Bronze Age Palstave Found

Congleton Museum has been loaned a palstave which was found in the Priesty Fields area in 2016. A palstave is a type of Bronze age axe. It is another indication that pre-roman activity in the area was more extensive than originally thought.

It was brought into the museum by one of the finders Andy Turnock. It is currently in the small case within the World War II section next to the large case of loaned archaeological finds.
