Record ID: PAS-8B52C6
Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy object of Bronze Age date: probably a small tanged knife dating from the Late Bronze Age (c. 1000-850 BC). The object now has a sub-trapezoidal form, being rounded at the blade tip, and tapering gradually towards it. At the attachment end the object becomes waisted and narrowed, indicative of a tanged handle. However, all of the sides of the artefact are abraded, with a number of significant notched removals. In cross-section the object is the shape of a very flat pointed oval. The surface is pitted on both surfaces. The object measures 60.4 by 20.1 by 2.6mm and…

Record ID: PAS-9C1225
Object type: SWORD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper-alloy blade probably from a sword of Late Bronze Age date. The fragment is pointed oval in cross-section with smooth curve on both surfaces and no discernible mid rib. There are old patinated breaks at each end and down each side, obscuring the original shape. However, in one corner the fragment does appear to flare out slightly, though this may be illusory; the width is generally consistent. It is 28.05mm long, 20.7mm wide,3.7mm thick. It weighs 10.37grams. The surfaces are slightly corroded.

Object type: BEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire

A probable Middle Bronze Age (c.1500-1100 BC) solid gold bead of annular form and biconical profile with a central perforation measuring 2.9mm in diameter. It is max.7.6mm in diameter at the centre, narrowing to c.5mm diameter at either end, both of which show areas of damage. The bead stands 5.3mm in height and weighs 1.91g. The bead is of similar form to several of sheet gold reported through the Treasure Act, namely HAMP-72E451 (2011 T526),GLO-46CA05 (2014 T358) and NMS-AEC678 (2013 T20), for the latter of which is written 'The gold bead is likely to date to the Middle Bronze A…

Object type: HAMMER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Description: Late Bronze Age socketed hammer, broadly sub-rectangular with slightly convex faces and a square socket. The top and bottom face angle slightly together towards the striking surface giving the sides of the hammer a trapezoid shape. The striking surface is also convex curved giving rounded ends to the sides of the hammer. There is a wide, plain thickened collar at the socket end of the hammer adjacent to the rim; the corners of this are rounded giving a sub-square outer edge to the rim. There is no clear evidence for a loop, although on side is corroded and could potential…

Object type: CHISEL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Middle to Late Bronze Age cast copper-alloy chisel. Such chisels are generally thought to be wood working tools. It has a rectangular sectioned tang with a thinned and rounded end; the other end widens and flattened into the blade which ends with a fairly shallow curve and slightly abraded at the corners. The blade is also thinned compared to the central section which is the widest point. There is no evidence of a stop ridge or side lugs. The object has a fairly even dark-brown patina with some slight pitting.

Record ID: SOM-0F85D7
Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late Middle Bronze Age/early Late Bronze Age cast copper-alloy palstave (axehead) of unlooped type. The palstave is corroded and pitted. There is not much difference in width between septum and blade; the particular narrowness of the blade suggests an ancillary use as a chisel. The low flanges are abraded but gradually widen from the butt to the mid point, narrowing again towards the stop ridge with which they are fused, creating an elongated oval shape in profile. Just beyond the stop ridge are pronounced lateral protrusions; such lugs or 'trunnions' are known on chisels, but also …

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Middle Bronze Age cast copper-alloy palstave (axehead) of unlooped type .The palstave is corroded, with some losses at its extremities. The septum is thinner than the blade suggesting that this is a palstave rather than an earlier flanged axe (Schmidt and Burgess 1981, 115). The flanges gradually widen from the butt to the stop, creating a triangular shape in profile. The stop is angled forwards slightly at its centre. The blade is rectangular in cross-section with shallowly curved sides that widen gradually towards the cutting edge before curving out more approaching the cuttin…
