Celt - Stone, metal, or other hard material shaped in the form of an ax or hatchet, but without the handle grooves.  Celts have been found weighing from half an ounce to twenty pounds.  Most were made from serpentine and other hard stones.  They were shaped by grinding.  They were used as axes, scrapers, skinning knives, meat cutters, and in some instances as weapons of war.
