Early Bronze Age bronze flat axe of uncertain type, possibly of Type Dunnottar and of Metalwork Assemblage III, corresponding to Needham's (1996) Period 2, c. 2,300 - 2,050 BC. The axe has an overall length of 106.95mm and weighs 176.7g. The butt has suffered some damage, but is narrow and short with a surviving width of 16mm and would have been rounded or possibly even pointed. The sides are straight and diverge gradually to the unexpanded blade. The sides are rounded across their thickness, giving the axe an oval section. The blade has a width of 59.04mm and has a shallow blade edge…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Swansea

The sides of the blade more or less evenly curve outwards towards the cutting edge from a point situated slightly over one third of the length of the axe from the butt. The axe is undecorated. Longitudinal stritations visible on the relatively uncorro…

The sides of the axe are comparatively straight and are very slig…
