Record ID: SUSS-FF3A89
Object type: SWORD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a Bronze Age, copper alloy, sword blade, 1500-800 BC. The fragment comprises a slightly tapering rectangle of copper alloy. It is a flattened pointed oval in cross section. The surface is pitted and corroded and has an even green patina. There is no sign of a central rib. The piece could be a fragment of a Bronze Age rapier, representing the sword blade just below the tip. The size and condition of the fragment make further identification difficult.

Object type: PENANNULAR RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete, copper cored, gold, Bronze Age, penannular ring, 1800-1000BC. The ring is is penannular with a small gap between the terminals, which are flat. The ring is circular in cross section. There is substantial copper alloy corrosion on the interior surface of the ring, suggesting that the ring has a copper alloy core, similar to other examples (SUSS-5EF5C1). These rings are often erroneously referred to as 'ring money' though there is no evidence to suggest that they were used as currency. They are predominantly believed to have been used for personal adornment, such as earrings…

  • Thumbnail image of SUSS-BA2824

Record ID: SUSS-BA2824
Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint arrowhead, probably Bronze Age in date, 2000-1000 BC. The arrow head is triangular in shape with a short tang along the broad edge. It has been formed from a small strucik flake and worked roughly to shape. The crudeness of the working suggests that the object is not complete and may be a rough out. The point of the arrowhead is quite thick compared to the tang, further suggesting that it is incomplete as no pressure flaking has taken place to thin the piece down.
