        Thanks Ben, It is an interesting find. The one foot stick with a two inch head is just as interesting as the coffin. I have to wonder why they are calling that an axe.

            That is neat. I wonder if the axe head is stone or bronze?

            The preservation of the handle is spectacular. Probably a very low oxygen pond, the Windover Bog site here in Florida has preserved brain tissues, bone, woven cloth, etc.

                Seriously can someone tell me why they call that little thing an axe? It looks more like a toy than an axe.

                  I cant answer that Ron....i assume the "axe" is about 12 inches in length....maybe an ancient croquet mallet for a 3 yr old

                I'm less certain about the UK, but on mainland Europe a lot of the Bronze Age groups still made decorative stone axes that are commonly found in burials.

                Boat axes or Boat style battle axes are an example, many have surprising small hafting holes so I'm unsure how useful they would have been. The gouges are knapped and polished from flint. Some slightly later Bronze Age groups made the classic danish daggers that are a copy of Bronze Age knives.

                I know yours are European, but I was really wanted to show the one I have. I hope I'm not out of line?

                  Thanks Benji. The article was good reading.
                  Yes the pieces that will be discovered is cool to think about

                I cannot believe no one else figured this out…it wasn’t an axe. Nor was it a toy.
                My friends, the man was found in a golf course pond. He was clearly golfing, likely retrieving his ball when he met his untimely demise.
                Gentlemen and women, what we have here is the first known golf club. A 3 iron I assume.

                I thought perhaps it was a war club to fight off the evil spirits.
