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).

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 condit…

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 patin…
