Polished stone axehead recorded at the Hidden Treasure Finds Day at the National Museum & Gallery, Wales. The axe is complete and is a comparatively large example. Evidence of shaping via pecking is evident over areas of the axe, particularly around the sides of the face. The remainder of the faces are polished. The axehead is of oval section, with gently convex sides. The butt is short and slightly angled (c. 5-10 degrees) from the vertical axis of the axehead. The blade is curved and has retained its sharp edge. One of the faces is slightly dished, probably because of the shape of th…

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy leg from a medieval or post-medieval cooking vessel, perhaps a cauldron or skillet. This is a short rectangular-sectioned leg with a bevelled base resulting in the bottom of the leg forming a narrow edge. The leg has broken at the junction with the body of the vessel, and rises to become expanded, with a concave upper surface. The patina and corrosion of the fragment suggests burning, as would be expected with a cooking vessel.

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…

Small copper alloy figurine of classical style in a battered state. Right arm appears to be raised with the left lowered or forward pointing, but both are broken. Head area is badly damaged, with no trace of any features surviving and even its original shape is unclear. It appears to be a female figure in a long skirt, either bare chested or with a tight fitting top. The long pointed nature of the head could indicate a helmeted figure which could suggest that the figurine was of Minerva, an identification supported by the apparently raised right arm which would fit with holding a spe…

Two rim fragments - one fragment has a rim form that is slightly expanded and rounded internally, the fragment is heavily sooted on the exterior, as is consistent with use as a cooking vessel. The other fragment has a more angular internal rim with less sooting evident on the exterior. Short and stumpy straight ridged leg, with central rib and two less pronounced side ribs. The top of the leg has an area of the vessel body attached. The leg has evidence of sooting, with an addition thick carbon deposit on the interior of the body.

Cast copper alloy cauldron or skillet leg of Medieval date, probably dating from 13th - 16th century. The front of the leg has a prominent central rib and two side ribs near the top of the leg, where the leg joins the vessel. The rear of the leg has two chamfered edges. The interior of the vessel is present at the apex of the leg, which shows ancient breaks around its edge. One half of the front of the leg has been recently cleaned by the finder, the remainder of the leg exhibits heavy carbon deposits as a result of repeated burning, as would be expected on the surface of a cooking vessel.

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Butt fragment of a Neolithic stone axehead. The surface of the axe was ground or pecked, rather than polished. The axehead is made from an altered coarse dolorite, which is highly chloritic. The rock is likely to have originated from West Wales and is similar to sources which outcrop locally. The axehead has a pointed butt and rounded sides, which gently diverge. A little less than half of the original length survives. One of the faces shows evidence of damage through flaking, it is not clear whether this damage occurred in antiquity or more recently.

Bezel from a gilt or silvered copper alloy finger ring of Early Post-Medieval date. The raised cast design depicts a cuffed hand emerging from each side of the hoop and gripping a central heart. Two flowers emerge from the top of the heart and are flattened by a crown. The remnant of the hoop has the beginnings of an incised design, but not enough survives to determine if it represented decoration or an inscription. Traces of gilding or silvering survive on areas over the surface of the ring.

Relatively slight, complete but damaged forged iron woodman's axehead. The axehead has a crescentic cutting edge, possibly worn at the top of the blade edge. The axe blade diverges to the cutting edge. The shaft-hole would have been tear shaped, but is now torn and distorted on one side. The rear of the axehead has a flat rectangular platform, which would have been used as a hammer.

Perforated whetstone of rectangular cross-section, made of a fine-grained siltstone. The stone tapers gently to the flat end. The top of the whetstone has been damaged and is irregular. The perforation is regular and has been drilled; it has been positioned slightly off-centre on one face. All four faces illustrate evidence of whetting, but show no obvious sign of being dished through prolonged use.

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…
