Full Description

A Neolithic polished stone axe was found in 1934, on land to the north of Broxholme. The artefact was donated to Lincoln Museum. {1}{2}{3} The artefact was thin-sectioned and thought to be of group VI coarse type. Cummins and Moore make reference to a second thin-sectioned axe of group VI medium type, from the same location at Broxholme. No further references to a possible second axehead are known, however, and this may reflect an error in their gazetteer. {4}
