Replica Anlgo-Saxon Felling AxeYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
This replica of a Anglo-Saxon felling axe is based on examples found in Flixborough, Lincolshire and Nydam Mose, Denmark. Tool marks and material evidence for large saws used in Early Anglo-Saxon woodworking are none-existent, instead, it is believed shipbuilders used axes for felling trees and roughing out timbers. Felling axes remained mostly unchanged from Late Antiquity (3rd Century) until the Early Medieval period (7th Century). Other examples similar to this axe have been found in Denmark dating to the Saxon migration period (5th Century) as well as in Lincolshire (7th-8th Century) being made of beech or ash wood.
The burial ship is being reconstructed in The Longshed, Woodbridge, Suffolk, UK and is viewable by the public when work is taking place.
