sides flare gently outwards towards the old break which is pointed oval-shape in cross-section. One side is largely occupied by a creamy coloured cortex. However, the edges of this face have received secondary working. The other side is flaked overall to form a central longitudinal ridge. The flaked surfaces have a dark grey coloured patina and the break is similarly patinated, indicating perhaps, that the break is probab…
