axehead (axehead)


This axe is made from Greenstone found in Cornwall. We do not know whether this stone was quarried or collected as beach pebbles. Stone axes were a vital tool for the first farmers but they must have had a value beyond the purely practical.

This object is on display at RAMM in the Making History gallery.
