PAS Review: week ended 2 July 2021
A round-up of some of the finds recorded at the PAS for the week ended 2 July 2021. There were 350 finds recorded in this week, including 5 Finds of Note.
Bronze Age Axehead
A late Bronze age (c. 1000 – 700 BC) axehead which still has a portion of wood within the socket. The retention of wood within is exceptionally rare, made possible by localised anaerobic conditions in a waterlogged setting. It is probably attributable to the Ewart Park Metalworking Industry, named after a hoard of metalwork found at Ewart Park, Northumberland.
It has been designated a Find of Note: County / local importance
