Record ID: WILT-4D06B3
Object type: SWORD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of Late Bronze Age (1150 to 800BC) probable sword hilt with flanged edges, measuring 22.63x18.34x(max)3.41mm and weighing 4.54g. The fragment is from close to either the terminal or where the hilt joins the shoulders, as a slot or rivet holes for fixing (which would be apparent along most of the hilt) are not immediately apparent. However the breaks at either end are very worn, and one has a slight change of depth, possibly indicating the top of a slot of rivet hole.

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of Late Bronze Age decorated spearhead socket (probably). The fragment is curving in profile and would have originally been c.23mm in diameter. It measures 17.4x13.6x1.7mm and weighs 2.04g. The fragment is decorated to the outwardly curving side only, with two bands of a pair of grooved lines. To the reverse the metal is not smooth, possibly through corrosion. The two longer edges are jagged and are clear breaks. However the two shorter edges both seem to be original, which would suggest the object is no a spearhead. Possibly, patination has ocurred over the break, as…
