Axehead
Add to album

This bronze axehead was found at Skibo in Sutherland. It dates from between 2250 and 1900 BC.

The axehead is quite pitted from corrosion.

A large number of bronze axeheads dating to the Early Bronze Age have been found. Some were clearly everyday objects, used to chop trees and other woodwork. Other were prestige objects, and must have been symbols of power.
