Stone (microdiorite) axe hammer, lozenge-shaped in plan at the blade end with a slightly rounded butt end, sub-rectangular in profile and sub-square in section, with a slightly off-centre perforation, circular in plan and an hour-glass shape in profile. The sides of the axe hammer are straight and vertical and the two faces are slightly concave in profile and the shaft-hole is flush with the surface of each face, but slightly recessed at either side, where it is within 1 cm of the edge of the axe hammer. The butt end, used for hammering, is relative flat at the apex, but does not show…

A complete Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age axe hammer dating from c. 2500-1500BC. The axe hammer was fabricated from an unidentified igneous rock. In plan, the axe hammer is broadly drop shaped, with a circular perforation towards the butt. The perforation has curved sides and the circumference reduces towards its centrepoint - it is hour glass shaped. The pierced sides of the axe hammer are largely flattened although there is a marked incline around the area of the socket and the butt. The edge which runs around the axe hammer is concave at the butt, becoming more straight …

This is a (very) small early Bronze Age/late Neolithic perforated stone axe hammer. The axe is in the form of a ‘teardrop’ with a parallel profile. The perforation is ‘egg timer’ shape, opening from a central diameter of 13.5 mm to 20.7 mm at the outer surface. The overall style is consistent with an early class 1 Axe Hammer from Roe’s ‘Typology of Stone Implements with Shafts’. However, whilst the profile fits, the size does not. This object is very small at just 7.32 cm long, the more typical axe hammer is double that and more. This particular implement may t…

Stone axe hammer, elongated lozengic shape in plan with a slight hourglass perforation in the centre. Each blade is convex in profile and the one remaining (albeit damaged) cutting edge is curved, but not flared. The axe head has been damaged over time and part of one blade is missing altogether, in addition to some large chips out of the remaining cutting edge. It is possible that it may have fractured during use. The central perforation is c. 37.1 mm in diameter at the complete end and the central section of the perforation is narrower at roughly c. 28 mm. The axe head has been fini…

An axe-hammer of igneous stone found in 1989 holding open the door of a shed in the rear garden of a house at Castle Place, Abergele. The finder Mr Nathan Roberts was undertaking renovation work on the house at the time. A fine example with overall pecking marks visible, blunted at the axe end, signs of damage at the butt end. One of the perforated sides is slightly concave. Shaft hole is towards the butt end, and is splayed at both ends suggesting that it was drilled from both sides (Spencer, J, pers comm, 2004). Thin section extracted and studied by Dr Richard E. Bevins of the Ge…

A stone perforated implement or 'axe hammer'/ 'battle axe' (length: approx 184mm; width: 86.1mm; thickness/ side section taken at widest point at blade: 73mm; weight: unknown as exceeds the limits of the scales). The sides have nearly parallel faces with a slightly weathered blade tip and rounded butt at the opposite end. There is a significant indentation at the rounded butt end, which could have been caused by breakage or weathering. The surface of this feature is smooth. Additionally, there are a couple of probably recent scratch marks along the sides. The drilled and smooth pe…

Object type: AXE HAMMER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Large complete but unfinished Early Bronze Age (c. 2500 ? 1450 BC) axe hammer. The implement has been made on a medium-grained carboniferous sandstone (a band of similar material can be found to the north of the findspot, stretching from St. Brides Bay to Saundersfoot). The axe hammer is large and heavy and has been roughly shaped giving the implement a somewhat irregular appearance as is usual with this implement type. The sides are gently convex in profile, establishing the artefact as a Roe?s (1979) Class I. The upper and lower faces may also be judged convex making the axe hammer d…
