Record ID: NLM-2B6FA8
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Greenstone polished axe, reworked into waisted form. Polished Group 6 axehead fragment comprising a crescentic cutting edge and c.30mm of the original sides of the axe meeting its ends. Beyond this point, pecking has transformed a probable originally oval form of lentoid section by forming a marked waist or in-swing.

There is a central retained patch of cortex on the dorsal side. Dorsal retouch invasive, sub-parallel, low angled; ventral retouch invasive, parallel, low angled. Dates from c3500 to …
