A near complete copper alloy socketed gouge corresponding to Needham's (1996) Period 7, and dated to c. 950 - 750BC The remaining portion is a short length of the socket with a tapered U-shaped blade. The piece is distinctly pointed oval in cross section with slight projecting ridges running down each side, probably the remains of casting flashes. The object tapers in width and thickness from its socket to a rounded cutting/gouging edge which is concave on one of its surfaces. The gouging edge has worn well rounded chips at its tip and on one edge. The object bulges slightly at the p…

An incomplete copper alloy socketed gouge of late Bronze Age date, c.1100 - 650 BC. 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 16.4mm, interior diameter of 11.5mm and is 21.3mm 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. This gouge is most likely of Wilberton, Ewart Park or Llyn Fawr metalworking, phases which correspond…

Incomplete cast copper alloy socketed gouge, rectangular in plan, lozenge-shaped in profile with a circular socket in section, with faint vertical striations preserved in the groove which are probably remnants of use (Matt Knight pers comm). The circular socketed end is broken and partly missing, with an internal diameter of 13 mm at the broken edge, and the cutting edge is worn, partly through use, with its orginal surface missing. The gouge tapers in profile from the open end to a point at the cutting edge which is curved into a semi-circle so that it can gouge out sections of wood o…

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…

Copper Alloy Late Bronze Age socketed gouge. The gouge has a circular mouth (17mm outside diameter) and single raised flanged collar at the opening. In plan it tapers over the majority of its 84.5mm length but flares out in the final 15mm to form a C-shaped cross-section cutting edge. The cutting edge extends back in a V-shaped flute to restore the full circular section around 12mm short of the mouth of the gouge. Casting seams are evident on either side of the gouge which are set in the horizontal plane when the flute is placed uppermost. The socket contains extensive remains of the …

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…

A complete copper alloy socketed gouge. The upper part and socket are circualr in cross section. The socket is 15.2 mm in internal diameter and approiimately 50 mm in depth. Around the socket is a thick, rounded collar. The gouge tapers slightly and becomes C-shaped in cross section towards the cutting edge. There is casting line along each side. The cutting edge is slightly lopsided, probably as a result of use wear.

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…

A nearly complete cast copper-alloy socketed gouge dating to c. 1000 to 650 BC. The gouge is oval in cross section and narrows from the base to the tip. On both sides are visible small ribs, residue of the casting process. The tip of the object is thinner than the body and is U-shape in cross section with a central groove that is 33 mm in length and narrows down through the body, disappearing before reaching the base. It is 13.66 at the cutting edge and widens to 18.74 at the socket. The gouge has not been finished as elements from the casting process have not been removed. According …
