  • Thumbnail image of SF-5A5BF1

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…

Record ID: SF-68AB45
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragment originating from a large socketed and basal looped spearhead of later Middle Bronze Age date (c. 1400-1150 BC) belonging to Davis' group 8; 'elongated spearheads with incorporated basal loops' forms. This object can probably be assigned to the Taunton or Penard metalworking phases. Only the upper section of the spearhead survives, consisting the upper blade and point, probably representing less than a third of the original object. The lower portion of the body, side-loops and socket have been removed by means of a neat old truncation. The upper blade is triangular in plan, w…

Record ID: SF-4497E7
Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete copper-alloy spiral ring probably of Bronze Age period, dating to c. 1500.1150 BC. It is circular in plan and it is formed by three coils of an oval cross-sectioned metal wire; both ends are broken and worn. The surface is very abraded and heavily pitted. A similar object has been recorded on the PAS database as HAMP-7556B3 and SF-761FF6 , see also examples of spiraloid rings in the Near Lewes hoard (SUSS-C5D042) and the Ockham hoard (SUR-B41DB6), both Middle Bronze Age in date. The function of this object is uncertain, given that it is too large to be a finger ring and …

Workflow stage: Published Find published
A copper-alloy Late Bronze Age to Early Iron Age socketed axehead fragment of the Sompting Type, Kingston variant, dating to c. 800-600 BC. It consists of the blade and part of the body of the axe. It has a trapezoidal shape in plan and a rectangular cross-section visible through the break. The sides flare gradually to the blade; they have flash lines, which have been partially smoothed after casting. Both faces of the blade have transverse striations. The decoration is visible only on one face and consists of three longitudinal and parallel ribs terminating with three alligned ringed …

Object type: CHISEL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete cast copper-alloy socketed chisel of Late Bronze Age date and probable Ewart Park metalworking phase attribution c. 900-750 BC. In form it is very similar in appearance to socketed axes, though the small size of this object heavily infers that function as a chisel is far more likely. The socket mouth is widened and circular in plan, tapering slightly to the midpoint of the object before expanding outwards again towards the flared working end of the object. Preserved in good condition with an even greyish-coloured metal and encrustations covering some portions of the object, …

An incomplete copper-alloy possible awl dating to the Late Bronze Age. it is sub-square in cross section and tapers gradually towards one broken end; the opposite end has signs of old breaks as well. The possible awl is pitted and bent towards the thinner end due to recent damage. The date is 1150-800 BC. Length: 78.38 mm Width: 5.39 mm Thickness: 4.75 mm Weight: 8.81 g

Object type: PIN
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete cast copper-alloy Picardy type pin dating to the 'Ornament Horizon' (late Taunton/early Penard metalworking phases) of the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1400-1250 BC. The pin demonstrates a cup-shaped head with a deep recess in its upper edge designed to accomodate an insert (now missing), while the sides of the head towards its lower edge are decorated with two transverse collars and a repeating 'nicked' design at its base. Underneath the head, the circular-sectioned neck of the pin narrows abruptly before swelling prominently and then tapering steadily along its length to a sharp-…

Record ID: SF-68A728
Object type: AWL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete copper alloy awl, probably of late Bronze Age date. The shaft is sub-rectangular in section and tapers towards either end. One end is pointed, whilst the other is chisel shaped. It survives in poor condition with a corroded surface. It is difficult to date Bronze Age awls precisely. Ben Roberts (pers. comm.) suggests that they are likely to date to later in the period. The form changes little throughout time, however, and much later examples are also known. Many similar examples have been recorded on the PAS database, including SWYOR-220A7C from Yorkshire, HAMP-D070D5 from …

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete cast copper-alloy palstave axehead dating to the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1500-1150 BC. Only the midsection remains, with the cutting edge, stop-ridge, shoulders and side-flanges broken away in old damage. It is broadly triangular in plan and sub-rectangular in section, being heavily waisted at its mid-section before flaring outwards abruptly to form the lower section and cutting edge of the axehead. On both sides of the object close to its upper truncated edge a small central depression is visible, while heavily worn casting seams are visible on both the sides. The break a…
