Record ID: NMGW-E9F623
Object type: SWORD
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
The object comprises the hilt and upper blade of an iron sword (overall length 235mm). The surviving blade length below the lower guard is 109mm; the blade is straight and two-edged, with a width of 52mm at top, tapering to 47mm at the break. To judge from the other blades (80-95cm long: Evison 1967, 189, Appendix), about 75% of its original length is missing. The blade profile cannot, therefore, help determine the form and date, which is reliant on the guard and pommel. The pommel is constructed in two sections, the upper pommel cap being of broad flat, trilobate form. It is fa…

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Iron arrowhead, probably of Medieval date. The arrowhead is socketed, and narrows as it approaches the blade. The blade would have had upward sloping shoulders, as evidenced by the more intact side. This arrowhead corresponds to the ‘multi-purpose forms’ used for both hunting and warfare identified by Jessop (1996).

Object type: AXE
Broad period: ROMAN
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of axe blade with a straight front face while the rear face, although straight at first, sweeps back to from a wide cutting edge. The axe blade has a triangular longitudinal section. Part of the cutting edge, most of the socket and the poll are missing and the remaining portion of the axe is heavily corroded. It is not possible to identify with the naked eye the weld line where one side of the socket is joined to the blade. An example of Manning's Type 2 (1985, 15-16, fig.3); however, it is not certain that this axe is Roman in date. The form of many iron tool types are parti…
