This stone axehead was found during Prof V. Gordon Childe’s excavations in the 1920s at the late Neolithic (c.3200-2400 BC) settlement of Skara Brae, Orkney, Scotland. It is manufactured from Camptonite, an igneous dyke rock found across west Mainland, that was comonly used for stone tools. This artefact has been shaped by pecking and grinding and the blade edge has been re-ground and exhibits very clear striations.
This artefact is on display in the Skara Brae Visitor Centre, Sandwick, Orkney, Scotland.
