Full description

1973. Stray Find.
Neolithic/Bronze Age stone axe hammer. See drawing (S1).
Details from King's Lynn Museum.
Information from (S2) and annotations on (S1).
It should be noted that both (S2) and (S3) incorrectly describe this object as a 'stone axe'. This is a result of confusion with the object recorded as NHER 3629. The provenance of this object was also originally incorrectly recorded on (S2) as West Rudhum. This is therefore probably the axe hammer listed with this provenance in (S4).
Amended by P. Watkins (HES), 7 June 2018.

Marked on (S5) as a 'Bronze Age stone axe-hammer'.
E. Rose (NAU) 30 January 1981. Information from (S6).
