A copper alloy Middle Bronze Age palstave dating to the Acton- Penard phases (c. 1500 - 1100 BC). The palstave has a narrow butt and from the butt expands in both width and thickness into a high flange on either side flanking a central U-shaped septum. The septum exhibits a hollow on at least one face faces just above the stop ridge. This is caused by air trapped in the mould during the casting process. On one side of the palstave, adjacent to the stop ridge, is a broad U-shaped loop with tapering ends. There is a tapering triangular indent with concave sides running from the stop ri…

Object type: INGOT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of an amorphous lump of copper alloy. The piece has an irregular form with perhaps one curved side which may be the original edge. One face is very irregular with deep pits. The other, convex face is more even and may be part of the original surface with ca slight ridge follwoing the line of the possible original edge where the convex side meets the flatter 'top'. The piece is 115mm long, 74mm wide, 39.3mm thick and weighs 710 grams. The size, irregular base and this ridge make it unlike Bronze Age 'bun' shaped or plano-convex ingots, the date is therefore uncertain.
