Object type: RAZOR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Copper alloy probable Razor. Cast U-shaped plate with a cutting edge which runs along one long edge and continuing along the short straight side; the other long side and the U shaped end are flattened. The section is of extremely flattened lentoid form, a point which is only apparent if it is viewed against a straight edge.This object was initially considered as a sword blade fragment, but it lacks any convincing strengthening of the middle part of the blade, and a single sided form would be unusual for a rapier. This object appears to have been robustly cleaned by the finder. Suggest…

Object type: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wakefield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A late Bronze Age, cast copper alloy, socketed axehead, perhaps a Southern type, probably of the Ewart Park phase, dating from about 800 - 1000 BC. The axehead is wedge shaped with a sub-circular socket at the haft end that has a double mouth moulding running round it; a prominant bulbous moulding forming the rim, and a much less well defined lower collar. A lumpy area on the back of this rim may be the remains of a casting jet. The body is rectangular in section, tapering towards the cutting edge where it flares outwards towards the tips of a slightly curved blade. The sides of th…

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Opaque Buff Flint or Chert Barbed and Tanged Arrowhead, of form Sutton A. A rectangular tang is flanked by the slightly indented lower edge of the blade. There is overall invasive scalar retouch to one side, with much sparser working, except on the tang, on the other. The flint confers a slightly wavy profile. The heavy broad form is be apt to a hunting arrowhead intended to shear muscle and promote bleeding, weakening the prey and providing a trail for dogs to follow. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 41mm, Width: 25.2mm, Thickness: 5.9mm, Weight: 5.03gms

A fragment of a Middle to Late Bronze Age spearhead. The triangular piece represents the tip of what was probably a socketed spearhead.

A small body sherd from ceramic vessel of probable prehistoric date. The fabric has a dark grey core with abundant shell temper up to c. 7 mm in size. Externally the exterior wall is pale orange-red in colour while the internal wall is dark grey. There appears to be a thin linear indentation for decoration across the sherd. Several pieces of prehistoric pottery spanning the late Bronze Age to late Iron Age, of which this is one, were recovered from a small area around Brightwell Barrow in the 1920s. Probably late Bronze Age or early Iron Age in date (c. 1000 -401 BC).
