A small looped and socketed bronze axe, with flared blade, was found with a metal detector in August 1996 on the easement of the new A50 bypass (grid ref given as SK 11653470). Its characteristic plain 'bag-shape' is said to be of Irish type. It was taken to Stoke-on-Trent City Museum & Art Gallery for identification where it was photographed but not retained. (1)
