This dark grey polished stone axe head was found in a garden in Brook Street, Tavistock. The stone is 130mm in overall length, has a maximum width of 57.5mm, a thickness of 32mm and weighs 375g. The stone is highly polished over all but retains a shallow flaw in one side that was too deep to be polished out. The sharpened end of the stone has been damaged and a 25 x 15mm flake is missing.
