    It does look like a celt. They were a form of axe. The example at the top in this illustration shows how they were typically hafted to a wooden handle. It's a nice artifact to find.....

    I'm leaning towards a Celt as well, but we see some better pictures of the Blade edge please. Thank you.

    Thats cool was it your 1st find? If so there are many seasoned hunters out there that havent ever found one yet. Even though its damaged it would make for a nice frame and study piece looks like its made from Green Stone and a good polish but water polish. I have personally found 2 whole ones and many pieces of Celts, congrats
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.
