Early Bronze age copper alloy flat axe blade, 57mm long, 61mm wide (at blade) and 9 mm thick with a weight of 123grams. The object is rectangular in cross section and sub rectangular in form. It is in fair condition, having lost some surface and it is incomplete having snapped about half way down its orginal length? Here is it 26mm wide and 9mm thick. From here its sides flare slightly outwards and taper in thickness to form a slightly rounded blade 1mm thick. It is decorated on both faces with a series of linear depressions running towards the blade. The axe is similar to a Migdal…

A worn copper-alloy flat axe of the early to middle Bronze Age. The blade end is crescentic in form, flaring to either side of the axe. The cutting edge is damaged in places but otherwise is in good condition. It has a flat, rectangular body that gradually tapers towards the butt end. Half way along the axe on either side is a shallow stop-ridge that seem to be early forms of the more prominant versions seen on palstaves. The axe has patches of a brownish patina; the surface is smooth and in good condition.

Fragment of a Bronze Age axe, probably a socketed or flanged axe. The fragment is from one corner of the blade. The cutting edge is curved and still relatively sharp. The bottom and rear sides are breaks but the top is inward curving and part of the original perimeter. The fragment is mid-green in colour with patches of bright blue corrosion.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large complete early Bronze Age narrow-butted flat axe in fine condition. The axe measures 161.6mm in length and 99.6mm across the blade. The butt measures 37.3mm. The thickness of the axe is 12.00mm. The sides are bevelled and the blade is slightly flat which may suggest a lot of sharpening. There is a little damage to the surfaces which are pitted and now have a slightly rough texture. This fine axe belongs to the Migdale-Marnoch tradition of the early Bronze Age (named after two sites in Scotland).

Fragment of a middle to late Bronze Age axe. The fragment comprises a well-ground blade and part of the flat edge of the axe. One side has a deep, smooth depression in it which presumably occured during its manufacture. The axe has apparently shattered along a brittle fault line in the casting.

A nearly complete copper-alloy unlooped palstave or 'flanged axe' dating to the middle Bronze Age. The butt is incomplete and now marked by a roughly angular line. The break bears the same patination as the rest of the axe suggesting that it was broken in antiquity. One corner of the butt is visible; the other is missing. The halft-end has two pronounced flanges on either side. The crest of the flange is straight rather than inward curving as sometimes seen on other axes. The septum is smooth and seemingly unworn. At the end of the septum is a moulded stop-ridge set transversely acr…

An incomplete copper alloy palstave dating to the middle Bronze Age. The axe is in a good state of preservation despite missing its butt-end. The main body is rectangular in cross-section and has very smooth sides. The body flattens and flares to the blade which is comparitavely very wide and seemingly unworn. The cutting edge is still sharp and one of the tips is still worked to a prominant point. The surface of the axe is pitted in places, but otherwise smooth and stable. The axe is 81mm in length and 62mm wide at the blade end. The break at the butt end measures 25mm x 14mm.

A fragment of a socketed axehead of Late Bronze Age date. This fragment is the lower part of the blade. Viewed in plan, the sides flare outwards slightly to the cutting edge which is modestly curved. A break has occurred along the base of the socket where the wall of the axe, at this side, was much narrower than the opposite wall. Therefore, this break occurred along a weak point. This suggests that it wasn’t made particularly well as the clay moulding placed at the centre of the cast wasn’t central when the bronze was poured, resulting in a lopsided socket and one side being thick…

Complete copper alloy socketed axehead. The socket of the axehead has eight facets to it and a loop at the top next to the opening. The opening of the socket has a lip around the circumference. The two side facets widen to form the sides of the blade. The blade is curved, worn and extends on either side beyond the line of the socket.

A very worn cast copper alloy Bronze Age Arreton Down type flange flat axe. The axe is incomplete, missing the butt and one of the blade tips and only traces of the original surface remain. The sides are straight and have slight flanges that have been cast with the object and curve out sharply at the blade end to produce an expanded crescentic cutting edge. The length is 76.5mm, the width at the blade end is 51.0mm, the width at the truncated butt end is 22.2mm, the maximum thickness is 11.4mm and the weight is 118.61g.

Incomplete cast copper alloy flat axe, dating to the end of the early Bronze Age (c. 1700-1600 BC). The axe has flat sides that gently flare outwards to the crescentric cutting edge. The cutting edge is very abraded and damaged, and the tip at either side is missing. The side walls are slightly flanged however the axe is so worn that the crest is nearly at the same level as the main body. The butt is rounded and very worn. The entire surface of the axe is a mid-green colour with a light brown patina. There are no visible edge bevels or stop bevels.

Early Bronze Age flat axehead. The axe has an expanded blade with a crescentic cutting edge. The blade does not expand very far beyond the line of the shaft, suggesting that it has been used and reground a number of times. The tapering shaft sides are rounded, and the object is damaged around the butt. The blade width is 53mm, and the broken butt end measures 21mm in width. The surface is pitted and has an even mid green patina.

Blade fragment from a cast copper alloy flat axe. The axe is broken in a roughly straight line after the blade has curved inwards from the blade tip. The break is well patinated and consistant with the surface patination suggesting that it was broken in antiquity. The cutting edge is gently curved and worn, and its current proximity to the main body of the axe, the angle of the cutting edge, and the relatively short splayed edge tips suggest that the cutting edge has been reground a number of times. The width of the cutting edge is 59mm from tip to tip. The thickness across the…

Possible blade fragment from a Bronze Age flat axe. The blade has a very worn abraded crescentric cutting edge. The sides are slightly concave. The surfaces of the blade have a brown-red patina. The blade is consistently 1mm thick at all points over the surface, which would make it less likely to be from an axe since one would expect it to thicken toward the middle.

Bronze Age stone battle axe head. The stone is unfinished. It has been polished, however it has split at the end along what appears to be a natural fault in the stone. The haft hole is only drilled about three quaters of the way through. It therefore seems that the axe was discarded when it split part way through its production.
