Record ID: WILT-5D7742
Object type: CHISEL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Late Bronze Age (1150-800 BC) tanged chisel, measuring 89.79mm in length and weighing 28.6g. The tang measures 7.34x7.13mm where it joins the body of the chisel, and narrows and thins to 5.83x1.85mm at the other end. Casting flashes are visible and worn down where it joins the collar. The collar is a square-ish circle in cross-section (11.46x10.65mm), with the concave sides of the blade below extending from it and flaring to an expanded curved cutting edge 19.64mm wide.

County: Hampshire

An incomplete Middle to Late Bronze Age (1450 - 900 BC) bronze socketed spearhead, missing its socket end and its tip. The edges are very damaged, some ancient and some recent (plough). It measures 83.50mm in length and weighs 36.05g. The spearhead is max.20.73x10.62mm and min.13.42x7.08mm at either end. In cross-section, the central rib is diamond-shaped with the c.2mm thick blade extending from opposing points. At both breaks, the central rib is solid, suggesting the spearhead would have originally been quite long. It is uncertain if any part of the edge is original (ie.not damage…

An Early Bronze Age (2150 BC - 1500 BC) polished knife, measuring 98.53mm in length and weighing 35.07g. It is 34.45mm in maximum width at the centre, narrowing at either end to a rounded point at the distal (3.44mm thick) and 15.57mm wide blunt at the proximal. The left dorsal edge has polishing at the mesial point, c.12.5mm in length. Above and below the edge has been pressure-flaked with large-ish flakes. The dorsal distal end has smaller, steeper pressure-flaking, continuing onto the top right dorsal edge. Below is another area of polished edge, 26mm long. This is interrupted at…

Object type: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of Late Bronze Age (900-800 BC) bronze socketed axehead, consisting of part of the mouth and body. It measures 22.98x24.81x(max)4.66mm and weighs 8.6g. Just below the mouth, which appears to be quite circular in shape, is a single-rib moulding (max.thickness). The fragment below the moulding consists of part of one face and part of one side. The fragment suggests the axehead is of the Ewart Park phase, 900-800 BC.

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of Early (or Middle) Bronze Age bronze flanged axehead (or possibly palstave axehead although the flanges are a bit low), consisting of the damaged butt end only. It measures 24.43x(max)26.86x(max)8.77mm and weighs 25.15g. The damaged butt end appears to be complete at one corner and broken at the other. Just off centre is a bubble in the metalwork, possibly contributing to the break by weakening the metal. The break at the other end of the fragment is I-shaped in section, just as the flanges are beginning to develop. The fragment is too small with not enough surviving o…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of Late Bronze Age bronze socketed axehead, consisting of part of the mouth and body below. It measures 30.64x36.07x4.28mm and weighs 19.8g. The mouth (6.60mm thick) has single moulding and has a rib below from which extends at least three vertical ribs before the (old) breaks. Between mouth and rib moulding is a blob of metal from the casting process. The diameter of the socketed opening would have been c.45mm. Axes with rib decoration date to the Ewart Park and Llynfawr phases, 900-700 BC.

Object type: SWORD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Possible fragment of Late Bronze Age sword of the Carps Tongue type. In section this fragment has a prominent mid-rib 5.4mm thick and c.10mm wide. One side of this is missing (probably recent damage). On the other side the blade extends c.11mm, thickening after it narrows either side of the mid-rib, then thinning towards the blade edge which is missing its bevelled edge, also due to recent damage. The metal is dark green in colour and has a rough feel. The fragment measures 26.7mm wide (probably originally c.38-40mm wide), is 20.1mm in length and max5.4mm thick. It weighs 7.01g. …

Record ID: WILT-8F8186
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Unidentified copper alloy/ bronze object, oval in shape with a crescentic cut at one end. It measures 49.6x40x7.3mm and weighs 48.13g. The surfaces are bumpy and all original patina has been lost. The metal is a rich orangey brown in colour, not dissimilar to the colour of some Bronze Age metal work. Where this brown has been worn away the metal beneath is bluey green. The crescentic cut seems intentional and appears to have a smooth, worn edge.

County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of Late Bronze Age copper alloy socketed axehead, consisting of part of the rim and side of the axe, including the loop. The breaks are quite jagged; probably not ancient. The axe has a double mouth moulding, the upper of which is far more prominent. The lower appears (on this fragment) to be a continuation of the line where the loop meets the body of the axe. The casting seam is visible but not jagged. It stands less than 0.5mm high. The patina is smooth and green. 35x32x2mm. Weighs 23.96g.
