In 1984 a Founders Hoard of mid – 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 meta…

A jet with shaped channels derived from a careful operation of casting in bronze. The puddled surface presents a blackish-brown patina overlying a thick layer of verdegris. This surface is ovate, some 35x39mm, but with one area of the oval circumference omitted. The underside of this 'puddle' is convex, representing the depression in the clay or other mould material which was filled with molten metal. From this convex surface proceed or depend two symmetrical 'horns' or legs, curving outward and away from each other, ovoid in section and about 13mm in girth, terminating in oblique vert…

A fragment of late Bronze Age plate scrap (ingot). C. 1000 - 800 BC. The fragment has a smooth flat inside surface with a slightly curved inside edge on its horizontal plane. It is also slightly curved across the horizontal inside surface making it very slightly curved in shape. Running vertically on its outside surface from the smallest bottom edge to the widest edge, there is a slightly uneven 5.60 mm raised rib decoration that runs the length of the fragment, with a smaller rib (3.22mm) running horizontally across the thicker rib at 5.22 mm from the fractured lea…

A lump of solidified molton copper. It has a flat base and a domed top. It has been cut on two, opposite sides; one is a straighter, clean cut; and there is evidence of sooting to three sides. The object is 32.8mm long, 20.5mmwide and 17.8mm thick. It weighs 47.71gms. This was part of either a small ingot or a lump of molton copper formed in something like a crucible. It was probably carried in this form from elsewhere as travelling metal workers and traders would often carry lumps of metal around for forming on the site where objects were needed. It's lack of distincive form makes i…

A large lump of copper, it's rounded appearence suggests it has cooled from molton metal in a crucible or other mould. One side is almost flat, the top is domed and the sides rounded, it may originally have been oval as it appears to have been cut on one face, the cut is now worn. It may have been made on site or have been carried here for metal working. It is difficult to give this item an exact date although study of the composition might help, a date of Bronze Age - post-medieval has thus been given although it is likely to sit within the earlier part of this range. It is 38.8mm l…

Three fragments of copper alloy resultant from metal working. 1) A cast copper alloy casting jet or sprue with a flat, oval shaped upper surface that is rough to the touch. Two parallel casting projections are visible on the opposite face, both are oval in section. The object measures 30.95mm in length, 24.01mm in width, 22.60mm in height, and weighs 43.62g. This example could date from any period between the Bronze Age and Medieval periods, with comparable examples noted in Suffolk on the PAS database (SF-C9AED6 and SF-9FFB87). 2) A small fragment of copper alloy that is sub-ova…

Five pieces of copper alloy of various size. The pieces were found over 20 years ago near Bronze Age items including axes which were previously on display in Arundel Museum and a chisel (SUSS-00F4DA). Ben Roberts (Curator of Bronze Age material, British Museum) commented that none of the five were distincly Bronze Age in form and all of them may be Bronze Age or equally may be later pieces. They all appear to have been formed from molton copper alloy. Piece 1: roughly oval plano-convex piece with a rough, flat bottom and slightly smoother domed top. One edge has been cut off flat in…
