Full Description

Bronze axe lately found (c1837) in a moss in Tain parish near its boundary with Fearn. In possession of Mr Mackinlay of Tain Academy.
NSA 1845.

This axehead was catalogued as part of the North Kessock & District Local History Society and Archaeology for Communities in the Highlands (ARCH) collaborative 'Feats of Clay' Project, which was focused on Bronze Age metalworking around the Moray Firth. On the basis of the information available, and the lost status of the axehead, it was not possible to assign to more detailed dating within the Bronze Age. <1>
