This is a find from just before lockdown. Could this be a fragment of a bronze age axe head or am I making a fool of myself?
I have contacted my FLO. Who says it looks interesting . Came up from a field literally just in front of my house when I took my new Nox 8oo out for one of its first outings. The first outing produced a hammered Edward penny . Since using the Nox my find rate have gone up exponentially ,what a machine. Can anyone help with ID. ?

Yours is a palstave axe, solid cast

Reiver’s is part of a socketed axe, they are hollow cast, very often find parts of them as they are not as robust as a palstave

Found similar myself and recorded as such :thumbsup:

Wow ! Now that's what you call an axe head, makes my fragment look a bit sorry for itself. Thanks for the input. :thumbsup:
