Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a copper alloy spear head dating from the Middle Bronze Age, about 1550 - 1250 BC. It probably can be assigned to Davis's Group 6 'Developed side looped' type (Davis 2017). It has a narrow blade measuring 44mm in length and 18mm in width. The tip is missing and the break is very worn and patinated suggesting it broke in antiquity; the base of the fragment also shares the same patina. Most of the spear head is missing.

An incomplete socketed copper alloy spear head dating from the Middle Bronze Age, about 1550 - 1250 BC. It probably can be assigned to Davis's Group 6 'Developed side looped' type (Davis 2017). It has a narrow blade measuring 45mm in length. The tip is missing and the break is very worn and patinated suggesting it broke in antiquity. Only circa 12-15mm of the tip apears to be missing. The blade wings are highly abraded and irregular, though much of this appears to have occured post-deposition since the breaks are a different patina to the rest of the object. A maximum width of 7mm rema…

A complete copper alloy Middle Bronze Age unlooped palstave axehead (c.1500-c.1300 BC). When viewed from the side the axe has a slender body of rectangular form, which then flares into the blade. In plan the axe is a slender pointed-oval. The butt is H-shaped in section and terminates towards the centre of the axe with a well-defined, rounded stop-ridge on both sides rising at right angles to the septum. Beyond the septum is a moulded shield-shaped stop-ridge set transversely across the body. The blade is flared and the surface is smooth, bevelled and sharpened. The palstave shares …

A Middle to Late Bronze Age palstave axehead (c.1500-c.1300 BC). The axehead is a Group I (shield-pattern) type from the Acton Park phase of Bronze Age metalwork, distinguished by its shield-shaped decoration below the stop ridge. The butt is H-shaped in section and has some damage to the terminal. The flanges of the butt are wide, and at the end is a pronounched stop-ridge. Beyond this extending onto the blade on both sides is a shield-shaped decoration with a moulded rib that extends from the centre of this and further along the body. The blade is flared and extends to a full cresce…

Dr Peter Chowne writes: a complete cast copper-alloy developed side-looped spearhead that can be assigned to Davis Group 6A (Davis, 2012). The terminology used below follows that of Davis. Although complete there is some damage to the blade both ancient and modern, probably the result of agricultural activity. Surface colour is predominantly dark brown some of the damaged areas have green corrosion. The tip of a wooden shaft survives within the socket. Length: 125 mm, Width: 26 mm, D; 72 mm, Weight: 67.1 g. The blade is flame-shaped with a low (25%) 'Position of Maximum Width' and slig…

Fragment of a Middle to Late Bronze Age spear. Only part of the blade located near to the terminal (tip-end) survives. It is lozenge in section and has a pronounced rib running down the centre on both sides. The entire perimeter is damaged. Much of the blade is pitted with bright green patches of corrosion, however, the original surface is smooth and has a mid-brown patina. One of the breaks is irregular and does not appear to have been done intentionally; the other, however, is more regula, straight, and might be the result of having been cut. 38mm x 21mm x 4mm. 12.58g.

A near-complete Bronze Age copper-alloy palstave dating to the Middle to Late Bronze Age transition.The axe is if Schmidt and Burgess's Nettleham Type, which places it within the Wilburton Industry, Needham Period 6, 1150-950 CAL BC. The axe is heavily eroded and has breaks across the butt and the side loop. The blade gently flares to the cutting edge; the sides are straight, and in section the blade is rectangular. The cutting edge is abraded and appears to have been reground several times owing to the lack of expanded blade at the edges.The axe has a pronouced stop-ridge on both …

An incomplete Bronze Age copper alloy barbed-and-tanged arrowhead, dating circa 1275-1140 BC. Other than the tang, the original perimeter of the arrowhead is heavily abraded or entirely missing. The present perimeter does, however, indicate that the sides were gently curved towards the tip, rather than being straight. A v-shaped notch separates the wings from the tang. The tang is rectangular in section, and measures 4mm x 1mm. A shallow midrib is visible on one side only. The midrib extends from the tang, being of the same width, and gently tapers towards the tip. The surface of …

Copper alloy developed flat axe of Aylesford type (Schmidt & Burgess, 1981). The axe is dark yellowish brown with an even surface patina except in a few places where green patina is visible. There are a number of shallow grooves on both faces of the blade indicative of use rather than recent damage in the ploughsoil. It measures 58 mm in length but the butt is missing. The break is just behind a median bevelled stop and is patinated consistent with the rest of the axe perhaps suggesting breakage in use. Width at the crescentic cutting edge is 50.5 mm and the axe weighs 89.3 gm with a …

A late Neolithic or early Bronze Age shafthole implement dating to the period c.2100 - 1500 BC. The axe was originally elongated in plan, tapering from the central shafthole to either end. Only one half of the axe survives, being broken on both sides along its thinnest part either side of the shafthole. The axe is sub-rectangular in section. The surface is smooth, and the butt displays a moderate amount of wear. The stone is mottled green, grey, and orange, and on one face a large patch of iron-coloured deposit is visible. The classification of this item is somewhat problematic. It…

A possible fragment of a blade from a sword, dagger, or rapier of Middle to Late Bronze Age date (1000 to 800 BC). The blade is made of copper alloy and now has a red-brown patina covering much of the surface, including areas of the breaks. The fragment is sub-triangular in plan and lozenge-shaped in section but both of the 'edges' are worn and irregular. The fragment appears to taper quite rapidly, suggesting that this could be from towards the tip-end of the weapon. The break across the wider-end is straight and appears to have been carefully cut rather than having been snapped or b…

The fragment is lozenge-shaped in section but both of the 'edges' are worn and irregular.A clear apex runs down the centre of the blade on both sides. The fragment is slightly curved in section, suggesting that it was bent before having been broken. Both of the breaks are relatively straight, though somewhat worn, and this might suggest that the object was carefully cu…

An early to middle Bronze Age copper-alloy flat axehead. The butt is wedge-shaped, and slightly concave along the edge. The body is rectangular in section, and flares to the blade.

Fragment of the tip of a late Bronze Age copper-alloy spear. The tip is lentoid in section , with one side wing damaged more extensively close to the break. The surviving wing, in places, reaches 2.5mm in width, though this side has a number of irregular notches. The break exposes a tapering hollow centre. Parts of the break are smooth, but it is unclear whether this is owing to post-depositional wear or is an indication that the item was purposefully dismantled in antiquity, perhaps for votive or practical reasons. The fragment is likely to relate to the Ewart Park phase. The fragmen…

A Middle to Late Bronze Age socketed axe. It has a rounded sub-rectangular opening with a prounced lip. The body is decorated with three horizontal ribs. The blade flared, but the cutting edge is rather narrow, suggesting that it has been reground several times. A side loop is located close to the socket on one side. A casting seam is also visible down the centre of the sides. This axe was found in the early 1900s in the Bardney/Barlings area. No further details exist. This record was created using photographs supplied by a family member of the finder.

Fragment of a Middle to Late Bronze Age axe of uncertain type, but of Developed Axe or Palstave form. Only a fragment of the butt-end survives. The fragment is rectangular in plan and triangular in section. It has wide flanges on both sides at the break giving the axe an 'H'-shaped section, and these flanges taper to the butt. The break is irregular and well patinated, suggesting that it occured by accident in antiquity. The surface is mottled green and pitted with areas of corrosion. The length of the axe is 25mm, the width is 26mm. Each flange extends 2mm at the break. The body i…
