The Seaford Axe Hoard





Another book from the prolific writer. Rodney Castleden, who is a member of Seaford Museum where he spends many hours researching his material.

This is the fascinating story of the discovery and rediscovery of a unique prehistoric stone axe hoard. The 15 flint axes were found in 1986, but then forgotten and only displayed as a hoard in 2014, when their national importance was recognized. Hoards like this are very rare. Where were the axes made? By a remarkable coincidence, the factory where they were manufactured was also discovered in 2014, very close at hand. Neolithic Seaford is re-created in new maps. From all the evidence it is possible to reconstruct what it was like to live in Sussex five thousand years ago.
