Object type: BLADE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Blade fragment from a Bronze Age edged implement, probably of Middle Bronze Age date, c. 1500-1000BC. The implement is represented by the top of the blade and the beginning of the handle, but has broken at both ends and has a surviving length of 30.5mm. No rivet holes are evident at the top and much of the peripheries have been lost. The fragment has a maximum width at the end of the blade of 17.5mm. It is possible that the implement has broken across the rivet holes. The handle end thins towards the break. The blade is defined by blade edges either side of a poorly defined and rounde…

Copper alloy blade fragment of uncertain date The blade is fragmentary, broken at one end (with a surviving length of 51.9mm and a weight of 6.0g). The blade is of oval section (with a width of 9.8mm and a thickness of 2.7mm at the break) and subtle midrib flanked by gently concave blade edges. Both sides are edged and one side is subtly concave, while the opposite side is very gently convex, although it is unclear whether the form is through design or differential wear. The end of the blade is flat, rather than pointed (with a width of 7.7mm), defined by sub-triangular facets on b…

Copper alloy blade tip, possibly a tip from a spearhead of Bronze Age date The object is represented by the tip only (with a surviving length of 16.9mm and a weight of 2.1g). The break is old and the tip is of lozenge section at the break (with a maximum width of 11.5mm and a maximum thickness of 4.5mm). The blade edges have been lost but the blade appears to be straight and convergent to the tip. Both faces have a prominent rounded midrib continuing to the tip. The surface is corroded with remnants of a dark-green patina and the suggestion of sharpening striations running along …
