Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete and highly corroded copper-alloy probable unlooped palstave type axehead dating to the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1500-1300 BC, perhaps of the Acton Park II metalworking assemblage. The butt and most of the blade have broken away in old damage, though otherwise the axehead is preserved relatively intact. It is broadly rectangular in plan and section, demonstrating a profile which thickens towards the midpoint of the object before thinning again as the axe flares outwards slightly towards the blade end, with parallel sides and a presumably originally convex cutting edge (now lo…

Object type: RAZOR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy tanged razor of probable Late Bronze Age date and unusual form, c. 1150-800 BC. The razor demonstrates a leaf-shaped lenticular sectioned blade, the sides of which have suffered some minor losses due to post-depositional damage. The bade tapers towards its rear edge, where there are two trunnion-like projections marking the beginnings of the tang, after which the remainder of the handle flattens out before tapering further and bifurcating in what is possibly the base of a terminal loop (though this section of the object is broken away in old damage). Pre…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy fragment of a palstave-type axe dating to the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1500-1300 BC. It is probably of the Acton Park II or Taunton metalworking assemblages, though little more can be said referring to the type due to its incompleteness. Only the butt section survives, which has a rounded end and is broadly sub-rectangular in plan, broken at its lower edge in an irregular oblique truncation. The axe demonstrates prominent shoulder-flanged on both sides, giving the fragment a broadly sub-triangular appearance when viewed in section. Preserved in good conditi…

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy socketed spearhead possibly dating to the Penard phase of the Middle/Late bronze age, dating c. 1200-800 BC. Only the mid-section of the blade survives, with the tip and circular-sectioned socket broken away in irregular truncations. In plan the spear would originally have been broadly leaf-shaped, while its prominent midrib on each face gives it a sub-lozengiform section. Preserved in corroded condition with a number of encrustations, it survives to a length of 67.05mm, 32.99mm wide at its widest point and 7.01mm thick at its midpoint. It weighs 28.66g.…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy fragment originating from a spearhead of later Middle Bronze Age to Late Bronze Age date, c. 1350-800 BC. It is broadly triangular in form and sub-lozengiform in section. Only the tip of the blade survives, demonstrating a prominent midrib on both sides flanked by two smaller ridges. At its lower edge there is a neat broadly straight truncation which has served to separate the tip from the rest of the object. Though the base does not survive, Peter Reavill suggests that this is probably a pegged form. Preserved in good condition with an even green patina…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy dagger or knife dating to the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1500-1300 BC. It is broadly triangular in plan and demonstrates a lenticular-sectioned tapering blade with a rounded end. Both sides of the blade additionally demonstrate a prominent broad and flat mid-rib which extends above two lateral rivet-notches, above which extends an integral sub-rectangular element with the remains of a central aperture for a further rivet that would have secured the blade itself to a handle. However, the upper portion of the latter is now broken away in old damage. Preserved i…

An incomplete knapped flint fragment originating from a plano-convex knife of Early Bronze Age date, c. 2500-1500 BC. It is now preserved in fairly fresh condition with an even white and blue patina covering most of its surfaces, though the inner material (visible at its truncated end) seems to have been a dark blue colour originally. The fragment is sub-triangular in form (probably the form of the original knife itself) and plano-convex in section. Its ventral face is plain, though its dorsal surface (specifically the right dorsal edge) demonstrates directly applied invasive pressure-…

An incomplete fragment originating from a copper-alloy awl of undiagnostic Bronze Age to Roman date, c. 1500 BC- 410 AD. Originally the object would have been double-ended, with one taking the form of a chisel and the other pointed, though now only the tip of the latter survives due to an old truncation that has removed the rest of the awl. Preserved in fair condition with an uneven greenish patina, it survives to a length of 24.44mm, while being c. 4.83mm thick at its truncated end. It weighs 3.01g. C.f with SF-9C64DD for a complete example recorded onto the PAS database.
