Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Swansea

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Swansea
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…
