Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy Early Bronze Age flat axehead, possibly of the Migdale tradition. The axehead is flat on both faces, and both faces show signs of re-sharpening at the blade end. One face has a scar running roughly diagonally across the axehead; this may be a casting mark, or possibly occurs due to later damage. The blade is crescentic in shape. In profile, the butt end of the axe is rectangular with rounded edges. It is not clear if there is a break at the butt end (now worn very smooth), however it is likely that the original overall length was at least a little longer in order for it…

Object type: HARNESS PENDANT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Elaborate quatrefoil-shaped horse harness pendant. It is cast and made of copper alloy. The suspension loop is complete giving a total length of 40mm. This harness pendant appears to be armorial and possibly shows a lion passant guardant on a black (Sable) square field with red (Gules) fleur de lis springing from each side. It is in fair condition, although the decoration is worn. It is very similar to an example from Reepham in Norfolk (Ashley, 2002). This type of horse furniture dates to the medieval period and this example is probably 14th century. Ref. Ashley, S., 2002, Medieval Ar…
