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 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 copper alloy socketed gouge dating to the Late Bronze Age betweem c. 1150 and c. 800 BC. The gouge possesses a circular section socket and body which becomes hemispherical in section to form a flaring curved blade edge. Very little of the original metal surface remains and the object possesses a flaky green patina. The gouge measures 86mm in length and has a diameter of 16mm at the socket and 15mm in width at the gouge end. Two similar examples are illustrated in Watson, P, 1993, ‘Catalogue of British and European Prehistoric Metalwork in Birmingham City Museums’, BAR British …

County: Buckinghamshire

An incomplete cast copper-alloy socketed gouge of late Bronze Age. Although relatively rare finds, there are a few examples of similar artefacts recorded on the PAS database, most from Wales and the midlands - see, for example, NMGW-52C2A3, NMGW-75FE70, NMS-817C97, LEIC-4AC3D3 and WMID-634197. Socketed gouges are late Bronze Age in date. They are generally thought to be a product of the Wilburton phase of c.1150-950BC, or of the Ewart Park phase of c. 950-750BC; most were probably made between c. 1000 and 800BC. In comparison to many of the aforementioned examples, the gouge is …

Copper alloy socketed gouge. The mouth of the socket is circular and there is some damage to it. The socket is empty. The gouge tapers towards the cutting edge and has a gently curved sectioned furrow. There is no sign of wear in the furrow, but there is some damage or wear at the working edge. The edge is flattened. Along each side, running longitudinally is a casting line, the sprues of which have been trimmed. The surface of the gouge is in generally good condition, retaining a greyish shiny patina, suggesting a tin component to the alloy. Date: Late Bronze age - c 1150 Bc to 800 B…

Incomplete fragment of a cast bronze (copper alloy) socketed gouge of probable Late Bronze Age date (c. 1100 – 650 BC). It is likely that this tool is from the Wilberton, Ewart Park or Llyn Fawr metalworking, phases which correspond to Needham’s (1996) Period’s 6 - 8. The gouge measures: 59.5mm length, 17.4mm width, 12.9mm thick. The socket has a maximum diameter across the break of 12.9mm. The gouge weighs 25.28 grams. As stated the gouge is incomplete, having been broken across the socket and also the tip of the blade. This damage has removed most of the typological features…

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…
