Record ID: PUBLIC-D7E4AA
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A roughly crescent shaped secondary flake, mottled grey/brown in colour. The flake is probably formed on a piece of secondary debitage. There is around 70% cortex remaining on the dorsal side. The area of the flake covered in cortex has a sub-oval indentation measuring roughly 18mm x 8mm. The remaining area of the dorsal side is covered with extensive, scaled, low angle flaking, forming a side scraper on the left mesal. The ventral face is smooth with a low bulb of percussion, with ripple lines emanating from it. The scraper is probably dated to the early to middle Bronze Age. Lengt…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Toffee coloured flint with cortex debitage. A thick flake with a tiny striking platform and a large bulb of percussion at one end of its ventral surface. A possible run of short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect occurs on one part of one side, where the cortex has been trimmed. The finder kindly suggests this may be of Mesolithic or even Palaeolithic date, but the tint of the flint does not appear altered by the passage of the significant period this would require so this reporter would favour a more recent date. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 43.…

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy palstave axe. Cast axehead or sub-rectangular form with an expanded crescentic or lunate cutting edge. The object is of a lentoid profile with rounded sides and a wedge shaped flattened butt; the profile is reminiscent of the graceful form of Neolithic polished stone axes, and the form of the cutting edge also reflects these. A pair of longitudinal flanges pass between the butt and the flaring of the blade on either side, standing 2.8mm proud of the surface of the axe. Patches of glossy surface patina appear, though more has been lost than is retained. The cutting edge is …

County: Flintshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy fragment of a probable spearhead. Dating is difficult due to the fragmentary nature of the object but is likely to be late Middle Bronze age or Late Bronze Age (c. 1500-700BC). The object has a socket that is circular in section tapering towards the point, which is now missing. The surviving blade is diamond-shaped in section. The surface of the object is heavily pitted and none of the original surface survives. It has a dark brown patina. Length: 49.4mm; width: 13.5mm; thickness: 9.39mm; weight; 11g

A fragment of a probable Middle to Late Bronze Age axe. The axe is broken roughly at either end, revealing a lozenge-shaped profile, narrower at the wider end of the axe, possibly where it thins towards the cutting edge. There is a pronounced casting line on one of the side, the surface otherwise worn but undamaged.

County: Wiltshire

Copper alloy Bronze Age blade fragment. This is the tip of the blade and has a low oval cross-section with tapered blades on either side. The front profile narrows to the tip where there is a rounded point. The back end is truncated making it making it difficult to be certain whether this item is from a spear of knife, although the latter is the most likely. This artefact dates to the middle to late Bronze Age.

County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete possible Bronze Age Awl, potentially datign to c 1150 - 800 BC. It consists of a metal rod, rectangular in cross section, with a wedge shaped, round ended, terminal at one end, and a pointed end at the other. The rod tapers towards each end. Dimensions: 44.4mm in length; c 5mm x c 4mm across the section. It weighs 3.42g. It is difficult to date such a non-diagnostic item, and although it might possibly be bronze age in date (as may be suggested by the patina) it could equally be later. cf. DOR-3F8E48 for similar object recorded on this database.

A complete and hardly worn cast copper alloy socketed and side looped spearhead dating to the Taunton phase of the Middle Bronze Age date (c. 1400-1250 BC). The spearhead has a short but slender kite-shaped blade with rounded shoulders. The edges are bevelled and the blade is still very sharp. Fine filing or polishing striations can be seen all over both sides of the blade. The socket is circular and tapers from the open mouth in to the shaft between the blade's wings. There are two lozenge-shaped, undrilled 'loops' located equidistantly between the socket mouth and the blade. The mout…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper alloy socketed axehead of late Bronze Age date, c. 1000 - 800BC. The fragment is the blade end of the axehead which is trapezoidal in shape with a worn cutting edge and flared rounded corners. The cross-section is rectangular and the breaks are old and worn. The metal has a dark green patina and is worn. The fragment is 49.9mm long, 35.8mm wide, 15.3mm thick and weighs 55.9g. Due to the incomplete nature of the axehead it is not possible to ascribe it to a particular type series and it has therefore been dated broadly as late Bronze Age in date circa 1000 - 800BC.

A cast copper alloy so-called 'moustache-shaped' object dating from the Middle Bronze Age to Iron Age. This is probably approximately half of a double moustache-shaped fitting. The object is three-dimensional oval in plan and D-shaped in cross section with a hollow back and could also be described as 'slug shaped'. It tapers evenly at both ends to a relatively rounded terminals. One appears complete and the other appears to have a patinated, uneven break at the tip, probably at the site of the connection to the other half of the moustache. The upper surfaces are decorated with cast c…

A complete though worn copper-alloy awl of probable late Bronze Age date, c. 1000 - 800 BC. The object is sub-square in section at the middle and widest point tapering to worn rounded points to either end. The object is undecorated. The metal has a mid-green patina and is worn. The object is 51.6mm long, 6.2mm wide, 6.1mm thick and weighs 5.2g. Plain copper alloy awls are hard to date precisely but examples of this form are thought to have been introduced in the Bronze Age (2150-800 BC) with most being Late Bronze Age in date (1000-800 BC).
