County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic (4000 - 2,100 BC) flint flaked axehead with possible (old) damage to the butt end. The axehead has an elliptical cross-section, being rather flatter on one face than the other. This face has transverse flake removals behind the cutting edge for c.one third of the length of the axehead. The cutting edge (41.7mm wide) is convex in shape and slightly lop-sided. Otherwise flake removals, to both faces, are from the centre towards the edge. The more convex face has a central ridge of coretex, tapering off to one edge just before the butt-end (21.2x19.3mm).

An incomplete gilded and silvered/ tinned copper alloy Roman 'composite gilded spoked disc' brooch, also known as a 'wheel' type and dating to c. AD 100-300.
