Record ID: LEIC-48C9DE
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic polished stone axe fragment, 51mm long, 44mm wide and 14mm thick with a weight of 37.47grams. The fragment represents part of the blade end of an axe, but is very damaged with little original surface remaining. It has part of the curved blade which merges into the adjoining facetted edge, which has a thin angular face butting up to the rounded surface. The axe appears to be Langdale slate (fine grained tuff), so it could be part of a group VI axe.
