ARCHAEOLOGICAL NOTES CAERWYS, BABELL POLISHED STONE AXE. Fig. 1. This was brought to my attention by Mr. Brian Roberts of Pentre Halkyn and was found by Mr. Gareth Jones, Marian Trefedwin, near Caerwys, while ploughing in a field near his farm (Flints. Sheet V. SE. Grid Ref. SJ140743). It is made of greenish-grey stone, both the butt and edge being broken as if it has been utilised later as a hammer. Its present length is 10.5 cm. and it reaches a maximum width of 6.9 cm. The form of the axe must have been very graceful, one side being slight- ly convex, the other straight. Its section is a regular oval. P. Hayes CAERWYS, BABELL SPINDLE WHORL. Fig. 2.
