Record ID: SF-188A36
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy Bronze Age flanged axehead, dating to 1700-1500 BC. It has a sub-rectangular body with a rounded butt and it flares towards a crescent-shaped blade. The long edges of the body have raised flanges, leaving on both faces a recessed septum. The haft end thickens from the but towards its end at the centre of the body, where there is a stop-bevel on both faces; from the latter stop the body keeps the same thickness until the edge of the blade, from which it thins towards the cutting edge. The axehead is covered by a brownish green patina and a spread corrosion process has pit…

Record ID: SF-8C59DB
Object type: PIN
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper alloy middle Bronze Age 'Picardy' pin. Only a small section of the upper end of the pin survives. The head is an inverted conical shape with a flattened outer face, its lower end tapering to join the circular cross-sectioned shaft. The sides of the head are decorated with incised concentric grooves and there appears to be further incised linear decoration on the shaft as is typical on this style of pin, but this is worn and obscured by corrosion. The break at the lower end of the shaft is rounded and well worn and there is damage to the sides of the head in place…

Record ID: SF-A22557
Object type: SPEARHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper-alloy basal-looped spearhead of the Middle Bronze Age, dating to 1500 BC -1150 BC. The blade has a flame shape in plan and a lozange-shaped cross-section, with a slightly rounded mid-rib ridge extending to the its tip. There is only one oval loop surviving out of the two which are incorporated into the base of the blade, one either side of the central rib. The mid-rib extends and expands to form the hollow circular-sectioned socket. Both edges of the blade are moderately worn and the surfaces are pitted. See Davis' Type 3 (2006, plates 9-18). Length: 173.82 mm

Record ID: SF-AF8925
Object type: AXE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper alloy Bronze Age axe. Only the blade end survives. The blade curved gently outwards and the sides are both straight. The break across the inner end is well worn. The surface of the metal is corroded in places. Only a broad Bronze Age date can be suggested due to the lack of diagnostic features. Length: 42.75mm, width: 23.95mm, thickness: 11.49mm, weight: 38.66g

Record ID: SF-C4C11D
Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy flanged axe or chisel, dating to the early Bronze Age. The axe has expanding straight sides flaring just behind the outer end, which has a curved cutting edge. There are very slight flanges running along both sides. The butt is rounded. The surface of the metal is heavily pitted with corrosion. With its narrow shape and stright sides this is likely to be a developed flat axe. These are dated to the Early Bronze Age (EBA phase II / III), of metalworking stage IV-V (more likely V), which corresponds to Needham's (1996) Period 3 dating to 2,050 BC - 1,700 cal B…

A copper-alloy fragment of a middle Bronze Age spear head, dating to 1500 BC - 1100 BC. It is the spear tip, which has an oval midrib cross-section and a hollow longitudinal internal channel. The blades have a pair of longitudinal ribs on both faces; they merge in the tip.The edges of the blades are worn. Cf R.

Object type: DIRK
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy modified/shortened dirk dating to the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1500-1300 BC. This example falls into Burgess and Gerloff's group II, 'dirks with damaged or ill-formed blades modified for rehafting'. The dirk itself is missing the tip of its blade, but is otherwise preserved intact. Demonstrating a squared off thickened butt with two semi-circular notches (one on each face) cut into each side to facilitate hafting, The blade itself is lenticular in section with a broad, flattened midrib on each side. Preserved in fair condition with a patchy green patina dem…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint scraper of the Bronze Age period, dating from 2500-1000 BC. It has been manufactured on a secondary flake of a blueish grey flint.It is oval in plan; the ventral face has a visible bulb. There is a band of yellowish grey cortex running from the platform of percussion along one of the side of the scraper. The dorsal face is slightly concave due to knapping process. All the edges, apart from the platform of percussion, have abrupt short scaled retouch. Length 38.30 mm Width: 39.26 mm Thickness at the centre: 17.51 mm Weight: 26.25 g

Record ID: SF-5A5BF1
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete cast copper-alloy socketed spearhead dating to the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1550-1250 BC. This example is of Davis' Group 6-'Developed side looped spearheads', probably belonging to the Acton Park or Taunton metalworking phases. The base of the socket is missing along with the edge of one blade wing, but otherwise the spearhead is preserved intact. The socket itself is circular sectioned and extends into the head of the spear for a short distance before becoming solid, retaining most of one socket-loop at its irregularly truncated end. The latter has a broadly lozengiform lo…
