Cold Kitchen Hill Romano-British Rural Temple
Temple Or Shrine
Quantities of pottery dating from the sixth and even the seventh century BC have been found on the site, together with a rare example of an iron socketed axe-head (IACiB, fig. 14:2.5). The socketed axe was prevalent throughout the Bronze-Age, and when iron was first introduced, the existing bronze weapon-types were simply copied in the new material. The socketed axe was not to prevail, however, and was replaced by more robust types which entirely enclosed the haft of the weapon.
