Type and Period (1)
Socketed axe from Outney Common, Bungay picked up on the site of an ancient ford over the Waveney on the mud left on the river side by a dredger ... Considering this axe head may have lain in the river here for about 3000 years it is in a remarkably good state of preservation, with well-marked longitudinal ornamentation on the sides, and the usual loop for holding the thongs that once attached it to its now perished wooden handle (S1).
