Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete and small copper-alloy blade of Bronze Age date, probably a knife. Part of the butt end and the blade survive, the tip of both ends missing due to old breaks. The butt end is rectangular in form, oval sectioned and has the remains of two circular rivet holes at the incomplete end. On each side it has two semi-circular notches. The blade is short, triangular in form, oval sectioned and tapers towards a now missing tip. All surfaces have a worn and pitted dark brown patina that shows signs of corrosion in places. It measures 57.28mm in length, 18.43mm in width, 2.18mm in th…

A broad copper alloy blade tip, presently of sub-triangular form presumably from a 'knife dagger' but deriving from a much larger grooved blade. It measures 64mm in length and 30mm in width. It has a slight midrib near to the existing tip, but a relatively flat cross-section beneath. The tip is rounded and the remaining section of the butt is convex but largely fragmented. The existing knife is very similar to a series of small knife-daggers in barrow burials of the early Bronze Age from circa 2200BC Beaker and collared urn associations) to circa 1400 BC (Arreton phase). The groov…

Record ID: SF-F21614
Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A bronze blade fragment, probably from a knife or rapier. Measuring 53.5mm in length, 19.5mm in width and 4mm in thickness. This fragment is quite narrow with an even elliptical cross-section. The end of the tip and most of the body/haft end are missing, due to old breaks. The surface and edges of the fragment are all affected by corrosion so original surfaces are all now lost. There is no obvious evidence of hammer breakage. This knife/rapier fragment is most likely to be middle of late Bronze Age in date.

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A copper-alloy fragment of a slightly flanged tang and blade, probably from a tanged knife. The tang narrows towards the butt end and is flat apart from slightly raised edge flanges. The edges of the tang are squared in section. The junction between the tang and the blade is badly damaged, there is a suggestion of two small side notches on one edge but these are probably due to damage. The blade is mostly missing, and bent at the break, which may be recent. The butt of the balde is elliptcial in section and the buttend is missing due to an ancient break. Condition otherwise is quite p…

An incomplete copper-alloy knife, 52mm in length 21mm in width and 3mm thick. This knife is tanged and double-edged and has its tip and part of the tang missing, due to ancient breaks, at the tang the break is irregular and elatively sharp edged and at the tip the break is rounded, worn and smooth. The blade form is sub-triangular with concave edges and it has a lozenge-shaped cross-section. There are concave possible 'side notches' at the base of the blade leaving a relatively narrow tang which is broken at this point, though it is thin suggesting only a slight loss. The surface cond…
