Description

This iron adze was found at a site in Prince George County on the Coastal Plain. It was a woodworking tool that was hafted to a wooden handle, and was traded to Virginian Indians by colonists. Virginia Indians manufactured and used tools made from traditional materials alongside those that they obtained from Europeans. European iron agricultural tools were one type of trade item exchanged by Virginia Indians and colonists during the seventeenth century.
