Axehead
Add to album

This bronze axehead was found at Bishop Kinkell near Conon Bridge in Ross-shire. It is an example of the most common form of flat bronze axehead from the Early Bronze Age, found throughout Scotland. It dates from between 2250 and 1900 BC.

As with most of the flat axeheads of this shape, it is without decoration.

Bronze Age axeheads were hafted in L-shaped pieces of wood. The short arm was split to hold the axehead which was then tied into position.
