An incomplete cast copper-alloy fragment originating from a probable Ewart Park socketed gouge of Late Bronze Age date, c. 1000-800 BC. Only the lower edge of the gouge survives, consisting the working end of the object, with almost all of its upper socketed section broken away in old damage. It is circular in section, tapering to form a chisel-like edge with a broadly 'V' shaped deep recess in one side. Casting seams are visible on both sides of the object, though these are now somewhat eroded. Preserved in fair condition with an even greenish patina, it survives to a length of 33.31m…

A fragment of a copper alloy late Bronze Age socketed gouge. Only the tip of the blade end survives. This is crescent-shaped in cross-section, narrowing towards the outer blade end and expanding at the broken inner socket end. There is a circular indendation in the centre of the inner end, which is the remains of the inner end of socket. The surface of the metal is corroded and the break is well worn, but races of dark green patina survive on both faces. According to Pearce (1983, 43), socketed gouges 'appear to have begun in the Wilburton phase, and continued as part of the tool…

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.
