(c. 2500 - 1500 BC) The object is composed of a light grey flint that is sub-triangular in plan and cross section. There is a pointed tip at the distal end and at the proximal end a striking platform where some short flakes have been removed to dress the platform. There are multi directional removal scars across the dorsal surface and a raised central arris runs along the lower 2/3 of its length. There is a short area of semi- abrubt retouch near the point and abrubt blunting retouc…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy fragment of a blade, possibly a rapier, dating to the Bronze Age (c. 1500-1200 BC). The fragment is rectangular in plan and lozenge-shape in cross section - this being typical of the Bronze Age. The edges of the blade are narrow, rounded slightly and uneven, with minor patches of damage in places. The corners are also rounded. The shape of the blade is not quite parallel with one end being slightly wider than the other, but overall it has a relatively even profile. Both surfaces have a mid-brown patina while the edges are a mid-green. The blade measures …

Copper alloy fragment, 34.7mm in length and narrowing from 16.1mm to 11.9mm. The wide end is square and faceted; the remainded of the fragment has an asymetric trapezoidal profile, with a prominant ridge up to 4.6mm thick down one side of the front. The rear is flat and the object demonstrates a slight curve. The flat back and asymetrical profile suggest this to possibly represent a fragment of a Bronze Age tool such as a sickle or knife blade.

A cast copper alloy probable dagger or knife dating to the Late Bronze Age. The blade is faintly triangular in plan but overall is rectangular, slender and with a lozenge-shaped (pointed oval) cross-section. The blade has a raised V-shaped rib towards the top, probably indicating the remains shoulders. The blade is broken down each lateral edge which is jagged. This appears to be a cut down object, possibly a rapier that has been reconditioned but possibly unfinished. A very similar exmaple, with tang and piercing, has been recorded from Bucknell, Oxfordshire (BERK-80BA1E). A similar …

An incomplete copper alloy bladed weapon, possibly a knife or dagger dating from the Middle to Late Bronze Age (c. 1400-800 BC). The blade fragment consists of part of the tang, which is under half-complete, broken through a central perforation, possibly a rivet to secure the tang to the weapon handle. There is a large notch in one side of the tang, which would have presumably been repeated on the opposing edge. Below the notch the blade begins to taper in width to the break; all breaks appear ancient. The blade has a nearly flat cross section. This object may have been reworked (incl…
