A fragment of a Late Bronze Age copper-alloy gouge (1150 - 800 BC). The gouge consists of the rectangular shaped blade tip. It is possible that this gouge was socket, however there is no indication of a socket remaining. The blade is C-shaped in cross-section throughout its length and concave, with the hollow of the blade increasing towards the cutting-edge. The sides of the blade are parallel and the cutting-edge is rounded and there is a visible casting-seam present on one side of the object. The break is semi-circular in cross-section and the reverse of the gouge is rounded. The…

A fragment of copper alloy gouge.The tapering tip only remaining. The remaining shaft of the gouge is solid and oval in cross section. It tapers to a slightly grooved, wedge shape with a rounded end. The groove is shallow and 25 mm long. The surface of the gouge is a dark grey-green with a few patches of lighter green corrosion. Date: Late Bronze Age - c. 1000 to 800 BC Dimensions: 45.6 mm x 12.2 mm x 10.7 mm Weight: 16.44 g Similar to SWYOR-FCB525 which is socketed. It is possible this example was also socketed.
