Record ID: SF-2C35D8
Object type: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete cast copper-alloy socketed axehead dating to the Late Bronze Age, c. 1000-800 BC. The axe is of South-Eastern type, probably attributable to the Ewart Park metalworking phase. It has a sub-circular sectioned socket and is completely undecorated except for a moulded ridge or collar directly below the socket aperture. One side of the axehead demonstrates an integrally cast loop concurrent with a prominent casting seam, the latter being mirrored on its opposing side. An irregular oblique truncation broadly at the mid-point of the axehead has removed the lower body and cutti…

Object type: PIN
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete cast copper-alloy quoit-headed pin dating to the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1500-1200 BC. The pin consists of a flat circular head with a large central aperture, demonstrating small decorative incisions or notches radiating from its inner edge. The bottom of the head transitions into a circular-sectioned shank, which extends downwards and eventually tapers to a sharp point, initially curving outwards but then returning back on itself as a result of post-depositional distortion. Preserved in very good condition with an even greenish and brown patina, the pin measures 82.70mm long…

Description: A small hoard of alloy Late Bronze Age metalwork, consisting of three incomplete and fragmentary socketed axes and five fragments of metalworking debris. One axe survives in better condition than the others, complete but for a missing section of the socket. The remaining portion of the socket is rectangular in cross-section and there is a raised rim around its outer end. Further moulding may be visible on each face behind this rim, but this is obscured by damage and corrosion. Extending along one side behind the socket rim is a low, integral, semi-circular loop. There is…
