Record ID: SF-132BE9
Object type: AWL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy tracer awl of probable Bronze Age date. One end of the awl is rectangular in plan and triangular in profile tapering to a pointed tip. The opposite end of the awl is cylindrical in form and tapers to a sharp point. It has a mid green patina that has some pitting in places. The entire object measures 63.90mm in length, 6.02mm in width, 5.36mm in thickness, and weighs 7.96g. This awl is likely to be Bronze Age in date, although the form does not change much through time and similar objects are also noted in the Roman period and possibly later.

An incomplete copper-alloy blade, possibly a knife of Middle Bronze Age date. A fragment from the butt or tang end survives, the remainder of the object missing due to old breaks. It is rectangular in form, oval in cross-section, with a flattened mid-rib that flares towards the rounded end, suggesting this is the butt rather than blade end. The opposite end is incomplete, perhaps due to old breaks or damage in antiquity. Potentially the rounded end may be the result of re-use, although this remains uncertain.
