Bag-shaped dagger scabbard chape with three perforations through both faces (five remain blocked by a ferrous deposit). Each perforation lies in the centre of a circular mark on the outer face, probably the result of the drilling process rather than a purposefully made ring. Unusually the mouth is almost straight rather than markedly concave, e.g. an example from Reach, Cambridgeshire (Inventaria Archaeologica (1956) GB 17 3 (3) no. 20). Two examples with pairs of triple perforations but concave mouths come from Quarley, Hants and Norton, Northants (PAS HAMP-095061 and NARC-5DEF37). B…

Fragment of Late Bronze Age scabbard chape, cast. A tapering hollow object, both ends missing. The two wide faces are concave on either side of a median arris. Length 40mm, maximum external width 15.5mm, maximum internal width 13.5mm.

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete bronze bag-shaped chape with two peg holes, measuring 18mm in height, 37mm in width and 10mm in thickness. Three transverse grooves decorated the base of both faces of this chape. One face is incomplete due to ancient, and some more modern, breaks down to the peg hole. The surface condition is reasonably good and patinated dark grey/green with a slight silvery sheen in places. There are areas of pocking and surface loss with paler green corrosion products visible. The top edge of the chape is less pronounced in comparison to other East Anglian examples, e.g those in …
