Record ID: IOW-9C577A
Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Bronze Age copper-alloy palstave (1500 BC - 1150 BC). This implement is sub-triangular in plan and side view. The butt, flange, septum, loop (if one existed) and part of the blade are missing and there are two old breaks. The upper break, close to where a stop-ridge may have existed, is sub-rectangular in cross-section and measures 23.3mm in width and 13.6mm in thickness. The edges of the blade are slightly convex. From the upper break, the sides flare evenly outwards towards the cutting edge. Less than half of the cutting edge has survived as there is an oblique break…

Object type: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a Late Bronze Age copper-alloy socketed axehead (c. 1000 BC-c. 800 BC). This fragment is the lower part of the expanded blade and forms the cutting edge. It has been cut or broken just above the base of the socket. The cutting edge is curved convex (crescent shaped) and is very sharp. In plan, the sides flare out to the blade tips and in side view it is triangular. Both sides have a very faint casting seam which may have been hammered down. The remnant of the socket is about 11.0mm deep. This axehead is green with darker green corrosion products. It has patches of a dar…

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete and corroded Middle Bronze Age copper-alloy looped palstave axehead (c. 1400-c. 1200 BC). The wings, the majority of the septum and most of the lower part of the blade are missing. At the top of the fan shaped blade, on both sides, there is a 'shield' and mid-rib combined to form trident decoration. These mid-ribs extend about half way down the blade. The stops are deeply curved on both sides and the surviving portion of septum is 6.0mm in thickness. Just below the 'D'-shaped loop a casting seam is barely visible and may have been hammered down. A casting seam on the opp…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Late Bronze Age copper-alloy tanged chisel or leather-working tool (c.1150 BC-c. 800 BC). It is an elongated sub-triangular shape in plan. The tang, pointed at the end and sub-circular in cross-section, thickens towards the flaring blade which is sub-rectangular in cross-section. The cutting edge appears to be missing. However, due to corrosion this is uncertain. There is no collar. Length: 42.0mm; width: 13.6mm; thickness: 4.9mm. Weight: 4.77g.

Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete late Bronze Age copper-alloy leather-working knife (c. 1000 BC-801 BC). This implement is very similar to a chisel. It probably would have had a tang and collar prior to being broken. The surviving part, the blade, is sub-triangular in plan. It flares in width from the top towards the curved cutting edge. The cutting edge curves evenly. There are no casting seams. This implement has a mid-green patina with some small areas of corrosion. The break, which is oval in cross-section, may not be very old. Height: 43.2mm; width: 43.4mm; thickness: 5.4mm. Weight: 26.49g.

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Early Bronze Age flint barbed-and-tanged arrowhead (c. 2500 BC-c. 1500 BC). This arrowhead is triangular in plan and has been made from a tertiary flake retaining no traces of the original cortex. It is pointed-oval in side view and cross-section. Two notches chipped into the base of the flint separates the barbs and the elongated tang with an oblique end. The tang appears to have been deliberately made as such. The surfaces are bi-facially worked with covering, scaled, low angle retouch. The arrowhead is grey with a reddish tinge and some creamy mottling. Length: 25.9mm;…
