Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper alloy Bronze Age axe. Only the blade end survives. The blade curved gently outwards and the sides are both straight. The break across the inner end is well worn. The surface of the metal is corroded in places. Only a broad Bronze Age date can be suggested due to the lack of diagnostic features.

An incomplete Neolithic flaked an polished flint axe. It is roughly triangular in shape, with largely straight sides and a slightly outwards curving blade end. Both faces are covered with scaled, covering retouch and have been partially polished on the ridges between the flaking scars. The blade end has also been polished to create a sharp cutting edge. There is an abrupt break across the butt end and its tip is missing. The flint is an opaque light grey in colour with some surface patination.

County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper alloy mid to late Bronze Age (and into the early Iron Age) socketed axe. Only a small section of the socketed end survives survive. This is curved in profile with a raised rounded rim along the outer face of the socket end. The breaks are well worn. Both faces have the remains of a dark brown shiny patina in places, but this has worn away on the raised sections. Socketed axes were in use during the mid to late Bronze Age, from c.1300-700 BC. Length: 35.90mm, width: 24.49mm, thickness: 7.02mm, weight: 20.58g
