Copper alloy Bronze Age gouge found as a single find. It has a circular mouth and a flat top, the mouth and socket are damaged. There is also damage or wear on the gouge furrow, largely caused by bronze disease but also faint striations can be seen in the furrow, possibly indicating sharpening. The gouge survives in a very good condition and much of the well-finished original surface still survives. The mouth of the socket is also experiencing some active corrosion; bronze disease is affecting the metal. The majority of the gouge is still covered with the original surface, which has a…

An incomplete copper alloy socketed gouge of late Bronze Age date. The remaining portion is a length of the hollow socket with a tapered U-shaped blade terminal to one end. The opposite end terminates in a worn break. The socket is circular with an exterior diameter of 15.6mm, interior diameter of 12.1mm and is 20.7mm deep. From the socket the blade tapers to a rounded cutting/gouging edge which is concave to one side of the body. The gouging edge is extremely worn.

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 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…
