An incomplete and shortened copper alloy Middle Bronze Age (1500-1300 BC) Group II dirk, missing its tip. It measures 45.42x12.86x1.72mm and weighs 3.19g. The blade is triangular in shape and lenticular in cross-section, with a broad flat midrib. It extends from a flat D-shaped butt-end (1.20mm thick and 12.96mm wide) with a crescentic notch to either side - the result of worn-through rivet holes. The butt-end also has a slight crescentic notch, but it is uncertain whether this is intentional or damage. The blade narrows from 10.90x1.55mm to 4.63x1.12mm just before the broken tip …

It is oval in cross section (6.67x6.45mm at the centre), narrowing a little to the terminals (6.21x5.47mm and 6.14x5.55mm). Copper alloy concretion partially covers the surface and has leached from the copper alloy core. The gold plating is rather worn but decorative banding is just visible, slightly raised from the surface.

A Bronze Age (2150 BC - 800 BC) bronze awl, measuring 47.27mm in length and weighing 4.70g. The centre of the awl, which rectangular in cross-section, measures 4.21x4.33mm. From the centre to the point the awl becomes circular in cross-section and bulges (5.66mm) and narrows (c.2mm) to the point. In the other direction from the centre, the awl has parallel sides but thins, to 0.98mm. The awl retains traces of a dark shiny patina, but otherwise the metal is green and pitted.

It measures 30.45x18.20x(max)7.24mm and weighs 11.46g. The cutting edge is expanded and worn but apparently undamaged. Both faces are pitted and the shorter looks 'caved in' at the edge - conducive with a hammer blow. All breaks are old. The socket is rectangular in cross-section, and the fragment itself triangular in cross-section. While the axehead is rather small, it is difficult to say whether or not it is 'votive'. It m…

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.

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.
