Tyne and Wear HER(728): Marden, polished axe - Details
Marden, polished axe
Tools and Equipment
A small polished stone axe-head, with a narrow butt, "was found in 1961 in digging a back garden at 19 Barrington Avenue, Marden, Tynemouth...and remained in private possession. It was 120 mm in length and 57 mm in maximum breadth." Hand examination (by George Jobey) suggested that it was a Langdale product and had been reworked.
