A Late Bronze Age copper alloy tanged chisel, probably dating to c. 1150-800 BC. The chisel survives complete, although the tang has been damaged, and is now bent at 45 degrees to the plane. The tang is rectangular in cross section, tapering to a point in profile and with a sub-rectangular end in plan, with the remains of casting seems running down either lateral face, particularly prominent at the interstice with the collar. The latter is elaborated, and oval in cross section, with concave sides and an expanded upper edge. The blade projects from below the less pronounced lower edge …

An elongate, narrow, sub-oval, bifacially worked flint chisel made on a thick flake or naturally fractured nodule fragment. One face has steep flaking around the entire margin and a central axial zone of chalky cortex remains. The other face has covering, scaled, low angle retouch with an irregular flake pattern, one end is steeply flaked from both sides, producing a sub lozengiform cross-section; the other end is flatter, creating a near plano convex cross section. The 'plano convex' end is blunt; the other end is wedge shaped, formed by an oblique (not tranchet) flake. The tool is c…

Part of a possible flint chisel. The object appears to be the butt-end of a narrow, elongate bifacially worked tool, probably broken during manufacture. One end rounded, one end rectilinear. Both faces exhibit covering, scaled, semi-abrupt (in places stepped) flaking to form a lozenge shaped cross section. The midline edges are slightly irregular but straight overall, and the butt is irregular in shape. The break is near perpendicular to the long axis and is probably the result of end-shock during manufacture; a second angled facet to the break on one face is noted, co-inciding with a …

A copper alloy socketed chisel with curvilinear decoration. A wedge-shaped implement with a square socket. There is the remnant of a beaded lip around the top of the socket.

Object type: CHISEL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A cast copper alloy chisel blade of probable Bronze Age date. Any collar and/or tang has been broken off the blade. The object has a rectangular profile which tapers to a flat, slightly curving blade. The edges are squared. On both of the flat sides, a groove runs along the object; on one side it is fairly central, but on the other it runs along one edge, making the profile more triangular towards the proximal end. The object is similar to Bronze Age chisels such as NMS-9A9212 and NMS-083CF3, both from Norfolk.
