Record ID: CORN-BD3DD5
Object type: INGOT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a cast copper alloy plano-convex ingot, sub-triangular in plan and profile, and plano-convex in section. The fragment rises up from its semi-circular outer edge, which is about 10 mm in thickness, to the centre of the ingot, where it is broken, and 27 mm in thickness or height. The two sides which look deliberately waisted may have been filed after sections were taken out of the ingot, and have since worn smooth and corroded to form rounded yet defined rectangular edges. There are also a few pits in the base, side and upper surface, which were probably formed from air pock…

Fragment of a cast copper alloy sword blade, rectangular in plan and profile and lozenge-shaped in section. Both cutting edges are worn and incomplete and the perpendicular edges to these are broken so that the original length of the blade is unknown as well as the position of this fragment along it, though it is at the end that tapers towards the tip, as any raised area has flattened out in section. The smooth dark green patina survives better on one face of the blade than the other, which has an uneven surface of raised areas of corrosion product. The lozenge-shaped section of the…

Object type: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy fragment of a collar from a socketed axe, semi-circular in plan, B-shaped in profile and in section. The collar is quite substantial at about 12 mm deep and 9 mm thick, and there is quite a deep indented area below it before the body of the axe begins with a raised ridge. Along this ridge at one side of the axe is the remains of the base of the side loop, which has worn into a point. The surface is pitted and some of the original patina remains on the collar but the projecting sections have become worn and corroded and there are patches of light green bronze disease.…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy fragment of a flanged blade from a socketed axe, semi-circular in plan, triangular in profile and lozenge-shaped in section. The blade edge is worn and incomplete so that it is only flanged on one side. The broken edge reveals an oblong aperture which is the end of the socket for the haft or handle of the axe. The original surface has mostly corroded away and there are patches of light green bronze disease. There is not enough detail to precisely date this fragment within the Late Bronze Age, but some comparanda are offered below. Pearce (1983) illustrates a simila…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy chisel, rectangular in plan and section, and triangular in profile. The socketed collar is missing and the blade end has been hammered flat so that is has flanged outwards slightly on both sides. The casting seam on both sides has been filed down, and there are now lumps of corrosion product following these lines which obscure the detail. The surface is generally corroded and pitted with patches of powdery bright green bronze disease. Pearce (1983) illustrates a similar socketed chisel from Bodmin, Cornwall on page 563, Plate 2, No.12 and another from Bovey Tracey,…

Incomplete cast copper alloy socketed axehead with defined slightly raised collar and the remains of a sideloop below it, faceted edges to the sides of the axe and a flanged blade. The collar is incomplete but the side that survives is about 20 mm long and shows that it flanges outwards slightly and would have had a rolled edge. The two base sections of the side loop that remain at either end are cruciform in section and are now worn smooth. The blade is triangular in plan and profile and the socket is sub-rectangular in section. The casting seams on the sides of the axe have been fil…

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy palstave or flanged axe blade, trapezoidal in plan, rhomboidal in profile and rectangular in section, at the broken end. The opposite blade end tapers to a rounded and damaged edge in profile. The blade is broad and incurved or inturned, instead of flanged, at the cutting edge and has the remains of what might be the tip of a moulded 'V' or shield at the broken end, but this is made more pronounced by corrosion, and it does not extend any further down the centre of the blade. On the opposite face there is a large cavity near the broken edge which was probably where a…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of greenstone cobble, triangular in plan, C-shaped in profile and semi-circular in section. The upper surface is rising at an 80-70 degree angle to the top of the stone, which would have been quite rounded, and the base has been ground flat, with two separate smooth-worn facets on the upper and lower faces, probably from use as a rubbing stone. This is one of a group of cobbles found in the same area, made of various materials, that were used as domestic artefacts such as mullers, rubbers and whetstones. All of these would be at home on a Middle Bronze Age settlement. Unfort…

Large granite cobble, used as a complete well-worn muller, oval in plan and plano-convex in profile and in section. The upper surface is convex with some wear and pitting and the base has been ground flat during its use as a muller, and then damaged more recently by the plough, judging by the gashes to the base and side of the stone. The sides also have several facets or shallow concavities due to damage. This is one of a group of cobbles found in the same area, made of various materials, that were used as domestic artefacts such as mullers, rubbers and whetstones. All of these would …

Fragment of the edge of a greenstone muller, triangular in plan, C-shaped in profile and sub-rectangular in section. The upper surface is worn but rising at a slight angle to suggest a convex top of the muller, the side edge is quite rounded, and the base has been ground flat through use. The profile of the fragment and the smooth base suggests it may have been part of a muller. This is one of a group of cobbles found in the same area, made of various materials, that were used as domestic artefacts such as mullers, rubbers and whetstones.

Broken large granite cobble, used as a muller, square in plan, oblong in profile and lentoid in section. The upper surface is worn smooth and slightly convex and the base surface has been ground flat, with one rounded edge and one broken edge, which is worn, suggesting that it happened in the past.

A quite thick, decorated wall sherd from a large urn of approximately 0.3 metres diameter. The exterior is damaged from being exposed to rain and frost in the plough soil. It would have had a smooth finish with only a few fine grits showing in order for the herringbone pattern of plaited cords to be impressed. The sherd is crumbling with a developed network of fine surface cracks and the decoration only discernable in oblique light.The orangey red surface oxidised colour extends part way through the fabric which then remains dark grey brown to just below the orangey interior surface. …
