Record ID: CAM-DC2F32
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper-alloy socketed sickle blade of Bronze Age date. Weight is 12.08g, length of the fragment is 46.69mm, width is 16.73mm and thickness is 3.59mm. The cross section is oval or a sub lozenge. The edges are quite chewed, but Cyril Fox lists parallels from the River Thames (Tilehurst, Berks.; Plate XXIV, no 5), Norwich (Norfolk, Plate XXVI, no. 12) which have a similar straight blade. Due to the fragmentary remains of this blade it is impossible to determine whether the sickle was laterally or vertically socketed. Most of these socketed sickles are part of the Ewart Pa…

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Spearhead, plain leaf-shaped head, wings ribless with no grooves, and loops low down on the socket. Length 175 mm, maximum width of blade 58 mm, maximum diameter of shaft 20 mm, maximum width of loops 26 mm. The golden colour suggests it may be have been deposited in a wet context, rather than in peat where a black/brown patina might be expected (see Fontijn 2002, pp.40-41). Greenwell & Brewis (1909) Type IV, probably corresponding to Needham's (1996) Period 5, Pennard metalworking phase, dating to the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1500-1150 BC, or possibly early Late Bronze Age.

Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A corroded and abraded cast copper-alloy flat axehead of Early Bronze Age date. This small example is from the earliest bronze working traditions, dating from the centuries after c. 2000 BC. The blade terminates in a rounded cutting edge. Bevelling to create the edge is gradual. Beyond the edge the object narrows to a width of 16.65mm and is at its thickest, 7.6mm. The object remains a fairly constant width to the butt. It narrows very gradually, and then more obviously in the quarter at the butt end. The axehead has a rectangular cross-section with no side flanges as such; the surf…

County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A corroded and worn fragment of a middle to late Bronze Age copper-alloy rapier blade, dating to c.1300 BC - 900 BC. The fragment is broadly rectangular in plan but tapers slightly throughout, and is lentoid in section with very narrowed edges. These edges are worn and chipped and possibly not indicative of the original cutting edges. This blade fragment measures 28.5mm long, 25.3mm wide, 5.4mm thick and weighs 16.38 grams.

Object type: BURNT FLINT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of burnt flint. There is some evidence of working on the flint nodule but the original form is now not clear due to the fracturing after burning. The burning has mostly obscured the original colour. Burning flint after working is a feature of Bronze Age material in particular. It weighs 4.4 grams.

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete cast copper alloy spearhead. The spear head has a long, slender triangular blade, with a raised midrib resulting in a lozenge-shaped cross section. Beneath the blade is a round collar from which protrudes in integral tang; initially circular in section it quickly turns square before tapering to a flattened point. There is the remains of a possible glue-like substance just beneath the collar. The spear head has a slight nick out of one of the blade wings but otherwise it is in very good condition. It is almost certain that this spearhead is not of British origin (Richard Dav…

Record ID: NLM-1BEDD2
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint with cortex Possible Scraper, reused as a Gunflint, as postulated by the finder. Sub-rectangular flint, possibly shaped in Prehistory as a scraper or core to judge from the extent of light patination on three angular sides - the fourth side being cortex. Two of the angular sides bear impact scars which post-date the patina, showing these edges of the object to have been struck. The finder suggests this object may have been pressed into service as an ad hoc gunflint - it bears scant relation in material or finish to a professionally manufactured gunflint. Suggested date: pos…

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment (about 75%) of a knapped flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating from the Late Neolithic to Middle Bronze Age (c. 2500 BC - c.1150 BC). The arrowhead is bifacially worked and sub-triangular in plan. The arrowhead originally had two round ended notches in the base, flanking the central tang with a barb at either side. One barb is missing the tip to a break, the other is completely missing due to a large break which has also damaged the side of the tang. The point is also missing due to a break. The tang appears to be distinctly wider and longer than the barb with a square en…
