Object type: RAPIER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: City of Southampton
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An almost complete cast copper alloy Middle Bronze Age rapier. The butt is incomplete and damaged which makes the original shape difficult to determine. Two C-shaped incomplete rivet holes or notches lie in the upper part of the butt, which is where the handle would have been attached. The notches are spaced approximately 24.82 mm apart. Slight shadow (shallowing of the metal) of the handle is visible just under the rivet holes extending centrally to the top of the break. This widest point (49.52 mm) is at the shoulders. The blade extends c. 290 mm from the base of the butt and is ap…

See full report by A Doherty in Walton and Flynn 2010. "Although all are undiagnostic bodysherds, they are clearly from a closed vessel, very likely to be a jar imitating the classic BB1 everted-rim form". "The excavators reported that the coin hoard was deposited within the vessel, however it is worth noting that perhaps as little as 10-20% of the vessel was recovered and that all of the sherds are from the mid body, with no base, rim or shoulder sherds present. Although the partially complete state of the vessel may be explained by modern disturbance, if deposited upright and truncat…

Robertson 2000, 223 no. 913: ""In some adjoining fields [i.e. adjoining the Manor House, Bitterne] were found a number of earthen vases, containing ashes; and a square green glass bottle, filled with bones; which mouldered away on being exposed to the air. Many coins and medals have been found in every part within the ditches; and some below high-water mark: they are chiefly of the Emperors who reigned between Claudius and Constantine; of the latter there are many.

Robertson 2000, 142 no. 633: ""The writer has thirteen small brass coins, which were lately in the possession of a resident at Weston. They are of the following Imperators and usurpers, viz. Herennius Etruscus, Trebonianus Gallus, Valerianus, Victorinus, Gallienus, Claudius Gothicus, Postumus, Marius and Tetricus. From the appearance of these coins and from their being struck within a period of little over twenty years, it is believed that they formed part of one of the hoards which were found some years since in that neighbourhood." -A.H. Skelton, in Proc. Hants. Field Club, I (1885), 43"
