A broken polished stone axe retrieved as a redeposited item from a fill of a possible pond.
The butt end is missing and a flake has been removed from one face of the tip.
The raw material appears to be Cornish Greenstone. Cornish greenstone axes, as with other axes of stone and flint, were exchanged across much of Britain during the Neolithic period.
