Blade fragment of a Bronze Age axe, c.2300 BC- 800 BC. The blade edge is curved, and appears complete. It has broken before the shaft, having a rectangular cross-section at the broken edge where it is thickening. The axe has a dark brown patina which is slightly patchy due to corrosion. As so little remains it is not possible to pin it down to a certain type of axe, or a more specific period within the Bronze Age.
