Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Paleolithic flint handaxe, dating to the period c. 500,000 BC- c.40,000 BC. The handaxe is broadly circular in shape, measuring 99.43mm in length, 80.94mm wide and 34.03mm thick. In colour, the axehead is creamy-white to grey and flecks of light brown, with the ventral face being more grey-brown.

Evidence of multi-face working can be seen around the edges of this face. The edges of this axe have a slight S shaped undulating profile characteristic of axes…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Neolithic polished axehead, dating to the period 3500 BC- 2200 BC. This appears to be the tip and most of the body, but as the cutting edge has broken off it is unclear how much of this is the original axehead. What remains is broadly oblong in shape, measuring 111.26mm in length, 52.92mm wide and 33.22mm thick, though it tapers to 7.33mm at the tip. In colour, the axehead is creamy-white, with patches of mid grey and flecks of light brown. The axehead is very smooth, heavily polished, with an abrupt break at the bottom, and small, scaled retouch or chipping on the left h…
