Record ID: NMS108
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of spearhead, tip and edges very worn, surface pitted. The size and shape suggests this is the tip of a spear and not some larger weapon. It is probably of the Rapier Type, Class IVa.

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of probable spearhead. Diamond-shaped in section. Edges worn. Although the size suggests this is the tip of a spear and not some larger weapon, there is not enough of the object surviving to be certain. If a spearhead fragment, it is probably of the Rapier Type, Class IVa. It is unlikely to be the tip of a dagger or sword, though could just possibly be from a very narrow rapier (Type IV variant Stretham or Cornacarrow).

Record ID: NMS184
Object type: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Double mouth moulding, of which the upper is more prominent while the lower is little more than a low ridge (with loop right, it is almost imperceptible). The loop projects from the groove between the mouldings. Descending from the lower moulding are four raised ribs in two groups of two separated by a 10mm gap in the centre. The two outermost ribs follow a furrow which emphasises the edge of the rectangular-sectioned body, but which slightly curves. The two inner ribs follow the outer, curving behind it and then round it to join it at a point ¾ of the way down the body. These al…

Casting seem just visible down one side. Cutting edge and butt end worn and uneven. Axe is long and slim, slightly flaring out then in again towards the cutting edge.

Object type: DIRK
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Narrow dirk, c.230mm long and 10mm max width. Smooth and shiny browny-green patina with several large pitted holes in the surface. Point intact and sharp. The break is rough and therefore probably quite recent and pointed oval in section. It is unclear how long the dirk would have been as the narrowing towards the break could be just wear, though the narrowness suggests this was probably not a lot longer and therefore a dirk rather than a rapier.

Double mouth moulding, of which the upper is more prominent while the lower is little more than a low ridge which gives rise to a loop at the side of the body. Descending from the lower moulding are six raised ribs (1-6 respectively) in two groups of three separated by a 2-4mm gap in the centre. The two outermost ribs follow a furrow which emphasises the prominent edge of the rectangular-sectioned body. The two innermost ribs (3&4) fall steeply and then gently curve around the outer ribs (1&2 & 5&6) to join this prominent edge at a point ¾ of the way down the body. Thus the two pa…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Early Bronze Age short-flanged axe of Kirtomy type, with parallel and high flanges hammered or bent over on each side to contain the (no longer existent haft). Hammer marks are clearly visible. The blade is triangular with a slight curve outwards at the edge. Rounded butt, shallow stop and almost imperceptible on one side due to corrosion/ organic matter. Although surface corrosion and battered edge, still in fairly robust condition.

Double mouth moulding, of which the upper is more prominent while the lower gives rise to a loop at the side of the body. Descending from the lower moulding are (probably) four raised ribs in two groups of two separated by a 5mm gap in the centre. The two outermost ribs on either face seem to emphasise the angles of a rectangular-sectioned body but are not obviously there as 1 & 2 are (possibly as they are obscured by corrosion, or because the metal itself seems to have expanded and obscured the ribs). With the loop to the left, the two inner ribs fall steeply and close together sudd…
