A fragment from a copper alloy spearhead of middle to late Bronze Age date. Only the tip survives. It is very damaged and corroded, but roughly sub-triangular in form and with a lozenge section and a wide hemispherical rib running along the centre of each face. The flattened sections to either side of this are very damaged and the tip is missing. At the other end is an irregular break with a slight dimple in the centre suggesting that the spear had a socket. There is a thick brown patina that is missing in a few places revealling a green inner core. It is likely to be of middle to lat…

Record ID: LEIC-50E160
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible flint 'barbed and tanged' arrowhead of early Bronze Age date. The object is crude and only approximates the standard barbed and tanged form so may be a practice piece. It has a prominent bulb of percussion that has been partially removed via a long flake to the left side. A similar flake has been removed from the other side on the dorsal face, together creating the tang. A long, thin flake has been removed from either side of the dorsal face creating a point. The end has been shaped via semi-abrupt, long, sub-parallel retouch. A few further flakes have been removed from the…

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy (bronze) fragment from a spearhead of uncertain Mid - Late Bronze Age date (1400-750 BC). The fragment has lost all its diagnostic features and so the classification cannot be further refined. The fragment comprises a section of the upper part of the spear blade, specifically the lozenge sectioned central mid-rib and a feathered section of blade, the tip of the spearhead is lost. The mid-rib is high and this is more common on spearhead of Middle Bronze Age date. The surface is a dark brown colour with a polished surface patina- this patina is pitted and has light gre…
