Record ID: WILT-8E0680
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of Middle to Late Bronze Age (1450 - 900 BC) bronze socketed spearhead, consisting of part of the blade section. It measures 31.34x30.18x9.07mm and weighs 20.3g. The central rib is prominent and circular in section at the narrower end (7.69mm), while at the other (wider) break it has been flattened off on both sides. The blade is triangular in section to either side of the rib, narrowing from c.3.6mm thick to c.1.5mm at the edge. In shape, the fragment is triangular with very angled edges, suggesting an angular- or flame-shaped head.

Record ID: WILT-117235
Object type: RAPIER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Middle Bronze Age rapier fragment of Burgess and Gerloff Group IV (The Dirks and Rapiers of Great Britain and Ireland, Prähistorische Bronzefund IV 7). It measures 22.3x16.2x(max)3.8mm and weighs 7.20g. All breaks are ancient. The rapier has a broad flat mid-rib and much of the patina is lost. The surface is worn and pitted. Rapiers date to the Middle Bronze Age but fragments are often found in Late Bronze Age hoards, suggesting continued use.
