Complete cast copper alloy palstave dating from the late Middle Bronze Age probably dating from c. 1500-1150BC. It was part of the Acton Park or Taunton metalwork assemblage of the later Middle Bronze Age and is very probably of Type Wantage (Schmidt and Burgess 1981, 133-134, nos. 801-808. The palstave survives complete but with damaged surfaces and an abraded cutting edge. However, it is otherwise in good condition. The blade appears bevelled and it is very likely that it was originally much wider and larger; with wear and resharpening it had lost its original size and shape. It dis…

The main body of the axe is rectangular with the blade part flaring outwards to form a curved cutting edge. The main body of the axe is rectangular with the blade part flaring outwards to form a curved cutting edge. The axe has a well-defined stop-ridge on both faces and the flat sides of the axe are lozenge-shaped from this stop ridge extending towards the butt of the axe. The axe has notable p…

Cast copper alloy palstave dating from the Middle Bronze Age, that is c. 1400-1300BC. Its type is equivalent in dating to British palstaves of the Taunton metalwork assemblage. The palstave survives complete and almost untarnished; it is in very good condition. The blade is crescent-shaped and the sides almost parallel while the sides are diamond- or kite-shaped. There is a stop-ridge half way down the body for securing the shaft and a semi-circular hollow moulding underneath.

Cast copper alloy complete unlooped palstave axe probably dating to the Middle Bronze Age palstave 1450 to 1300 BC. The axe is of shares similarities with the Taunton metalwork assemblage and Hotham related to the palstaves of the Acton Park metalwork assemblage to which it bears some resemblance similar to Needham et al fig 140 (1985) and Read (1995: p.3 fig 9 ). The butt is slightly concave and has a width of 55mm. The flanges are flat, longiform in plan, straight and parallel as far as the stop but do not extend all the way to the butt, with a width at the stop of 30mm. The blade is…

A complete copper alloy Middle Bronze Age unlooped palstave axehead (c.1500-c.1300 BC). The palstave shares typological features with Group I and Group II palstaves. These were the primary forms introduced to Britain in the Middle Bronze Age Schmidt and Burgess 1981). This particular axehead is probably a Group I (shield-pattern) type from the Acton Park phase of Bronze Age metalwork, distinguished by its shield-shaped decoration below the stop ridge (ibid.p.119). The axe is sub-triangular in plan and sub-rectangular in section, tapering to the blade terminal. The blade is narrow taper…
