More About this Item

Description: North America, Eastern Native American, Woodland Period, ca. 1000 BCE to 1000 CE. A trio of stone hand axes, made from smoothed river cobbles, one brownish, one blackish, and the largest greenish. Each tool has a wider, rounder butt tapering to a smoothed edge. These are woodworking tools, made to function like a modern steel axe. These are distinguishable from earlier period axes because of their rounded, smooth butts - rather than being lashed to wooden handles, archaeologists believe that they were made to be slotted in and then attached in some way that did not require a groove. Size: 5.65" L x 2.35" W (14.4 cm x 6 cm)

Provenance: ex-Old East Coast Collection
