Object type: PIN
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Milton Keynes
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A copper alloy quoit-headed pin of Middle Bronze Age date. It is undecorated and has a crinkly gold-coloured surface but is clearly made of copper alloy that has been in anerobic conditions which have preserved the colour. There are patches of green corrosion products so possibly the plough has pulled the pin out of the original deposition site. The flat loop of the head has slightly rounded edges and is circular, 30.15 in diameter, with a central circular, perforation, 23mm in diameter. This has been slightly bent probably after burial as has the shaft. The shaft itself is a flat…

Record ID: NARC-EDBA86
Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Milton Keynes
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of the butt end of a Bronze Age flanged or palstave axe. The object is copper-alloy and is 28 mm long and 24 mm wide. The axe is flanged in profile, with a ridge on each edge of the axe on the obverse and reverse, making the axe appear like a capital I on its side in profile. These ridges are to allow the axe handle to be slotted into the axe before being secured with a twine binding. The break is worn smooth and the axe was evidently broken in antiquity. The axe dates from around 2500 BC to 1200 BC.
