An incomplete Middle to Late Bronze Age copper alloy sickle, probably dating to c. 1500-800 BC. The surviving fragment comprises a sub-triangular, curving section of the blade, tapering into an abraded point at the tip. Both edges are similarly abraded. The blade is lenticular in cross section, with a central ridge on both faces, tapering into the edges. The blade is truncated by an old break. Dimensions: length 49.7mm; width 19.2mm; thickness 3.5mm; weight 8.00g. cf. a similar, but more complete sickle found at Edington Burtle (Pearce 1983: 512-513, no. 648). The fragment is too inc…

A fragment of a copper alloy, Late Bronze Age blade, possibly from a sickle, 1250-900 BC. The object is composed of a tapering curve of metal, with a central mid rib that runs the length of the object. Either side of the mid rib the object tapers gently in cross section to form the blades. The object has an even green patina all over. Similar complete sickles can be found in Savory 1980 fig.46 no.6 and 7. These are dated to the late Bronze Age and were from a hoard near Llynfawr, Glam.

Cast copper alloy sickle length 116mm, width 26mm. Curved ridge runs down the spine of the blade on the dorsal edge of the sickle, the blade runs three quarter of the length of the object from the tip (which is missing). There is a large semicircular notch (16mm deep, 24mm long) that is 25mm from the rear of the artefact. There is a transverse ridge running across the rear edge of the sickle. The back of the blade is flat. A similar artefact was found in a Bronze Age hoard at Edington Burtie and was dated to 1200-1000BC (Pearce S, 1983, 426-427, 635). Also see GLO-D4D0A6 for a simi…

Bronze age copper alloy sickle. Incomplete curved fragment from a sickle of middle to late Bronze Age date (c. 1400- c.800 BC). The blade curves from top to bottom, and tapers to a point at the end of the blade. There is a distinct central rib running along both faces of the blade. The blade is lenticular in section. Both the inner and outer edges of the blade have been bevelled, demonstrating use and re-use of the sickle. This sickle was most likely socketed rather than tanged; the section is lentoid rather than being stepped, as is seen on tanged examples. Tanged sickles are know…

A copper alloy socket from a Bronze Age Sickle. The socket is conical with a rounded end and the mouth is complete with a slightly bevelled edge. There is an irregular hole in one side of the socket. The start of a blade with curved ribs projects to one side and points downwards. The ribs are on both faces and are matched. The object is broken across the blade. It has a well developed mottled green patina. According to Fox's 1939 paper in The Prehistoric Society Journal, socketed sickles can have lateral or vertical sockets. This one is laterally socketed (which seems to be more commo…

Incomplete fragment of a curved blade from a sickle of probable late Bronze Age date (c. 1000 - 700 BC). The fragment is incomplete being broken at both ends, the long edges are abraded and the extant section has been bent in two places. Although the fragment is heavily distorted enough survives to suggest overall shape of the blade which bears a distinct downward curve. The blade measures 93.4mm length (although if straightened would measure 140mm), 23.9mm wide, is 3.2mm thick and weighs 24.31 grams. The blade is broadly sub-rectangular in plan curving distinctly from top to bottom. …

A possible Late Bronze Age sickle fragment. All of the edges are broken. There is a prominent mid-rib which curves slightly, on one side only. The other side is flat and has no sign of a moulding. One side of the midrib tapers suddenly and although a small area of the edge is intact, the edge is mostly corrosion chipped. There is a possibility that this object might be a rim fragment from a vessel. Dark green, smooth and even patina.The object weighs 17.45g and is 28.6mm long, its wall thickness is 3mm and its thickness at the rib is 7mm.

A middle Bronze Age copper alloy fragment probably from a sickle blade (circa 1500-1150 BC). The blade has a rounded lozenge-shaped cross-section; it tapers towards the point and gently curves longitudinally in an arc. The broken edge has the same patchy mid green patina as the rest of the surface suggesting the damage occurred in antiquity. Sickles have been found in Somerset hoards such as the Monkswood hoard and the Sparkford Hill hoard that are dated to the middle Bronze Age (Smith 1959:42,46). Smith (1959:46) notes that sickles are attributable to influences from the Nordic …

A cast copper-alloy sickle blade of probable middle to late Bronze Age date. This is a particularly good example of a rare artefact type: only ten complete or partial examples are recorded on the PAS database. Seven sickles were discovered in a hoard of 9th-10th century BC metalwork at Isleham, Suffolk (D. Britton; 1960), but the report for this excavation was unavailbale to the recorder and so a comparison of styles was not possible. The closest parallel that could be found was an example from the collection of Lord McAlpine (A. MacGregor ed.; 1987; pp. 100; no. 10.10); this was thoug…

A badly corroded incomplete curved bronze blade end, probably from a middle or late Bronze Age sickle. Measuring 59mm in surviving length, 16mm in width and 2mm in thickness. The blade is incomplete due to old worn breaks, the original surface is lost to corrsive products, it is now pale green in colour. The blade is thin, narrow and lozenge-shaped in cross-section. The concave cutting edge is quite damaged but includes what looks to be a deliberate notch, though possibly accidental or due to corrosion.

Fragment of Late Bronze Age sickle. It is pointed oval in section and 21.5mm wide (max 2.5mm thick) at the (old) break. Both sides have decoration in the form of three worn ribs and two grooves. The three ribs join at a point 7mm from the end of the sickle, and a single rib extends to this end point. The fragment is 30mm long with one short mostly straight edge (it curves downwards at the very end) and one long curving edge. The surface is slightly pitted and the metal a bluey colour. The fragment weighs 5.62g.

A fragment of a cast copper-alloy curved blade, possibly from a sickle. It measures 39mm in surviving length and 22.5mm in width, with a maximum thickness of 2.8mm. The fragment is extremely corroded with much of the surface and the edges now gone. It is patinated pale to medium green- also on the breaks, suggesting that these are old and not recent. Due to the edge corrosion the nature of the blade is not obvious, though slightly more apparent on the outer than the inner edge; however, the central mid-rib is clearly in the form of an arc. Both edges (where surviving) are rela…
