Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Flintshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An almost intact cast bronze / copper alloy slender and faceted socketed axe of Late Bronze Age date (1000 - 800 BC). The axe is almost complete (95%), with only a few chips missing from the edge of the blade and the socket. The original edge of the blade is not present so it is hard to determine how the blade extended outwards. The axe is sub rectangular in plan, with the edge of the cutting edge appears to expand / flare outwards to form an convex cutting edge. The expanded blade has a curved convex (crescent shaped) cutting edge which is relatively poorly preserved. The socke…
