A cast, lead donkey or mule head probably dating to the post-medieval to early modern period c.AD 1700-1900.

County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic axe. A Greenstone axe presumed to be of Group VI (6), a product of the Langdale Pike axe factory, produced as an oval rough-out and finished by fine polishing which emphasises natural banding of the stone to striking decorative effect. The axe is pointed oval in cross-section with lateral facets (flattened upper and lower edges). It tapers at both ends, one terminating with a wide, worn and slightly chipped cutting edge, and at the other end to a narrower, more abraded butt. The surface of the axe is highly polished with a few patches of later damage. The Langdale greenstone…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small damaged possible polished flint axehead. The object is sub-rectangular in plan and pointed oval in section. The head of the axe flares to the cutting edge, which curves outwards. The cutting edge is damaged with c. 40 % remaining and there is also an abrupt transverse break across the butt end. There are scratches on the surface on both sides of the axehead. Invasive retouch can be seen on the surface on each side, along the edges and across the blade end. This may suggest that the axe was modified at some point and possibly reused. The flint is a mid-grey in colour with patche…
