Parque Nacional del Este, Dominican Republic
Design:This hatchet is almost identicle in shape
and construction to z0014 however it's size is a bit smaller.
It has a knob at one end from which the shaft increases in diameter
until ending in a rounded point. The bored hole is near the larger end
and the hole's diameter is wider on one side as compared to the other.
It is thin in cross section and wide from the side. There is a bend
or slight curve from the head to the end. Similar to the other hatchet,
it is believed that at one time this hatchet contained a flaked cobble
through the hole which would have completed it's construction.
Size:Approximately 30cm in length
Condition:Good. A bit dry and light, but sturdy.
Color:Dark brown with areas of black and
