The axehead is broadly sub-rectangular in shape, tapering from 47.7mm wide behind the blade edge to a squat, rounded sub-triangular butt, 29.1mm wide.

The flint has been bifacially worked, with flakes removed in a variety of directions and with a striking platform surviving at the apparently unfinished butt. A number of short removal scars struck from the edge terminate in negative hinge fractur…
