Record ID: DEV-45CEA1
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper of probable Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 4000-800 BC. A Broadly piriform secondary flake of black/brown flint, triangular in cross section and with c. 10% of the dorsal face covered with cortex at the distal end. Two parallel removal scars survive on the dorsal face. A relatively pronounced bulb of percussion is present at the proximal end of the ventral face, the striking platform has been worked away by a series of crude, abruptly angled hinged removals. There is a central, longitudinally aligned hinged removal at the proximal end of the dorsal face, possibly thin…

County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy "Moustache-shaped" object probably of Middle Bronze Age to Middle Iron Age date (1500-300 BC). The object consists of two pointed drop-shaped elements (one point partially lost), D-shaped in cross-section and joined at their widest point, by a longitudinally recessed oval neck. There are multiple longitudinal grooves on the upper face on both domed sides of the object, the tapering lower parts are plain. The two moustache tips or prongs flare slightly outwards and terminate with a small rounded knop. The central neck section of the object is plain and undecor…

Object type: CASTING WASTE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Isle of Anglesey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy possible casting jet of possible Bronze Age, circa 950-750 BC. The object is broadly rectangular in plan. The upper edge is flat and the underside has a 'U' shaped concave recess. Two circular-sectioned runners project from the upper edge of the object. The runners protrude beyond th eedges of the main body. The object has a mid-green patina with an abraded and pitted surface with areas of active corrosion. Casting jets are waste products which form at the top of a two-piece clay mould when the molten metal has filled the object-shaped void below. The object measure…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper-alloy Bronze Age socketed spear head fragment. Broken along the vertical plane through the centre of the socket and blade, the remaining spear fragment is compose of one half of the likely original artefact. Dating from the Middle to Late Bronze Age c. 1500 - 800 BC. The blade and socket is roughly triangular in profile and tapers in thickness from socketed central portion to the thin blade edge. The shape of the item in plan also tapers slightly from a narrow pointed end, which would reflect the blade tip, to a wider portion on the opposite edge. For a similar (complete…

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete copper-alloy, flanged axehead, dating from the final phase of the Early to the earliest Middle Bronze Age (c. 2000 - 1500 BC). Possibly of Arreton type dated to Early Bronze Age III, of metalworking stage V, which corresponds to Needham's (1996) Period 3 circa 2000 - 1700 BC or possibly of a Central European type known as a 'Randleistenbeil' dating to a similar period of time (Huegelgraeber-Bronzezeit Reinecke A/B) Description: The axehead survives as the blade end and about a third of its original length. It has flanged parallel sides whcih runs along the back of the bl…

Object type: RAPIER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy rapier dating from the Middle to Late Bronze Age (c. 1400 - 1100 BC). The rapier is of the notched-butt type having a butt that is trapezoid in form with shoulders that curve inwards to the narrow blade. Two rivet holes through the butt show how the blade was secured into a wooden or bone handle; one of the notches still retains its copper alloy rivet which is cylindrical with an expanded domed head at either terminal. The blade is mostly straight and only tapers towards the point. A prominant midrib can be seen down the length of the blade, which has been bent in an…

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Middle Bronze Age cast copper-alloy palstave (axehead) of unlooped type .The palstave is corroded, with some losses at its extremities. The septum is thinner than the blade, 7.5mm thick, indicating that this is a palstave rather than an earlier flanged axe (Schmidt and Burgess 1981, 115). The flanges gradually widen (increase in height) from the butt to the stop to a maximum of 26.7mm, creating a triangular shape in profile. The stop is angled forwards slightly at its centre and is thicker than the flanges at the centre. It is 10.6mm bove the septum on one side, 9.2mm on the other. T…

Dark chocolate brown flint scraper. A thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike, and with a prominent bulb and adjacent concavity on its ventral surface. This distinctive non-local material is usually associated with objects of an earlier date than is suggested by the form and perfunctory finish of this object. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 39.2mm, Width: 37.7mm, Thickness: 13.0mm, Weight: 19.76gms

Dark brown flint scraper. A thick flake with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, with a positive hinge fracture to one side. The ventral surface is trimmed by covering angled scalar hard hammer retouch. The thin edges of the tool are battered, presumably by its use, and a series of chips appearing on both surfaces may suggest recurrent edge-on impact was a feature of this use. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 35.8mm, Width: 36.5mm, Thickness: 10.1mm, Weight: 12.66gms

Grey-brown flint scraper. An irregular chunk with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by multi-directional hard hammer strike, and with a marked concavity occupying most of its ventral surface. Smaller flakes may have been removed by hard hammer strike from the ventral aspect, though these scars might include later adventitious damage. Short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows one curved end, possibly as reworking of a discarded and cruder tool. Suggested date: Early to Middle Bronze Age, 2350-1000 BC.

Dark grey flint possible scraper. A small fragment of a nodule, of plano-convex form, but with a naturally smooth dorsal surface rather than one facetted by knapping. . The ventral surface is flat. One edge in particular bears signs of battering, and the rest of the edge is intermittently chipped. Patches of misty patina may suggest the object has endured a limited period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

Object type: CASTING WASTE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Doncaster
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy (bronze) casting waste of uncertain date; due to the lack of context and the continuation of casting styles this object could be dated from Bronze Age - Roman period (c. 1500 BC - 450 AD). The casting waste is broadly conical in shape.The base of the object is uneven and rough surface.The other sides of the object are basically smooth and taper to a narrow runner. The casting waste is a dark green colour with an even well formed patina that covers all surfaces. Length: 24.51mm; width: 26.57mm; thickness: 17.67mm; weight: 22g.

Grey flint scraper. A thumbnail scraper with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface. Covering angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved edge. A pair of thin flakes was trimmed from the ventral surface, trimming the bulb. Misty patina patches have developed over all struck surfaces, indicating the object has subsequently endured exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

Pale grey-buff flint, scraper. A thumbnail scraper with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a wavy ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved end. Misty white patina on struck surfaces may suggest the object was exposed to a calcareous environment after its deposition; this is removed in small patches by probably recent impacts.
