Object type: PERFORATED OBJECT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Perforated stone pebble, possible Prehistoric stone pebble hammer or mace-head of Mesolithic or Neolithic date The mace-head is made on a water-rolled pebble and is complete (with a length of 126.6mm, a maximum width of 85.7mm, a maximum thickness of 33.3mm and a weight of 558.1g). The perforation is off-centre and has a pronounced hour-glass profile (with diameters at the faces of 31mm and 33mm and a minimum diameter of 9.0mm). There is evidence of pecking on the sides of the perforation, which are now well-worn, probably through subsequent water action, rather than rubbing from…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Polished stone axehead recorded at the Hidden Treasure Finds Day at the National Museum & Gallery, Wales. The axe is complete and is a comparatively large example. Evidence of shaping via pecking is evident over areas of the axe, particularly around the sides of the face. The remainder of the faces are polished. The axehead is of oval section, with gently convex sides. The butt is short and slightly angled (c. 5-10 degrees) from the vertical axis of the axehead. The blade is curved and has retained its sharp edge. One of the faces is slightly dished, probably because of the shape of th…

Record ID: NMGW-DE9E23
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Butt fragment of a Neolithic stone axehead. The surface of the axe was ground or pecked, rather than polished. The axehead is made from an altered coarse dolorite, which is highly chloritic. The rock is likely to have originated from West Wales and is similar to sources which outcrop locally. The axehead has a pointed butt and rounded sides, which gently diverge. A little less than half of the original length survives. One of the faces shows evidence of damage through flaking, it is not clear whether this damage occurred in antiquity or more recently.

Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire

Perforated whetstone of rectangular cross-section, made of a fine-grained siltstone. The stone tapers gently to the flat end. The top of the whetstone has been damaged and is irregular. The perforation is regular and has been drilled; it has been positioned slightly off-centre on one face. All four faces illustrate evidence of whetting, but show no obvious sign of being dished through prolonged use.

Object type: AXE HAMMER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Large complete but unfinished Early Bronze Age (c. 2500 ? 1450 BC) axe hammer. The implement has been made on a medium-grained carboniferous sandstone (a band of similar material can be found to the north of the findspot, stretching from St. Brides Bay to Saundersfoot). The axe hammer is large and heavy and has been roughly shaped giving the implement a somewhat irregular appearance as is usual with this implement type. The sides are gently convex in profile, establishing the artefact as a Roe?s (1979) Class I. The upper and lower faces may also be judged convex making the axe hammer d…

Basin or trough - the small size of the basin suggests that it may have been used to collect water from a hand pump. Crudely carved out from a piece of local stone - possibly a Presili 'bluestone'. It contains a drainage hole on the side and has been truncated. Probably 18th or 19th century
