Object type: THUMB NAIL SCRAPER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint thumb nail scraper, made from a secondary flake, of probable Early Bronze Age date. Diffuse ripples and a wide butt suggest that a large, soft hammer was probably used. The majority of the dorsal face is covered with brown, chalky, cortex. The distal end shows semi-abrupt, long, parallel retouch. This retouch continues along the left edge, becoming shorter and abrupt. The flint is dark grey-brown in colour, with milky, blotched patination. Length: 25.55mm, Width: 23.67mm, Thickness: 7.21mm Weight: 4.67g

An incomplete cast copper alloy Middle Bronze Age basal loop spearhead, broken into two pieces. The blade is 'flame' shaped with low blade ribs. The loops are incorporated into the curved base and the loop plates squeezed inwards slightly. One loop is slightly misformed. The midrib section is lozenge shaped and then the stem circular in section. The socket is slightly splayed towards the end. The object remains in very good condition generally and is finely worked. The point of maximum width is approx. 27% up the blade, making this a Davis type 2, which was the largest group in …

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Caerphilly
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An almost complete Bronze Age side-looped spearhead. The leaf-shaped blade is 57.9mm in length, lozenge-shaped in cross-section, with a rounded central rib on both faces. The socket is hollow and flares outwards slightly towards the mouth. It is currently filled with soil. The mouth of the socket is bent inwards slightly to one side. The small, flattened, strip-shaped loops are situated about 11mm up the the socket and about 18mm below the blade. One of the loops has a slight break in its centre which appears to be due to errosion following deposition, rather than manufacture or wear.…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small fragment of copper alloy, probably from the tip of a spearhead of middle to late Bronze Age date: 1500-800 BC. The fragment is lentoid in cross-section, creating a slight ridge along the centre of both faces. It is very worn and pitted and the edges are damaged. It is difficult to see whether the end of the socket is visible within the break due to this damage and the small size of the fragment. The form of the original spearhead is impossible to determine and so it is difficult to date beyond middle to late Bronze Age. Length: 27.21mm, Width: 15.65mm, Thickness: 2.87mm, We…

Record ID: SOM-609110
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
The tip of a Bronze Age basal-looped spearhead. The object is sub-triangular in shape, either side curving inwards slightly before coming to a point at the tip. A raised midrib runs longitudinally down the centre of each face, all the way to the tip. In cross-section this rib is hollow and lozenge shaped. The shape of the tip suggests that this is probably a flame shaped spearhead, which according to Davis (2006, pp.49-50) is the most numerous of the basal-looped series and is likely to have originated in the Acton Park phase and had its main period of use in the Taunton Phase, so a…

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…

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…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a middle Bronze Age socketed basal loop spear head. Only part of the socket and the lower blade survives. The socket is oval and expands slightly towards the outer end, which is heavily damaged and partially missing. At the other end, towards the base of the blade, the socket becomes lozenge shaped in cross-section. Only a small part of one side of the blade and one basal loop survives. The remaining loop is squeezed inwards and flattened. This offers no evidence about the original form of the blade. The fragment survives in relatively poor condition with much corrosion.…

A fragment of a probable socketed spear of Bronze Age date. Only the mid-rib section survives. This is long, narrow and tapering with a hollow interior and is circular in cross-section. Part of one face is missing and there are breaks visible around the socket end and along each side, presumably where blades would have extended originally. It is heavily corroded with only small amounts of the original surface surviving in places. The interior of the socketed is coated with bright green copper alloy corrosion. Without further diagnostic details its precise form and date cannot be de…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper alloy Bronze Age socketed axehead. Only a small fragment of the axe socket survives. There is a raised rim c.12mm wide around the outer face of the socket rim. What is left of the socket suggests that it was roughly rectangular in cross-section at the end. A small portion of one side of the axehead survives with a casting seam along its outer face. The surface of the metal is heavily corroded with a bright green patina and the breaks are all very worn. Socketed axes of this form were in use in Britain from c.1300-800 BC generally, but this probably belongs to…

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint thumbnail scraper, made from a retouched tertiary waste flake. The ventral face is very slightly convex and the bulb of purcussion appears to have been removed by a recent break. The dorsal face has three flaking scars, surrounded on three edges by semi-abrupt to abrupt retouch. The distal end has a slightly rolled edge resulting from later damage probably through ploughing or similar action. There is a large flake missing at the proximal end, which appears to have occured naturally following deposition. The flint is green-grey-whitish in colour, with a milky patina which has o…

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…
