I am guessing that the mushrooming on the back of that axe indicates that it was used for driving iron wedges when splitting wood. That is the only thing that ever caused that in my family's axes. And if the temper was anything like a modern axe it was used a lot for that. The stone artifacts are interesting to see. Over the decades I have come across a few Indian stone tools and a bunch of pottery fragments. When I pick up a potsherd I do sometimes stop and think about what the life of the man or woman who dropped in must have been like,

Notice how the edge is less pitted than the rest of the head.
A more tempered and harder area.
