Description

Polished adze fragment. Broken off at center with cutting edge intact. Light gray stone with dark surface which has been partially removed through abrasion. Although 2289 is only a fragment it is clearly typical of polished adzes which have been found throughout Japan and of the Early Jomon Period onward. It is one of nine polished adzes in the collection, namely 2290, 13144, 13145, 13146, 13147, 13152, 13153, 13154 and 13155.
