Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Swansea

Blade fragment from either a spear or possibly a rapier of middle-late bronze age date (c. 1450 - 800 BC). The blade is relatively undiagnostic and is most likely from a spear. It is triangular in plan with a lentoid cross section across the blade. Remains of a high mi-rib is present and this would have given strength to the blade when used. The fragment has been rolled in the ploughsoil and the long edges have been removed. It is possible that across the break on the lower edge the remains of a slight depression can be seen - this is possibly the top of the socket (a naturally weak po…

Middle Bronze Age bronze blade, possibly a dirk of Group II blade with a damaged butt. The dirk is incomplete with some peripheral damage to the butt and some distortion (with a length of 131.4mm and a weight of 19.7g). The shoulders are eroded but are probably close to their original width (with a surviving width of 39.2mm). The original form of the hilt is now uncertain and there are no definitive arcs from rivet holes present along the edges although it is possible to suggest an arc at the apex, towards the more complete shoulder side. The butt is thinned (with a thickness at th…

Middle Bronze Age bronze blade, possibly a dirk of Group II or III blade with a damaged butt The dirk is incomplete with some peripheral damage to the butt and upper part of the blade (with a length of 135.2mm and a weight of 32.6 g). The top edge of the butt is damaged and irregular, with a number of arcs, possibly related to rivet holes but none of which may now be identified with any certainty. The dirk is thinnest at the butt (with a thickness of 0.8mm) and is widest across the eroded shoulders (with a surviving width of 38.7mm). The original form of the hilt is now uncertain…

Middle Bronze Age bronze blade, possibly a dirk of Group IV blade with a damaged butt. The dirk is incomplete with some peripheral damage to the butt (with a length of 124.3mm and a weight of 29.3g). The shoulders are eroded but appear to have been comparatively broad (with a surviving width of 48.2mm) and is better preserved on one side. The original form of the hilt is now uncertain although it may have been of trapezoidal form with differential corrosion to the apex of the butt, which now has convergent sides. There are no definite rivet holes evident but there is a notch at t…
