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 …

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 which has been reused as a core. It does not appear to be the butt nor the tip of the axehead, but an uncertain portion of the body. The axehead is broadly lozenge shaped, measuring 69.96mm in length, 56.44mm wide and 34.26mm in thickness, though this varies. In colour, the axehead is creamy-white and flecks of light brown. There is evidence that, after breaking, the axehead was reused as a core, the flaking scars being visible mostly on the sides, with the rest of the axehead being extremely smooth and po…

A possible Mesolithic to Neolithic fabricator, dating to the period 8000 BC- 1000 BC.

From the cortex, a light grey colour, the surrounding area is a dark grey in colour, though this lightens as the fabricator continues. The retouch is covering, and is scaled and low angle. The ventral face is completely smooth, and a li…
