cot b:
What the period of time these axe belong to ??? It possible can be trepolyan culture from ukraine...

pierre_p77:
This type of axe was common during the bronze age. They are very frequent in Scandinavia during the period ca 1000-500 BC, but I suppose they have a wider geographical spread.

I'm glad someone could bring some information on these -- I have one almost exactly the same as cot b that I bought in York in 1993.  The socket seems very impractical for use as an axe, while the loop seems very practical for stringing several together (votive objects, ceremonial gifts?).  I passed on one made of tin (to my eternal regret).  Cheers, George Spradling

cot b:
 :-\ Can it be older? Something like 2000-3000 BC? It is from Ukraine,from Bucovina region. I dig it at about 3 monthago 8)

I´ve just learned that in Britain this type of axe is called socketed axe and dates to ca 1000-800 BC.
