Question Excavated Battleaxe with Integral Langets

I believe that this was made as a battleaxe on the basis that the blade seems too thin for a wood working tool (2.9 mm at 1 cm from edge, 3.95 mm where 'beard' of blade expands and 11.6 mm at neck nearest haft). The ruler in the photos is in inches and in its present state the object weighs 807 grams.

Any idea of a more specific region of origin than Europe and what century this is most suggestive of are welcomed.
