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.

Late Bronze Age or Early-Mid Iron Age fragment of segmented bracelet. It is complete in itself and consists of four joined hollow arcs, individually C-shaped in profile. The end two have a C shape cut into it with bevelled edges, supporting the abutting of a similar segment on either side. One of the middle arcs has a hole in it where the metal is rather thin (recent-ish damage). The metal is thicker on the underside (3mm). On both outer arcs are two c.2.5mm diameter piercings, one of either end of the arc. Presumably these are to secure the attachment of the other segments. The …
