Post Medieval Iron Axe Head Group
Circa 16th-17th century AD. A group of two hand-wrought iron axe heads, each with hammered triangular socket to receive a shaft (one with fragment of wooden shaft preserved); the blades of broad and narrow form respectively with slightly convex cutting edges. Larger found London Bridge, River Thames foreshore, London; smaller found River Medway foreshore, Kent. Iron, 620 grams 160 mm; 440 grams, 160 mm. (6 1/2").
Very fine condition, slight loss to the larger axe's socket rim, conserved, rare thus.
