Early Bronze age c.2000-1700 B.C. A good and rare Early Bronze Age bronze flat axe with splayed semi-circular shaped blade found in Yorkshire many years ago and from an old established U.K. collection. The axe is broadly rectangular widening towards blade end with an expanded and splayed semi-circular cutting edge and the butt end thinned and with a rounded end. The axe would have been hafted into a wooden handle for use and fastened firmly using animal hide strips or sinew. Some old light pitting to surfaces (not detracting) as excavated, otherwise totally intact and in very good overall condition, of good sound metal with a pleasant shiny green surface patination, a very nice and appealing example of this very early bronze axe, 114mm long x 57mm wide x 9mm thick.
