Toomas finds axe head
« on: September 02, 2017, 09:39:00 PM »
My friend and forum member Toomas from Estonia found a very nice axe head on an island off Estonia, this is the message he sent me "27th of August was extremely nice day for me. I digged my first a bronze age axe head around 1700 BC from Muhu Island. Bronze age axe heads are very rare in Estonia. The axe head type in the picture is the oldest of the four axe head types in Estonia (in Scotland are five types). Around 10 have been found. In total along with the other three types around 40 have been found. From Island Muhu that is the first bronze age axe head. Over 100 years ago a bronze age spear head (Caucasian type, not local) was used in a household on Muhu Island. It was used as a knife. Its find- spot is unknown. The axe head found today is the first bronze age find that has a find-spot."

Very nice find and well done Toomas.
