Microscopic examination suggests the fragment is encrusted with ferrous and manganese oxide corrosion products presumably derived from the burial environment. Original blade width c.51mm, surviving height of fragment 40.5mm, maximum surviving thickness 13.5mm, weight 66.2 grams. Unfortunately, the fragment is not large enough to determine the specific type of the socketed axe. Socketed axes are a Late Bronze Age type and t…
