In profile the blade is sub-triangular with the widest section being before the stop ridge. Directly below the stop ridge on both sides is a concave depression which is divided vertically in the centre by a raised rib. The rear part of the axe, from the stop ridge to the butt, is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in section …

Description: An incomplete fragment from a penannular ‘lock ring. Originally the ring would have been C shaped in plan and bi-conical in form with the two opposing edges abutting forming a slight gap within the ring. It is formed of 25 or 26 individual square sectioned wires; all but two of these are twisted with an even clockwise turn creating a sinuous spiral like thread. Positioned on the upper and lower faces nearest the central hole are two plain wires acting as a border. The two terminals of the ring show evidence of direct heating that has melted the gold to form a si…

Object type: SPEARHEAD

A fragment of cast copper alloy spearhead of Middle to Late Bronze Age date (1400- 800 BC). The spearhead is broadly triangular in shape with both long edges and the tip well preserved. A strong narrow mid-rib is present terminating near the tip. The mid-rib does not divide the fragment evenly suggesting that the blades had been sharpened on a regular basis with one edge being worn away more than the other. Blade bevels on both long edges are present. The break is patinated suggesting that it is due to old damage rather than something more recent in the burial environment. It is possi…
