Object type certainty: Possibly
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Copper alloy possible Palstave Axe fragment. Cast fragment from the angular edge of a hollow cast object with its sides meeting each other at right angles, of overall L section. The object appears to have tapered, and the extent of bubbled material on its inside surface increases as its sides converge. The outer surface bears patches of tarry material, possibly sooting, which carry across one fracture surface and appears as a small spot on the inner surface. Suggested date: possibly Middle Bronze Age, 1601-1000 BC.

Length: 40.4mm, Width: 17.6mm, Thickness: 4.4mm, Weight: 15.56gms.
