Record ID: WILT-00A728
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 …

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…

  • Thumbnail image of WILT-43B254

Record ID: WILT-43B254
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper-alloy Late Bronze Age socketed axehead, dating to the period 1100 BC- 800 BC. All that remains of this axehead is the cutting edge, blade tip and part of the blade. It is possibly a Penard/Wilburton type, though exact categorisation is difficult as only a small portion of the axehead remains. The fragment measures 30.15mm in length and 35.63mm at maximum width on the cutting edge, before tapering down to 29.22mm on the blade. What remains of the axehead is triangular in cross-section. The patina is quite smooth, and light green in colour. The cutting edge has wo…
