Record ID: CORN-586162
Object type: AXEHEAD ROUGHOUT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete axehead roughout made from a gabbroic greenstone cobble that is finer grained and more doleritic than other examples from this area. The interrelationship between the weathering, fracture and possible grinding of the cobble are very complex. The butt end is rounded and damaged, and the blade end has completely worn away so that the roughout is now waisted and narrower at the blade end, where it tapers to a point in profile. Half of the ventral face is also missing, where a section has sheared off and left a stepped projection towards the butt end of the roughout. Several fl…

Object type: AXEHEAD ROUGHOUT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Broken blade end of an axehead roughout of coarse gabbroic greenstone, U-shaped in plan, lozenge-shaped in profile and oval in section. There is a defined yet damaged cutting edge at the blade end, and the entire surface is deeply pitted and weathered. The roughout is broken in half so that the butt end is missing. This is one of a group of 14 stone tools described as 'potential axes' that have been found on Clodgy Moor or Trungle Moor in Paul parish. A few of these have distinct areas where grinding has been carried out to start a blade. The remainder have a broadly axe-shaped outlin…

Object type: AXEHEAD ROUGHOUT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of gabbroic greenstone cobble, triangular in plan and in profile and circular in section. The piece is broken at one end and tapers to a point at the other, to form a conical shape, similar to the pointed butt end of an axe. The surface appears to have been ground into this shape, rather than weathered, and there is a large spur projecting from the broken end at one edge, which seems to have formed naturally into two concentric protrusions. This is one of a group of 14 stone tools described as 'potential axes' that have been found on Clodgy Moor or Trungle Moor in Paul parish…

Fragment of gabbroic greenstone cobble, triangular in plan and in profile and circular in section. The piece is broken at one end and tapers to a point at the other, to form a conical shape, similar to the pointed butt end of an axe. The surface appears to have been ground into this shape, rather than weathered, and there is a rectangular flake that has been removed from the broken end at one edge, which may be more recent damage. This is one of a group of 14 stone tools described as 'potential axes' that have been found on Clodgy Moor or Trungle Moor in Paul parish. A few of these ha…

Fragment of gabbroic greenstone cobble, triangular in plan and in profile and ovoid in section. The piece is broken at one end and tapers to a point at the other, to form a conical shape, similar to the pointed butt end of an axe. The surface appears to have been ground into this shape, rather than weathered, and there is a large spur projecting from the broken end at one edge, which may be harder material to grind down flat, or perhaps why the axe broke at this point. This is one of a group of 14 stone tools described as 'potential axes' that have been found on Clodgy Moor or Trungle…

Weathered cobble of greenstone, oval in plan and ovoid in profile and section. There is rough working over the whole of the surface of the flat oval shape which may have once been an axehead roughout, and has since been broken and weathered. One end tapers more to a rounded point, but there is no clear blade or butt end. The ventral face is more flat, mainly through weathering, while the dorsal face is more pecked. This is one of a group of 14 stone tools described as 'potential axes' that have been found on Clodgy Moor or Trungle Moor in Paul parish. A few of these have distinct area…

Weathered cobble of metamorphic slate deriving ultimately from the granite aureole, which has been shaped into an axehead roughout, now broken. The roughout is rhomboidal in plan, and lozenge-shaped in profile and in section. The blade end tapers to a point in both plan and profile, so the cutting edge is missing, and the butt end has broken off. The ventral face is more ground down, mainly through weathering, while the dorsal face is more flaked and damaged. This is one of a group of 14 stone tools described as 'potential axes' that have been found on Clodgy Moor or Trungle Moor in P…

Broken blade end of an axehead roughout of igneous rock but not gabbroic greenstone, U-shaped in plan, and lozenge-shaped in profile and in section. There is a defined yet damaged cutting edge at the blade end, and the ventral face is more ground down, through use rather than weathering, while the dorsal face is more pitted.

Fragment of greenstone cobble, triangular in plan, C-shaped in profile and semi-circular in section. The upper surface is rising at an 80-70 degree angle to the top of the stone, which would have been quite rounded, and the base has been ground flat, with two separate smooth-worn facets on the upper and lower faces, probably from use as a rubbing stone. This is one of a group of cobbles found in the same area, made of various materials, that were used as domestic artefacts such as mullers, rubbers and whetstones. All of these would be at home on a Middle Bronze Age settlement. Unfort…

Large granite cobble, used as a complete well-worn muller, oval in plan and plano-convex in profile and in section. The upper surface is convex with some wear and pitting and the base has been ground flat during its use as a muller, and then damaged more recently by the plough, judging by the gashes to the base and side of the stone. The sides also have several facets or shallow concavities due to damage. This is one of a group of cobbles found in the same area, made of various materials, that were used as domestic artefacts such as mullers, rubbers and whetstones. All of these would …

Fragment of the edge of a greenstone muller, triangular in plan, C-shaped in profile and sub-rectangular in section. The upper surface is worn but rising at a slight angle to suggest a convex top of the muller, the side edge is quite rounded, and the base has been ground flat through use. The profile of the fragment and the smooth base suggests it may have been part of a muller.
