  • Thumbnail image of SWYOR-FE73F2

Record ID: SWYOR-FE73F2
Object type: ADZE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic flint adze. The adze has one convex worked side with the other side being flatter (but also worked). The tool is oval shaped in plan (and semi-circular in section) with the working end widening slightly. The other narrower end of the adze would have been hafted into a wooden handle and it would have functioned as a heavy-duty tool for cutting trees and woodworking. The adze weighs 159.95g and measures 118.5mm in length, 46mm in width and 27mm in thickness.

Fragment of an early Neolithic polished stone tool – either an adze or axehead. The tool has been ground so that the areas of surface still surviving are smooth. There are quite large areas of damage on the tool; the blade edge is completely missing making the original size of the tool difficult to interpret. The tool weighs 146.77g and measures 83.95mm in length, 43.71mm in width and 26.87mm in thickness.

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Part of an iron blade possibly from a adze, although it is unusually flat, or perhaps a mattock. The tool is 143.47mm long, 97.85mm wide and 11.77mm thick. The sub-rectangular blade has a convex cutting edge which does not project to the sides. The opposite end is broken off, so the orientation of any socket is not known. The side near the break curve inwards. The uniformity of the metal suggests a post medieval date.
