Late Bronze Age hoard of ten objects. 1. Carp's Tongue sword blade fragment Surviving length 41.0mm; surviving width 27.7mm; maximum thickness 9.5mm; surviving weight 35.2g. Small blade fragment with a rounded midrib, approximately 11.8mm wide, with edge defined by single grooves to either side and on both faces. The outer sections of the blade are highly corroded, with no original blade edge surviving. The blade fragment is bent towards one end, as viewed side on, indicating it was forcibly broken in antiquity. The fragment has a green patination, with areas of ligher green …

Object type: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Late Bronze Age bronze socketed axe probably of Type Portree or a variant, possibly Variant Kalemouth, as defined by Schmidt & Burgess (1981, p. 184-90) possibly dating to the transition of the Wilburton-Wallington and Ewart Park metalworking phases corresponding to Needham's (1996) Periods 6 to 7, c. 1150 -750BC. The axe is of 'Baggy' form and is incomplete, missing the mouth and loop (with a surviving length of 55.5mm and a weight of 74.8g with the wood in the socket and 73.3g without). The top of the axe has broken or is eroded, probably just below the mouth. The mouth is oval…

Object type: HAMMER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Late Bronze Age socketed tool, probably a hammer, probably of Late Bronze Age date c. 1000-700BC. The tool is incomplete missing the mouth (with a length of 65.5mm and a weight of 101.1g) and has broken in antiquity. At the break, the socket mouth is of oval form (with an internal dimensions of 12.4mm x 11.1mm and with a surviving depth of 28.9mm). The tool is thicker on the more complete side (with a thickness of 3.6mm compared to 1.7mm). Each side had at least two linear stepped mouldings along its length (with a depth of up to 2.5mm). The sides are convergent, with the stepped moul…

Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Early Bronze Age bronze flat axe, possibly a reworked axe or an axe blank probably dating to c. 2,200 - 1,900BC The axe is comparatively short with a wide thick butt (with a length of 82.2mm and a weight of 202.8g). The butt is straight and flat (with a width of 39mm and a thickness of 8.5mm) possibly suggesting the axe may have been reworked from a larger axe. The sides are straight and divergent for a short distance from the butt (approximately 20mm) before becoming concave and diverging to a moderately expanded blade edge (with a surviving width of 61.2mm). The sides are rounded…

Object type: PENANNULAR RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A plain penannular gold 'lock-ring' with biconical section and a now hollow interior, which has been crumpled and distorted in the ground. The small ring, originally around 30mm in diameter, comprises two circular sheet face-plates with a thin gold wire fused to the plate join, to form an outer rim-binding. A third tube-shaped sheet (once around 9.5mm in height) defines the wall of the inner circular-shaped opening and is folded over the margins of the face-plates. The terminals defining the slot are triangular shaped in cross-section and are open. Semi-quantitative surface analysi…

Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Early Bronze Age (or Metal-Using Neolithic) copper flat axe, falling within Needham et al.'s (forthcoming) Class 2D, Type Halberton, or probably of Type Growtown / Milton Moss (following Schmidt and Burgess 1981). The axe is near-complete with only a little damage to the edges and has a length of 98.55mm and weighs 325.1g. The butt has suffered a little damage making the type identification difficult and slightly speculative, but appears to have been straight with a surviving width of 32.9mm and a thickness of 4.5mm. The sides of the axe are comparatively straight and are very slig…

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Medial fragment from a Bronze Age copper alloy palstave. The fragment has broken in antiquity and has a surviving length of 74.6mm and weighs 139.8g. The fragment encompasses the upper end of the blade, the stop and the majority of the septum. The septum has a surviving length of 45mm and is broken at an angle. It is possible that the position at the end of the septum is the butt of the palstave, although this can not be demonstrated. The septum is comparatively flat and has a thickness of 6-7mm. Both of the sides are straight for the length of the fragment. The flanges are eroded,…

Record ID: NMGW-7E53B5
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Blade-end fragment from a Bronze Age axehead of uncertain type and date. The axe is represented by the end of the blade only and no evidence survives on the broken section for the bottom of a socket. The blade edge and the blade tips have also been lost. The sides of the axe are diverging, possibly resulting in a recurved blade edge. The faces are slightly convex, resulting in an oval section. The axe would have been comparatively slender, probably suggesting the fragment was from a palstave or socketed axe.

Object type: HALBERD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
This is a symmetrical slender halberd blade of cast copper or bronze. Down the centre of the blade is a straight midrib. This is wide and angular in cross-section, at the top end tapering with a straight line into the haft-plate. The blade edges have been entirely removed, thus also removing any traces of bevelling originally along the edge. Whilst much of this damage is due to erosion of fragile edges, it is possible that some edges were notched through use wear or mutilation prior to burial. The erosion seems particularly deep and severe, with concave eroded depressions side by side…

Record ID: NMGW-22B071
Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Bronze palstave axe dating to the early Middle Bronze Age, and probably of Taunton or Cemmaes metalworking tradition, Needham et al. (1996) Period 5; c. 1500-1150 BC. The palstave is of an early type and is unlooped, and is also without either a shield pattern or a mid-rib on the blade. The palstave would appear to belong to Group III palstaves of Low-Flanged (Broad-Blade) form, the lack of cast blade decoration on this example makes it difficult to categorise to a specific type, but would appear to be dated to c. 1350-1200BC. The palstave is relatively slight, compared to the more…

Object type: AXE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
This is a blade end fragment of an indeterminate Middle or Late Bronze Age axe. The broken section has eroded, making it difficult to determine if the axe has fractured at the bottom of the socket of a socketed axe of Late Bronze Age type, or through a solid palstave of the Middle to Late Bronze age. The axe fragment has the remnants of a single rib running down one of the faces. The other face is irregular with large pitting, which may have been a feature of the axe, rather than a corrosion effect. The blade edge has been lost through corrosion but was originally expanded. The axe wou…

Record ID: NMGW-3FF0B8
Object type: AXE HAMMER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Large complete but unfinished Early Bronze Age (c. 2500 ? 1450 BC) axe hammer. The implement has been made on a medium-grained carboniferous sandstone (a band of similar material can be found to the north of the findspot, stretching from St. Brides Bay to Saundersfoot). The axe hammer is large and heavy and has been roughly shaped giving the implement a somewhat irregular appearance as is usual with this implement type. The sides are gently convex in profile, establishing the artefact as a Roe?s (1979) Class I. The upper and lower faces may also be judged convex making the axe hammer d…
