A fragment of Middle Bronze Age (1500-1150 BC) copper alloy Rapier with a broad flat mid-rib, consisting of part of the blade just beow the shoulders. It measures 28.44x13.62x4.21mm and weighs 4.80g. The wider end of the fragment (13.62mm) is also much flatter, 1.90mm, and presumably extended from the shoulders. The narrower end, 9.79x4.21mm, is lozenge-shaped at the break. Both breaks are ancient.

An incomplete Late Bronze Age (1150-800 BC) copper alloy socketed axehead, measuring 77.4x41.4x16.7mm and weighing 127.16g. It is uncertain if the existing, hammered, socketed end is the original mouth of the axehead. If it is, then only half of one face is missing, as well as the loop. The break is old horizontally. but one of the verticals seems recent damage. The socket is 49.4mm deep to the top (socketed) edge of the axe. The sides of the axehead flare gently from the mouth to the expanded cutting edge, 41.4mm wide and 1.6mm thick at the edge. Although slightly chipped, the cutt…

A fragment of probably Late Bronze Age (1150-800 BC) copper alloy cutting edge from a tool. It measures 21.11x7.71x4.48mm and weighs 2.5g. The fragment is triangular in cross-section and broken at one end, and above (old break). It narrows to 0.90mm at the end of the cutting edge. The metal is a light green in colour and the intact end suggests the cutting edge may have been hammered out a little.

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.

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…

Fragment of Late Bronze Age (1150 – 800 BC) bronze Socketed Axehead, consisting of part of the mouth with loop extending below and the body between. It measures 44.52x16.12x15.78mm and weighs 14.27g. The fragment is rather twisted in appearance, possibly as the result of intense heat. The mouth (6.25mm thick) has a prominent moulding from which the top of the loop extends. The inside edge of the loop seems to extend into another moulding below. However as so little of the body survives at this point it is difficult to be certain. The casting flash on both inside and outside edg…

A Middle/ Late Bronze Age (1500 BC - 800 BC) tanged chisel measuring 51.10mm in length and weighing 11.50g. The chisel has a spatulate terminal (chiselling end), 21.66mm wide and 0.95mm thick, which tapers and thickens into a rectangular-section tang and rounded, pointed tang-end (1.5mm diameter). At the centre-point, where the tang is thickest, it measures 3.94mm thick. The chiselling end is bent at one corner. One face of the chisel has its edges hammered-up slightly, creating a thickening towards the edges.

Bronze Age (2150 - 800 BC) bronze awl, measuring 54.90mm in length and weighing 4.3g. The tang-end is bent upwards slightly. The centre of the awl, which is the thickest part and rectangular in section, measures 4.59x3.89mm. From the centre to the point the awl narrows and becomes circular in section. In the other direction from the centre, the awl narrows is thickness and a little in width to 2.94x0.61mm. The surface of the awl on this half does seem to have been chiselled away to make it thinner.

County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable Late Bronze Age (1100 BC - 800 BC) fragment of casting sprue, weighing 6.3g. It is oval in cross-section and measures 15.34x10.95 at the wider end, which has a rough surface. The sprue narrows over 14.97mm to an old break 8.64x3.82mm. The sprue forms in the channels of the mould through which molten metal is poured in the process of casting, and which subsequently hardens and is removed. Although the colour of the metal suggests a Bronze Age date, it could conceivably date later.
