Record ID: LVPL-F314E0
Object type: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Flintshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An almost intact cast bronze / copper alloy slender and faceted socketed axe of Late Bronze Age date (1000 - 800 BC). The axe is almost complete (95%), with only a few chips missing from the edge of the blade and the socket. The original edge of the blade is not present so it is hard to determine how the blade extended outwards. The axe is sub rectangular in plan, with the edge of the cutting edge appears to expand / flare outwards to form an convex cutting edge. The expanded blade has a curved convex (crescent shaped) cutting edge which is relatively poorly preserved. The socke…

Record ID: LVPL-F33C38
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Flintshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast differentially corroded hook-shaped dense base-metal object, of probable Bronze Age dating. The artefact is semi-circular in plan, and oval in cross section. It has a rectangular hollow opening, which still contains some soil. The top then flattens out before narrowing and curving to a point. In form and size it resembles the tusk of a pig or wild boar. Original, but longitudinally cracking surfaces survive on the interior concave curved side however original surfaces are almost entirely missing on the exterior convex shaped side. Microscope examination of the e…

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper alloy (probably bronze) socketed spear (spear head) of Middle to Late Bronze Age dating (1500 to 800 BC). The spearhead fragment consists of the upper part of the spear, being broken at the top of the socket. The edges of the blade are lost. The spearhead fragment is broadly sub-triangular in plan and profile with a distinct bi-convex shaped cross section. The lower portion of the spearhead has been lost and the break is too high to include the cast side loops. The break at the base of the spearhead includes the top of the socket which is sub circular …

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cheshire East
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper alloy (bronze) palstave of Middle Bronze Age dating (c.1500 to c. 1150 BC). The palstave has a shield shaped pattern below the stop ridge, and raised flange facets. The blade of the palstave is sub-triangular in plan, with convex expanding sides, and a convex cutting edge. In profile the blade is sub-triangular with the widest section being before the stop ridge. The blade (measured from the cutting edge to the stop ridge) is 99.76mm long and the width of the cutting edge is 67.67mm. The thickness of the blade is 15.28mm (measured at a point below the stop …

Record ID: LVPL-C31844
Object type: CASTING WASTE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of copper alloy, probable casting waste, possibly of Bronze Age dating (2150 BC to 800 BC). However, due to the lack of context and continuation of casting styles, this fragment could be dated from the Bronze Age through to the Roman Period (c.2150 BC - 410 AD). The fragment is sub triangular in plan, and roughly D shaped in cross section. It has an irregular, rough surface. It is most likely part of a copper ingot, prior to being smelted and cast. It is a mid to dark green colour. A couple of small areas of iron staining, probably due to impurities in the copper. An e…

Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast copper alloy (bronze) flat axe of Early Bronze Age dating (c. 2200 BC to c. 1900 BC). The flat axe is broadly sub rectangular in plan with a splayed crescent shaped blade. In profile it is broadly lentoid, with slight tapering edges. In cross section the axe is D shaped with one edge displaying a distinctive curved (domed edge) whilst the opposite is relatively flat. It is likely that this is caused by the axe being cast in an open stone mould. The butt is relatively thin having a narrow rounded profile; the width at the butt is 13.96mm (thickness: 1.55mm). The side…

At the base of the socket, some white residue or possibly clay soil remnants are present. The socketed hammer is in good condition, with an even surface patina. It is a dark green colour. There are a couple of areas of more recent plough damage. The h…
