Circumstances of Discovery In August 2011, a group of three prehistoric copper alloy objects were found in West Yorkshire. All three objects were socketed axeheads of Late Bronze Age date, dispersed by ploughing. Two of the axes (Nos. 2 & 3) were found within 0.3m of each other. A further axe (No. 1) was found further away (c.5-15m distant). Note on subsequent fieldwork (December 2012): A small scale excavation of the findspot and further systematic metal detecting survey was conducted in December 2012. This did not reveal any further finds of comparable date. The excavation did no…
