A fragment of a copper alloy middle Bronze Age palstave axe. Only a small section of the butt end of the palstave survives.

The flanges extend almost to the end of the butt. The surface is heavily pitted and corroded with traces of a brown-orange patina in places. The break is worn. Without further diagnostic details the form of the palstave is uncertain, although it is likely to be an early or transitional type suggesting…

Fragment of the butt of a Bronze Age palstave axe. The fragment is wedge shaped with raised edges of each side creating a 'H' shaped profile. The fragment is in fairly poor condition; it is eroded and pitted with very rounded edges. However, a small amount of dark-green, shiny patina can be seen in a few places. The small size and worn condition of the fragment makes it difficult to determine the original form of the palstave. However, it probably dates to the mid Bronze Age. Length: 28.6mm, Width: 21.7mm, Thickness: 10.2mm Weight: 23.4g
