A cast copper alloy blade of Bronze Age date. A short lanceolate section of the blade survives and is thickened at the centre of its section. The blade is very worn with little surviving of its original surface and of uncertain original extent. This may be the tip of a rapier.

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper-alloy blade of probable middle Bronze Age date. The general form and dimensions of this piece suggest that it came from a long, slender implement, such as a dirk or rapier; the narrowness and thinness would seem to preclude the possibility of it being from a sword. The piece has roughly parallel sides and is of thin lozenge-shaped section, with bevelled edges. The top and bottom edges are almost horizontal, but the jagged nature of these edges suggest that this piece was broken (albeit possibly deliberately) rather than cut. The surfaces have a dark blueish-gr…

County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment from close to the tip of a Bronze Age blade, measuring 22.4mm wide (max)9.5mm wide (min),4.1mm thick, and 49.5mm long. It weighs 16.0g. The blade has a slightly convex section, with a shallow ridge along its centreline. The blade's tip is broken away transversely. It is difficult to be certain as to the type of weapon from which the fragment originated, but a dagger is likely. The fragment is in poor condition, with an uneven brown patina.

County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy fragment, possibly part of a Bronze Age object such as an axe. The fragment is highly corroded, with the similar light green patina to that usually found on Bronze Age objects. The form is irregular, with a flattened, oval section. The object tapers from 8.66mm thick at one edge to 6.09mm at the opposite edge. A squarish void in the thickest edge may be the remains of a casting socket.

County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of copper alloy middle to late Bronze Age blade. This fragment is subsquare in plan and a flattened lentoid in section. There is no median rib or ridge. It is 31.26mm long, 37.54mm wide, 5.18mm thick and weighs 28.08g. The two cutting edges and one has a significant nick to one corner. The break edges are regular and worn. This might suggest that the blade was deliberately cut in antiquity, perhaps for inclusion in a scrap or ‘founders’ hoard. Some of the original surface survives with a mid green patina, but the mostly exposed lower surface is light green. There is a sign…

Fragment of cast copper alloy blade from an unknown Bronze Age weapon. This fragment is subrectangular in plan and has a flattened oval section. There is no sign of a median rib or ridge. The fragment is abraded and pitted. The original surface survives with a mid green patina and exposed surfaces are only fractionally lighter. The two break edges are worn suggesting damage occurred in antiquity. Both breaks are fairly even, but it is not clear if the fragment has been broken along each side, or whether it has been deliberately cut for inclusion in a scrap hoard. The fragment is 30.02…

Fragment of copper alloy middle to late Bronze Age blade. This fragment is subsquare in plan and a flattened lentoid in section. There is no median rib or ridge. It is 28.3mm long, 33.8mm wide, 4.48mm thick and weighs 19.84g. The two cutting edges are worn and chipped. The break edges are regular and worn. This might suggest that the blade was deliberately cut in antiquity, perhaps for inclusion in a scrap or ‘founders’ hoard. The surface is abraded and the original surface is patchy. It is brown in patina. Exposed surfaces are light green.

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of copper alloy double edged blade, probably Bronze Age. This fragment is subrectangular in plan with a lentoid section. Both broken ends are straight, as if the blade has been deliberately broken, possibly for its inclusion in a scrap hoard. The object is slightly bent, supporting this theory. The narrowness of the fragment suggests it has come from the pointed end of a weapon, possibly a spearhead. The fragment is abraded. Where the original surface survives, it has a dark green patina, but is otherwise mid green in colour. It has a surviving length of 34.02mm, is 16.98mm wi…

Short length of copper alloy double-edged blade, with lozenge-shaped cross section. Possibly part of a rapier blade. The break at one end is very worn and may have happened in antiquity. The break at the other end is more recent.
