  • Thumbnail image of CAM-36A859

Record ID: CAM-36A859
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of stone, which has divided specialist opinion. It is not possible to confirm that this piece of stone is definitely an artefact and at least one specialist considers it to be a water smoothed pebble of igneous stone, possible glacial erratic pebble from boulder clay deposits, that has a plough struck spall removed from one side. Other specialists feel that this could possibly have been an axehead, probably dating to 2000-1500BC. Alternatively speculation as to whether it is a Palaeolithic handaxe has been muted. Both suggestions agree that it is not possible to determine t…

Record ID: LVPL-8B9CEA
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire

An almost complete unpolished flaked axe of Neolithic date and of Scandinavian type. The object has a convex cutting edge and straight parallel sides which taper to a squared off butt end. The cutting edge measures 64mm in width and is 3mm thick. A large oval flake has been removed from one face just above the cutting edge in recent times and is likely due to plough damage. Each face of the object has been worked with flaking. The flaked sides taper evenly towards the butt end which is rectangular in cross-section. The butt end measures 25.5mm in width and is 22mm thick. The butt e…

Record ID: SWYOR-21A416
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Doncaster
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete polished stone axe dating from the Neolithic period, about 4000 BC - 2200 BC. Only the cutting end survives. It is made from polished tan coloured fine grained stone. It is sub-rectangular in plan and is faceted in cross-section. There is edge damage on the curved convex cutting edge and a large damaged area near the break, probably from plough damage. It is 78.7mm long, 58.9mm wide and 25.7mm thick. 190g. Kevin Leahy (National Finds Advisor) adds that the cracking and crazing visible in the images may suggest that the axe has been burnt. Also, the side facets suggest…

Record ID: YORYM-C70664
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete iron axehead of uncertain date. The axehead is of the bearded type being sub-rectangular in plan with an expanded blade with a pronounced downward projection. Much of the original cutting edge has been lost to degradation though it appears to have had a gentle curve. The socket of the axe is deltoid in plan with two sub-triangular projections from the bottom edge which would have stabilised the axe on the wooden shaft. The metal is a mid orangey-brown colour and is heavily corroded. The axehead is 158mm long, 126.5mm wide at the blade, 71.3mm wide at the socket, 3.2mm thi…
