An incomplete and shortened copper alloy Middle Bronze Age (1500-1300 BC) Group II dirk, missing its tip. It measures 45.42x12.86x1.72mm and weighs 3.19g. The blade is triangular in shape and lenticular in cross-section, with a broad flat midrib. It extends from a flat D-shaped butt-end (1.20mm thick and 12.96mm wide) with a crescentic notch to either side - the result of worn-through rivet holes. The butt-end also has a slight crescentic notch, but it is uncertain whether this is intentional or damage. The blade narrows from 10.90x1.55mm to 4.63x1.12mm just before the broken tip …

A blade fragment of Middle/ Late Bronze Age (1300-900 BC) copper alloy dagger, consisting of part of the blade just below the shoulders. It measures 46.51x26.45x2.67mm and weighs 12.02g.

The narrower end is lozenge-shaped at the break, the wider end also but much more shallowly. Both breaks are oldish but still quite jag…
