Full Description

PRN40300 [Record PRN40301 was created by mistake because of the errors in the ordnance survey cards and the original SMR cards. This record has now been deleted and is incorporated in this record.] A small polished axehead was found here and is now in the City and County Museum, accession no.95.35. Mr Brader, a local farmer, made this find while ploughing in 1927. He has now left the district, and was not able to be traced. A local resident could recall the find being made, and verified the published findspot.{1}{2} Two polished stone axeheads from Hatton were entered into the ordnance survey records in 1962 using information provided by staff at City and County Museum, Lincoln (OS cards TF17NE:7 and TF17NE:8). Later additions to these ordnance survey records in 1964 confused these two axeheads probably because of a grid reference error in the original entry. By reference back to the original entries in the City and County Museum Accessions’ Register it has been possible to disentangle these two axeheads and this current record is a corrected version of the axehead record TF17NE:8. See also PRN40299 for the second axehead. {3}
