Record ID: BERK-047CA5
Object type: AXE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete iron axe head of uncertain date. The axe has a curved cutting edge and splayed tip, its thickness gradually widening towards the now missing axe butt. Iron axes are notoriously difficult to date when discovered outside of a dated archaeological context as the general form of axes has continued from at least as early as the Roman period (Manning 1976, 3). This example was possibly used as a Woodsman's axe and is likely to date to around the medieval period, probably from the 10th to 16th centuries AD.
