Full description

Found before 1937. Bronze palstave.
NCM card says 'drawn' but not in parish file; copy (S1) now in our file. E. Rose (NAU).
Unlooped palstave in British Museum is very probably the same object, as other items from [1]'s collection seem to have been aquired by [2] (see NHER 4869) and no other Bronze Age tools from Holt are recorded.
E. Rose (NAU), 16 July 1980.

See details of British Museum palstave in file. E. Rose (NAU).
