A socketed gouge with circular mouth which narrows to a body which is circular in section, and flares widely and flattens to form a deep almost U-shaped scoop at the blade. There does not appear to be any wear and the casting seams although well finished are un-worn. Part of a hoard of eleven implements.

Small fragment from the mouth of a copper-alloy socketed object. The socket is rounded and there is a slight mouth moulding. The fragment is too flimsy to have come from a socketed axe; it is probably from a socketed gouge or a leather worker's knife. There is a medium/dark green/grey patina all over the fragment, including the worn breaks, with frequent small patches of pale green invasive corrosion products. Surviving length 16.5 mm, surviving width 15 mm, maximum thickness thickness (at moulding) 3 mm, weight 2.95g. Late Bronze Age.

Late Bronze Age socketed gouge, probably of Ewart Park (c. 950 - 750 BC) metalworking tradition. The gouge is of circular mouth section and has a low-raised collar, which is very slightly concave and is 10mm deep from the mouth. The casting seams are prominent on both sides and are likely to have been finished by hammering. The sides are straight and diverge slightly at the blade. Sharpening striations are visible on both of the blade faces. The striations are angled across the blade, towards the sides on the front (gouged) face, and are positioned along the blade circumference on the…

County: West Sussex

A copper alloy gouge. This has been cast, and then the blade was probably hammered to harden it before sharpening. The artefact is incomplete, with only the blade end surviving; the socket has been lost or removed in the past. The faces are roughly sub-rectangular; at the top it is 14.7mm wide, widening to 15.34mm at the blade; the tool has a wedge shape when seen from the side. It is loosely semicircular in cross-section. The blade edge is rounded rather than straight. There is a hollow in the other end, which would have been the base of the original socket. The original surface has v…

Late Bronze Age copper alloy socketed gouge. The socketed gouge dates to the Late Bronze Age, c. 1100-750BC and dates to the Wilburton-Ewart Park metalworking phases (Needham et al. 1997), corresponding to Needham's (1996) Period's 6-7. The gouge is comparatively short, with an overall length of 55.6mm. The socket is oval with an external width (across the blade) of 21.3mm and an external height of 19.7mm (internal: 17.7 x 16.6mm). The mouth of the gouge is plain, and 2.4mm beneath the mouth is a square collar moulding, with a width of 2mm. The sides of the gouge are slightly conca…

The blade edge proper is heavily corroded and worn. The original surface has virtually all been eroded away. The surface is rough, with a light greyish-green colour, and brown patches. This artefact probably …

Cast copper alloy Late Bronze Age socketed gouge, with part of the wooden handle surviving. The gouge itself is worn, possibly from water action, and is incomplete, most of the mouth having broken off. There are a pair of faint incised transverse lines, presumably decoration, just below the mid- way point, around the back of the gouge. The gouge measures 72.36mm in length, 18.14mm-20.07mm in width and it weighs 54g. The wooden handle, which is shaped to fit the socket is 73.15mm long, 12.75mm-13.43mm wide and weighs 7g. When the handle is inserted into the socket the combined obje…

In 1984 a Founders Hoard of late Bronze Age metal work was unearthed. The Hoard consisted of eight objects. Two of the objects join together to form what could be part of a bronze bowl or caldron; however the piece could simply be a fragment of metal working debris. The Hoard consists of the following: 1) A fragment of a socketed axe SUSS-8F4D33 (found within the metal detectorists collection - it was not kept with the rest of the hoard, but is likely to be from the same find site, the detectorist is deceased). 2) Two fragments of a bronze bowl or caldron or possibly metal workin…

A Late Bronze Age socketed gouge made from cast copper alloy. The gouge is complete, but the surface is in poor condition. Approximately half of the patina remains otherwise the surface is pitted and has areas of corrosion. The patina is a mottled dark green colour. The gouge is a sub-rectangle in plan, with the socketed terminal being slightly flared. It measures 95.41mm long and weighs 74.5g. The socket is circular in section, 13.85mm diameter, and tapers in the internal diameter. The opposite terminal, the blade edge is ‘C’ shaped in section. The blade is the terminal of a elong…

Late Bronze age socketed gouge, 66.5mm long and 14mm in diameter. The object is in fair condition with a brown patina and weighs 28.41 grams. The object is circular at one end and for three quarters of its length it tapers gradually, becoming crescentic in section with a curved edge. The section is formed of two distinct ridges which run along its length before converging and disappearing into the now circular body. The circular end of the object is hollow, forming a socket with a wall 5mm thick, whilst the rest is solid. There is a deep crescent shaped area missing from the socket, w…
