Full Description

It is of the slender, facetted variety with a single moulding around the socket and measures 11.5 centimetres long by 4.9 centimetres across the blade. Facetted socketed axes can be dated to the developed period of the Late Bronze Age, 7th - 6th Centuries BC, from their association with other bronze work. [1]
