Possible bronze casting jet of uncertain age. It is a domed oval in shape with a raised central ridge running along its length. It is solid and is flat on the reverse. The patina is uneven- mostly a drk green but with lighter green patches which indicate bronze disease. It could date from the the Bronze Age through to the Post Medieval period.

Cast copper alloy socketed Bronze Age axe dating from c.1200-800BC. It is mostly complete with the side loop remaining. The blade is angular, possibly due to wear/breakage. It has a square cross-section with a raised collar at the mouth. The surface is worn and so it is not possible to tell how many ribs there were. There is a casting seam on the side where the loop is. There are also 2 casting seams visible on the inside of the axe. It has a green/brown patina with patches of orange which may indicate there was iron buried nearby.
