  • Thumbnail image of HAMP-AEBA60

Record ID: HAMP-AEBA60
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment possibly from a cast copper-alloy axehead of Bronze Age date. The fragment consists of a fragment of the blade and includes an abraded, expanded cutting edge. The axehead has been broken approximately 7.5mm from the cutting edge which is distorted; the 'cutting edge' is also notably blunt. At the break the object has a pointed oval cross-section. The object is highly corroded and is largely a mid grey colour, but with some patches of mid green corrosion.

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment from a bladed object of Bronze Age date. The object consists of the abraded blade tip, that tapers to a broadly rounded point. All of the edges have been abraded and broken to a greater or lesser extent. The break is broadly straight. The blade is broadly oval in cross section. Where it survives the metal has a dark-brown patina; underlying this it is a corroded mid-green colour.

Record ID: HAMP-AD3767
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a Bronze Age cast copper-alloy socketed spearhead. The fragment is now sub-trapezoidal in plan, with breaks at both ends and at the socket. The surviving fragment is broadly triangular in cross section, in full it whould have been broadly lozengiform in cross-section. The edge is abraded and slightly bent. The metal has a variable dark-green patina with some pitting and small patches of lighter corrosion product. Unfortunately with so much of the artefact missing, it is very difficult to tell the phase of the Middle/Late Bronze Age to which it belongs.

  • Thumbnail image of HAMP-92B624

Record ID: HAMP-92B624
Object type: AWL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A corroded cast copper-alloy awl or tracer of possible Bronze Age date. The artefact has a thin body with circular cross-section that tapers to a point. There is a pair of small parallel ridges which run along the circumference of the artefact at edge where the body becomes the tang. The 'tang' is sub-rectangular in cross-section, tapering gradually to it tip and is now bent to one side. Such construction is typical of prehistoric awls which are thought to date from the Late Bronze Age. The object has a mid to light green patina; the surface of the tang is pitted in places revealing a…

Object type: GOUGE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A very worn and corroded, incomplete cast copper-alloy object, probably a gouge of Bronze Age. The artefact is sub-rectangular in shape and a shallow U-shaped in cross-section at one end, becoming circular at the other. One end is open (socketed) and there is a recess extending from this end into the body of the object which has a dark orange-brown mineralisation within the socket similar to DOR-FD5EF4 on this database. The artefact has a dark-brown patina in places, the majority on the concave recess and partially over the semicircular curve. There is evidence of pitting and the meta…

Object type: RAPIER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragmentary cast copper-alloy element of a rapier or blade of Bronze Age date. The object consists of a fragment of the blade which gradually narrows from the central section (min.: 11.75mm, max.: 16.3mm). The edges of the blade are bevelled on both sides; the cross-section at the break is lozengiform, the blade is notched in places and is pitted. The metal has a dark-grey patina, with slight patches of light-green and off-white corrosion product and pitting.

Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete, worn and pitted copper-alloy small Early Bronze Age small flat axehead. In plan, from the rounded butt end the width remains the same until about the centre of the axe when it begins to gently expand to the blade end; the butt end is damaged and broken due to an old break. In section, the axe gradually thickens slightly towards the centre but there is no ridge/stop or flanges. The blade edge and tips are rounded and worn. The artefact has a mid-green patina; the pitting is lighter green.

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of blade from a broken Bronze Age cast copper-alloy axehead. The fragment is of the cutting edge, with a old chip just off the tip. The fragment is slightly bent at one tip and the break is rough; the damage means that if the axe was socketed this is no longer visible. The cross-section is almost oval, with the sides expanding out towards the blade end. The fragment is triangular in profile, tapering from the body to the cutting edge. The cutting edge is defined by shallow bevelling over the last c. 8mm; the absolute cutting edge has been further sharpened. The cutting edge…

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small, corroded cast copper-alloy fragment probably comprising the butt of a palstave axe of Middle Bronze Age date. The object is sub-trapezoidal in form, with a ragged break. It narrows from its maximum thickness at the break to a minimum at the terminal. Emergent flanges are faintly visible at the sides. The object has a dark-green patina where it survives; it is otherwise light green or orange/brown as a result of corrosion.

The blade from a broken Late Bronze Age cast copper-alloy socketed axe. The cutting edge survives in full, with a minor old chip just off centre, in addition to part of the body defined by roughly straight cut. The damage means that only the end of the socket is visible. The surviving cross-section is sub-rectangular, with the sides expanding out towards the blade end. The fragment is triangular in profile, tapering from the body to the cutting edge. The cutting edge is defined by shallow bevelling over the last c. 11.8mm; the absolute cutting edge has been further sharpened. The beve…

Object type: PENANNULAR RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Penannular gold ring with hoop of circular cross-section; original decorative banding in broad stripes of yellow and paler gold are very worn and best perceptible near inner surface. Roughness of gold at one terminal could be due to damage. The surface is heavily worn; scores and scrapes are likely to have occurred post-depositionally. Visual inspection suggests that the piece comprises a gold covering over a base metal core. Diameter 18-18.5mm; internal diameter 6.5mm; breadth 6.5mm; weight 9.51 grams. A well known Late Bronze Age type, decorative in character, dating to circ…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Small, plain penannular gold ring of flattened oval cross section; the ends taper slightly to flat terminals. Examination in the laboratory indicated that the object has a base metal core. External diameter 15.5x14mm; internal diameter 4.5mm; breadth 6mm; weight 6.18 grams. Non-destructive X-ray fluorescence analysis of the surface of penannular ring from 'Havant area', Hampshire, indicated a gold content of 76 - 79 %, silver content of 16 - 18 %, the remainder being copper. The ring weighs 6.18 grams and the specific gravity measurement of 9 indicates that it has a base metal core.

Record ID: HAMP-AEA895
Object type: SHEET
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Bronze age strip of sheet gold which long, cigar shaped with squared off terminals. At either end is a set of three small perforations set in a triangle. These are roughly circular piercings with evidence for rotational action in their formation; the tiny lips of metal pushed through to the reverse have been crudely doubled back and flattened. There is no evidence for decoration. The strip has many transverse creases consistent with it having been rolled up and crushed flat (see above circumstances). The main additional damage is a repeating pattern of rounded hammer dents of varied…

Record ID: HAMP-AD4604
Object type: BRACELET
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A gold Bronze age bracelet. In its current form, this is a roughly annular band with a small overlap. One end is a slightly thickened terminal of thin crescentic shape, the other is a thin, wavy edge most likely the product of the reworking of a broken end. It can be assumed that the original form was a penannular bracelet with two matching thickened terminals and a broad gently C-shaped band section, which survives in the reworked form. Remodelling after the loss of one terminal involved pulling the two ends together to overlap and tying them together with a thread (not surviving) pa…
