Record ID: WILT-846EE0
Object type: CHISEL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete Late Bronze Age chisel, dating to the Ewart Park phase, c.900-750 BC. It is 121mm in length, 68mm of which is a rectangular-sectioned tang, 7x8mm at its base and narrowing to a flat 1x4mm at the pointed end. The tang extends from a lip that projects outwards at 90° and measures c.17x18mm. On its other side, a more rounded rectangular-sectioned projection (10x7mm) widens after 15mm to become a thicker (8mm) expanding bell-shaped chisel-end. Where it widens, the top edge is curved, as in the curved top of a bell. The cutting edge is curved and expanded (30mm wide from 25mm just…

Incomplete early Late Bronze Age tanged knife, consisting of part of the blade and tang, and broken across a rivet hole. The sides of the tang are ?hammered up ever so slightly. The blade is badly damaged along the edges which looks quite recent. However the break across the tang looks old. The length of the incomplete knife is 71mm. The tang is 17.5mm wide, expanding into small shoulders above the blade, which at this point is 20mm wide. Over 57mm this narrows to 11.5mm wide. The patina is dark brown and shiny and only slightly pitted. The knife has a broad mid-rib which expands into …

County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete Middle Bronze Age side-looped spearhead of Greenwell & Brewis Class IV, with badly damaged blades and coated recently in preservative, giving the spearhead a very shiny appearance. The socket is 17mm in diameter (internal 14mm) with a mid-rib equidistant between the casting seams on both sides. This extends the length of the spearhead. The socket narrows over 56mm to 8x8mm just below the wings, where it is square in section. The loops are slightly lop-sided and roughly two thirds between socket end and wings, nearer to the latter. They are oval in section, looping out and in a…

Object type: AWL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Bronze Age awl, 47mm in length and weighing 2.70g. One end is pointed and square in section (2x2mm), widening to a point c.25mm from the pointed and to 5mm wide and 2mm thick. From here to the end, the awl thins to 0.5mm whilst widening to 8.5mm. This end is slightly bent and just below where it begins to thin, small flanges are visible, presumably created by the shape of the tool working the awl. The patina is heavily pitted and very dark brown. Although awls are common in the Bronze Age, it is thought some date to the Roman period.

County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Middle Bronze Age low-flanged, broad-bladed palstave axehead with Trident decoration. There is a small area of recent-ish damage to the butt end. The blade is roughly trinagular in shape with a splayed cutting edge. This is also slightly damaged but otherwise in good condition. A mid-rib extends for about half the length of the blade from beneath the stop. This, with the shield decoration that extends from the flanges, creates the trident decoration. On one face the shield is rather more triangular than the other. At the sides of the exahead the flanges has been smoothed down and a cur…

Incomplete Middle Bronze Age side-looped spearhead of Greenwell & Brewis' Class IV, consisting of the socket, loops and lower part of the blade only. The socket-end has been widened and the metal here is rather thin - 0.5mm with a 20mm diameter compared with 2mm thick and a 17mm diameter 6mm above. c.14mm from the socket end the section of the socket becomes a square-on-its-points. This continues into the blade, where it becomes the mid-rib, and to the break. The loops are placed about two thirds of the distance from the socket to the bottom of the blade, nearer to the blade. The loops…

Fragment of Middle Bronze Age rapier, consisting of the damaged butt end and part of the blade. It has a pronounced midrib extending from just below the rivet holes, and very worn but bevelled edges.

County: Swindon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of Late Bronze Age socketed axehead or chisel, consisting of (probably) most of the cutting edge - it is broken (oldish) across one end of this. The width of the cutting edge as it is, is 25mm. It survives to a height of 16.5mm, probably just at the base of the socket. At this point it is its maximum thickness, at 8mm. The patina is smooth, shiny and apparantly intact. It is dark green in colour. The cutting edge is intact. Weighs 10.01g. There are some tooling marks visible on both faces. The object has relatively straight sides.

Object type: RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unusual and incomplete ring of unknown date. It is made of a light material, probably bone or antler, or possibly shale as it is very dark in colour. The ring is D-shaped in section, being flat inside. The outside edge has been worked to give diagonal ribs extending from one edge to the other. Approximately half the ring has a layer consisting of over half the depth of the ring, 'shaved' off it. The structure below this is similar to bone. It is 28.5mm in diameter (internal 16.5mm), 8.5mm thick and weighs 2.12g. Because of the slightly crude workmanship and choice of material, a pre…

Fragment of ??Bronze Age copper alloy object, consisting of one face and part of a side at 90° to it. This edge is triangular in shape, its edges or ?'breaks' a rather clean break. At the opposite side of the face the metal is bent slightly backwards as though this break is where another side extended. This would give a width of 28mm across the front and a give the object a socketed function. No patina remains and the metal is a light green in colour with much black covering the surface, ?sooting. Although the metal does not necessarily have a Bronze Age quality to it, the shape is in…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mouth fragment of a Late Bronze Age socketed axehead, consisting of perhaps a quarter of the mouth moulding (triangular in section) and part of the body extending below. Its estimated original diameter is c.36mm. The surviving fragment measures 30.5x18x5mm and weighs 11.45g. It is worn and all breaks are old. A worn but prominent casting seam is also visible. It is probably not part of WILT-5A37F2, found on the same day, as the metal of this find is a brighter green in colour.

Body fragment of a Late Bronze Age socketed axehead, consisting of part of the face and the side (which joins the body at a 90° angle). All breaks are ancient and it appears the side break has occurred along the casting seam - part of the ?seam survives towards the top of the axe fragment (it could also be part of the side-loop). On the face there is a vertical rib decoration. Measures 26x20.5x4mm and weighs 14.02g. This find is probably not part of WILT-5A6FE0, found on the same day, as the metal is a much darker green in colour.

Solid copper alloy slightly squashed or oval ?bracelet. It measures 71.5x63mm and weighs 50.18g. It is roughly circular in section varying from 6-7mm in thickness, and where the bracelet appears less than circular there are patches of filing. The internal measurements are 59x49mm. If a bracelet it is rather small. However it could be a harness link, pulled horizontally out of shape - or perhaps designed this way. It could be Bronze Age or Iron Age in date.

Fragment of Middle Bronze Age Transitional Palstave axehead, broken across the main body of the axe (ancient break) and also across one corner of the cutting edge (more recent break). It is probably of Type Roundhay, mid-ribbed variant : the cutting edge has been moderately expanded and at the ancient break the body is narrow (20mm wide). The mid-rib is 5mm wide at the break and continues over 40mm at the same width on both faces. The fragment is 61mm in length and the surviving cutting edge is 38mm wide.
