Record ID: PAS-BF5AE5
Object type: PENANNULAR RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A penannular ring of slightly sub-rectangular cross-section, the terminals very close together. The surface is worn, and flattened on both faces near the terminals; there are traces of hammer-marks which give an irregular appearance to the surface. The internal surface has traces of paler gold banding which has been worn off the external surface. There is green corrosion internally, across both terminals and opposite them; this probably derives from the base metal core (see below).There is damage to the surface near one terminal and a small area of the gold wrapping is absent; there i…

Record ID: PAS-BF4245
Object type: TORC
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
The neckring is made from a heavy, thick bar of oval cross-section, which is thickest in the middle and tapers towards both ends. The terminals are finished off as flat oval surfaces. The object appears to have had a good surface finish prior to damage and it has been left entirely plain. The original curvature of the ornament has been distorted asymmetrically so that one arm is more extended than the other. The middle of the bar bears deep >cuts= across both faces apparently having been formed by ancient chisel strikes. Dimensions and metal content: Maximum dimension (distorted) 203…

Object type: CUP
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Cup with conical body tapering to an omphalos base; the rim is flaring; a riveted strap handle links the rim and upper body. The rivet plates are lozenge shaped and the handle has decorative ridges parallel with its edges. The rim bears a row of dots punched from the outer surface and is otherwise plain; between this plain zone and a further plain zone at the base the cup is corrugated. The cup has been crushed, particularly on one side; this might have resulted from a single blow from agricultural machinery. Dimensions and metal content: In present condition: maximum height (excludin…

Record ID: PAS-BF2BC7
Object type: PENANNULAR RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A small Late Bronze Age penannular ring of fat `D' section, the flatter face facing inwards. The object appears to be made by folding sheet gold over a core of another material, probably of copper. Exterior surfaces are relatively well smoothed, but the interior and the terminal faces are less well finished, such that folds and crimps remain clear. Dimensions and metal content: Diameter: 15.2 x 13.9mm; weight: 4.4g. X-ray fluorescence analysis conducted at the British Museum indicated an approximate gold content of 78 per cent for the cover.

Record ID: PAS-BED643
Object type: PENANNULAR RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Bronze Age gold penannular ring. The object comprises two round-sectioned penannular rings joined together. The presence of solder could not be detected by analysis but this does not preclude the use of the technique. The flat-faced ends show slight central dimples. Dimensions and metal content: Maximum diameter: 15mm; maximum width: 7mm, width of gap: 1mm; weight: 10.59g. X-ray fluorescence analysis conducted at the British Museum indicated an approximate gold content of 79 per cent.

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Much of the blade of a small socketed copper alloy spearhead. Although fine surface features have been lost due to surface deterioration in the soil, the midrib was almost certainly of lozenge section. Extant length: 53.3mm; maximum width: 22.4mm; maximum breadth: 10.0mm.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Early Bronze Age Flint Arrowhead. Tip is sharp and intact, small amount of cortex remaining on one of the barbs. Finely worked would suggest that it has been worked with a soft material eg. bone or antler and not stone. It has been worked on bifacially.
