Boat Axe

added by

A special type of stone battle-axe found in eastern Scandinavia in the late Neolithic, so named because it resembles a simple boat with upturned ends. The term ‘Boat-axe culture’ is sometimes used for the east Scandinavian variant of the single grave or corded ware culture in which these axes occur.
