A heavily distorted fragment of gold sheet, probably from a strip or 'ribbon' of Bronze Age date, c. 2350 - 800 BC Description: The object has been folded several times and is creased and torn in several locations, all presumably in antiquity. It is difficult to establish the original form of the object owing to its current condition, but it was probably a band with straight sides, the shape of the terminal cannot be distinguished. The incised linear decoration of the strip can be paralleled on a number of gold strips and 'ribbons' of known and very probable Bronze Age date, for ex…

A hoard of 929 fragments of copper-alloy plate and their container of likely Late Bronze Age date, c. 1150 - 800BC, possibly of the Wilburton phase (c.1150-1000BC). Description: The hoard consists of 929 fragments of copper-alloy 'plate'. These pieces range in size from 9mm x 6mm to 58mm x 41mm and are highly irregular. No element can clearly be identifed as coming from either a bun ingot, typical of the period or clearly definet object types. It is noted however that all the fragments are small enough to easily be added to a crucible for remelting. While most of the edges of the f…

Treasure case 2016 T203: Acquired by Somerset Museum Service Description: A fragment of Middle Bronze Age flange- or bar-twisted gold torc. The torc would have been manufactured from a cast bar into which four longitudinal cuts were made. These were then worked to create an X-shaped cross-section and finally the bar was twisted to create a spiral effect. Only a small portion of the original object survives. The fragment terminates in clean breaks at either end and is likely to have been cut. It has been bent into a U-shape with one terminal projecting upwards and the other bent…

Description: The 'East Cambridgeshire' torc is a four-flange twisted bar torc of Middle Bronze Age date, known to belong to the Penard phase of c.1300-1150 BC (Taylor 1980, 62; Needham 2001; Roberts 2007). It is made of three separate components: two very similar, undecorated, bent-back, 'trumpet'-shaped, terminals affixed at either end of an exceptionally long (126.5cms, excluding the terminals) spiral twisted bar with very regular cruciform (i.e. '+' shaped) cross-section. The advantages of casting such an elaborate torc in three pieces is discussed by Taylor (1980, 61-2). A neat c…

A gold penannular ring made from three strands of wire, and probably dating from the Middle to Late Bronze Age. The strands of wire are stacked on top of each other to produce a ribbed effect. The wires are all of 1.7mm diameter and are almost circular in cross-section. The ends are cut on an angle and the longer side of each is slightly burred.One strand has separated slightly from the others at one end revealing a rough surface on the wire below where they were once joined and there are a number of stress cracks elsewhere on the ring.

Slender leaf-shaped gold strip, the ends folded over to form a distorted ring. Both ends are pierced; the two holes were executed from opposite sides of the strip. While one end is intact and tongue-shaped, the other is squared off and may retain the very slight trace of an original piercing or other feature. It is possible that this end was broken, re-pierced and roughly fettled. The hole at this end is blocked with soil. Length 19.8mm; maximum width of strip 13.9mm; thickness 0.9mm; weight 2.17 grams. Non-destructive X-ray fluorescence analysis of the surface of the pierced me…

A hoard of two Early Bronze Age flat axes, dating from about 2050 BC - 1700 BC, and found in the same hole. One axe is complete and the other is in two pieces and is decorated. Descriptive catalogue: 1. A copper alloy flat axe which is in two parts; it seems likely that this object has broken while in the ground and the break is not an example of pre-depositional action. The surfaces of the break are covered with comparable patina to the other surfaces of the object and both pieces fit neatly together. The upper portion of the blade has a damaged butt, which is now uneven wit…
