Description

These chipped stone axes date to the Middle to Late Woodland period. They were found on a site in Henrico County in the eastern Piedmont. The axes would have been hafted to wooden handles, which decomposed over time. Archaeologists can use microscopes to see use-wear patterns on the edges of stone axes to tell what they were used for.
