An almost complete very fine and well finished axe of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. The object has an rounded oval section, which has been ground at one end to form a chamfered blade end.

Record ID: SUSS-59F641
Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Prehistoric utilised beach pebble of of an igneous rock, probably basalt, with a dark grey matrix with some fine white quartz flecks and fine quartz seams. The pebble has multiple peck marks on both sides, possibly cause by use as a hammerstone. The peck marks are concentrated towards the centre of each face with few or none one the sides which may suggest it was used to hammer onto rather than with. Measures 66.4mm by 59.3mm by 27.6mm and weighs 161 grams. Large numbers of Neolithic and Bronze Age worked flints have been found in this area and this is likely to be contemporary.
