Record ID: NMGW-6DC691
Object type: HOARD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Two Early Bronze Age bronze flat axes, probably of Type Migdale (Schmidt & Burgess, 1981, p 35-44)[1], of Metalworking Assemblage III, corresponding to Needham's (1996)[2] Period 2 -3 and probably dating to c. 2,200 - 1,900BC. One axe is near-complete, missing the blade edge but is fragmentary with fairly extensive corrosion and peripheral loss (with a surviving length as joined of 129.2mm and a combined weight of 299.0g). The parts of the axe have a corroded join and are likely to have been joined at the break. The butt is now rounded but is corroded and thin (with a width of 22mm…

Object type: BEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wrexham
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A biconical bead made of sheet gold with a central perforation for suspension. The bead is damaged and misshapen, with a snag and a tear evident (maximum diameter 13.5mm, maximum height/width 8.0mm, thickness of sheet <0.1mm, weight 0.84g). The gold wire is sub-rectangular in cross-section, with curving meanders, suggesting it was once coiled. One terminal has a globular shaped head; the other has a flattened and folded back hook terminal (maximum current length 40.7mm, diameter of wire 0.7-1.0mm, weight 1.13g).

Object type: PENANNULAR RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Isle of Anglesey
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A small penannular ring of sheet gold construction, with simple terminals separated by a narrow gap. The sheet strip has been carefully folded over, to give an oval shaped cross-section, the internal edges around the interior diameter being separated by a gap of 1-1.5mm. The ring has been dinted, with a compression crimp in one place causing a small tear. This ring finds parallel with both penannular gold rings and 'hair-rings' of the Middle and Late Bronze Age (1400-800BC), which are now generally thought to be either hair or ear adornments. Rings of twisted bar or circula…

County: Swansea
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Early Bronze Age, Bronze cast-flanged axe whose sides are straight and near parallel, curving outwards markedly near the blade, giving a splayed blade. The artefact has a flat shaped butt end, which tapers in section. Unusually, the butt end of the axe is pierced by a circular hole (6mm in diameter). This was made with care in antiquity, possibly by drilling into the metal with a circular implement from each side of the artefact, the hole breaking through the middle (as suggested by its slightly hourglass shaped profile). The hole is slightly offset from the centre of the butt, and…

Probable Bronze Age fragment, possibly from an axe The bronze object is fragmented and with all edges rounded, possibly through water-rolling (with a length of 15.9mm, a width of 34.8mm, a thickness of 7.8mm and a weight 16.8g). The condition of the object makes any identification speculative. The fragment is of sub-triangular section, resembling the blade of an axe. The sides are not present and the faces are flat. The blade edge has been lost and there no surviving evidence for a socket base. The fragment has a dark green surface patina. The general shape of the bronze may suggest a…
