A complete but somewhat corroded cast copper-alloy type Arreton developed flat axe, dating to the Early Bronze Age- c. 2000-1700 BC. The axehead is of broadly triangular form, with tapering undecorated sides demonstrating slightly raised shoulder flanges and a worn stop-ridge below the midpoint of the septum. Below this, the crescentic blade flares outwards prominently, thinning towards the cutting edge. Preserved in rather poor condition with relatively little of the original surface remaining, it measures 78.49mm in length, 14.67mm wide at its butt, 19.75mm wide by c. 9.5mm thick at …

A very worn and incomplete cast copper alloy (bronze) flat axe of Early Bronze Age date (c. 2200 - 2000 BC). The flat axe is broadly sub triangular in plan with a splayed crescent shaped blade. In profile it is broadly lentoid, with slightly tapering edges. In cross section the axe is rectangular. One long edge is curved and the opposite is relatively flat. The tips of the crescent shaped blade have been damaged through either abrasion or wear, as has the blade edge itself. A distinct blade facet is not present; it has been lost through abrasion. There is no evidence of any form of …

Early Bronze age copper alloy flat axehead. The axe is in fair condition with a brown/green patina and weighs 143 grams. It is 84mm long and up to 55mm wide, and has a convex butt and moderately concave sides, with a lenticular profile and cross-section. It is 24.7mm wide and 4mm thick at the butt end, from whence it expands gradually and reaches its thickest just under half way along its length where it is 10.5mm thick. From this point the axe becomes gradually thinner until it terminates in a crescent shaped blade 55mm wide and 4.5mm thick, although it would originally have been subs…

An early Bronze Age copper alloy flat axe head dating to the period circa 2100-1700 BC. The axe has a narrow butt that gradually expands in width towards the cutting edge. The axe widens more sharply where the sides meet the cutting edge. The cutting edge is convex. The butt is rectangular in cross-section and the blade's cross-section is a pointed oval shape. The end iof the butt is at an angle rather than straight, indicating that the axe head was broken in antiquity. The blade is pitted badly on both sides. The object is similar in shape to axes Brithdir and Willerby metalwork clas…

A cast copper-alloy miniature flat axe head of the Early Bronze Age, c.2200-2000 BC. Sub-triangular in plan, lenticular in section and in profile. At 101 mm in length the axe is slightly over half the size of a standard Early Bronze Age axe from South-west England. It is 43.5 mm wide at the blade end, tapering to 20 mm near the damaged butt end; its maximum thickness is 9.5 mm and its weight 164.45 g. The sides are straight and do not flare outwards to meet the blade edge which is slightly curved in plan. Much of the original surface has been lost and the axe is pitted and abraded thro…

A heavily worn and corroded middle Bronze Age flat axehead fragment. Dating to EBA III c. 1800-1600 BC. Description: This approximately thumbnail size flake from a flat axehead is heavily worn and corroded. There is a slight raised ridge down the middle of the fragment.

A complete but abraded undecorated flat axe of Early Bronze Age date (c. 2000 - 1700 BC). The axe probably best fits within the Migdale metalworking tradition Type: Migdale - undecorated variant. These are dated to the Early Bronze Age (EBA phase II / III), of metalworking stage IV-VI, which corresponds to Needham's (1996) Period 2-3 circa 2250 - 1900 CAL. BC. The flat axe is broadly sub rectangular in plan with a narrow butt evenly expanding sides that extend to a splayed crescent shaped blade. In profile the axe is broadly lentoid / lenticular, with tapering ends. In cross section th…

A complete copper alloy possible flat axehead dating to the Bronze Age. The axehead is sub-rectangular in shape, with rounded edges and tapers in width towards one end. In side view, the object is thickest in the centre and tapers in thickness towards each end, creating a pointed oval section. The metal is pitted, very corroded and mid green in colour. The axe head is 71.2 mm long, 29.7 mm wide, and 7.4 mm thick. It weighs 55 g. This object is relatively small compared to other Bronze Age flat axes and similar examples on the PAS database have been recorded under various type…

Workflow stage: Published Find published
Early Bronze Age bronze Developed flat axe, of Class 4 (following Needham 1983) or probably of Type Scrabo Hill (Schmidt & Burgess, 1981, p 63-5) and of Metalwork Assemblage IV to V, corresponding to Needham's (1996) Period 3; dated to 2,050BC - 1,700BC. The axe is near-complete but is heavily corroded with some peripheral loss (with a surviving length of 132.4mm and a weight of 295.4g). The butt is rounded (with a width of 31.1mm) and it is now uncertain how much rounding has resulted from corrosion. The sides of the axe are comparatively straight and gradually divergent to the bl…

An incomplete copper alloy flat axehead, of the Arreton developed flat axehead type, of Early to Middle Bronze Age dating (c. 1700 to c. 1500 BC). The axehead is sub rectangular with a crescentic blade. The blade edge has been lost, along with part of the butt. The body of the axe gradually tapers down to a probable rectangular butt. A recess is present on both front and back, a proto socket. No flanges are present along the edges of the axehead. No sign of decoration is present on any face, although most of the original surface has been lost. The sides are lentoid. It measures …

Early Bronze Age flat axehead, probably dating from the early 2nd mil BC. Small, very worn axe, probably of Migdale type or else, its Biggar Variant, with a slightly flattened butt and sides which are more parallel than those of Migdale axes. Surfaces very worn, undecorated. Comp. Schmidt and Burgess 1981, nos. 231-241. Ref: Schmidt, P.K. & Burgess, C.B. 1981. The Axes of Scotland and Northern England. Prahistorische Bronzefunde.

A highly abraded Bronze Age copper alloy miniature flat axehead, probably dating to c. 2150-1900 BC. The axehead is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and rectangular in cross-section. The axe expands from a now rounded butt, 19.6mm wide, to the mid-point, 22.8mm wide. Below the mid-point, which is thickened in profile, 9.2mm thick compared to 4.6mm at the butt, there is break in angle, with the blade expanding to 28.2mm, where it terminates in a curved cutting edge. There is the suggestion of flanges running down either edge of the axehead, though they are difficult to discern by eye, a…

A heavily corroded blade from a Bronze Age axehead. The axehead is heavily pitted and no original surface survives. This may be an Early Bronze Age flat axe but this is far from certain. It is too narrow to be an axe of socketed form.

Bronze Age small cast copper alloy flat axe with a narrow butt end and a slightly flanged blade, dating from the Early Bronze Age c. 2125-1950 BC. The edge of the blade of the axe appears to be unused, and the size of the axe suggests that it might have been used for votive reasons. The colour suggests that the axe is copper-rich and the original surface survives well in places, with patches of corrosion product and a few pits, and a few marks on one face of the blade. Otherwise the axe is in good condition. Flat axes with narrow butt ends with rectangular sections and slightly flange…
