Bronze Age (2150 BC - 800 BC) bronze awl, measuring 34.04mm in length and weighing 2.13g. One end (c.9mm in length) is pointed and polished and circular in section (max.4.37mm diameter narrowing to a point). Behind this the shank is square in section 4.27x4.41mm narrowing to the opposite end of the awl, 2.03x1.17mm. The shank has a blue hue while the polished point is rather more brown. The polishing is possibly due to heavy wear.

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete Middle Bronze Age to Early Iron Age bronze 'half-moustache'-like object with damage at both ends. It measures 36.24x9.87x9.84mm and weighs 10.74g. The object resembles half a moustache and consists of one solid pointed drop-shape. It is uncertain if it was originally a single half (as these are known) or one half of an original whole which would have been joined to the second half by a (probably perforated) central area. At the wider end (9.87x9.84mm) the jagged (old) break stands 3.6mm proud of the solid object, suggesting the end would have been hollow, perhaps for …

A fragment of Late Bronze Age (900-800 BC) bronze socketed axehead, consisting of part of the mouth and body. It measures 27.79x33.89x(max)8.29mm and weighs c.20g. The mouth has a double-rib moulding, with the top-most rib being much thicker. A casting flash is just visible in the furrow between. The mouth appears to be quite circular in shape. The fragment suggests the axehead is of the Ewart Park phase, 900-800 BC.

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…

Late Bronze Age - Roman tiny, and now bent, copper alloy tanged chisel or possibly Roman stylus, 49.81mm in bent length and weighing 4.51g. It would originally have been c.51mm long. The tanged (or writing end if stylus), narrower end is 2.18mm wide and 1.19mm thick. This thickens and widens to 7.13mm wide and 3.51mm thick, just above the cutting edge (or possible rubbing-out edge if stylus). It continues to widen but also narrows to this edge over c.7mm, which is 8.73mm wide and 1.13mm thick. The cutting/ rubbing-out edge is damaged (oldish) but would not have been longer/ wider.

Incomplete Late Bronze Age tanged knife, bent in two places and damaged around the tang. It weighs 16.81g. The rounded point of the knife is apparantly intact, 8mm wide. It widens, one side being straighter than the other (which has a slight curve) over c.120mm (un-bent). It narrows at the tang to 17.4mm wide (from max.width 19.4mm), and probably further beyond this but edge damage prevents an accurate measurment. At this point is a piercing 5.3mm in diameter, clearly pushed through from one side - it shows on the other with a jagged edge. The knife has a central mid-rib on one s…
