Object type: WINGED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Swansea
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Late Bronze Age bronze end-winged axe, belonging to the Carp's Tongue complex of Ewart Park metalworking, corresponding to Needham's (1996) Period 7 and dated to c. 950-750BC. The winged axe is incomplete, missing both wings on the unlooped side (the axe has an overall length of 1360.9mm and a weight of 282.8g). The butt protrudes beyond the return of the wings (by 14mm) and expands to the end (with a width of 22.4mm and a thickness of 6.1mm). The end of the butt has two 'horns' each side of a central rectangular break, which would have been attached to the casting jet before remov…

Cast lead-alloy whistle in the shape of a pipe bowl, probably late 19th century in date. The pipe bowl is similar to clay pipe examples and is decorated with moulded decoration consisting of joined semicircles and small raised knops. The base of the bowl ends in a pointed spike. Casting flashes are prominent on both sides. Iron corrosion is evident on the rim, suggesting an iron collar. The beginning of the stem is intact, and it is unclear if the stem was also made of a lead alloy, ceramic or other material. See NARC-6E7E81 for a similar example. Further information on this artefa…

Lead alloy or pewter hawking whistle of Post medieval date, possibly dating from the 18th century. The whistle is cast in the form of a dog’s head with a wide collar decorated with a ring and dot design. The dog is biting on an iron pin, which presumably would have formed a suspension ring.

Freestanding, discoidal lead alloy weight. One side is decorated with a set of linear cast motifs incorporating a central cross and radiating lines in each quarter. The other side is plain. The edge of the casting is irregularly crimped. The casting is perforated, at a slight angle, from the plain side through the centre of the cross motif on the decorated side. The perforation is less than 1mm in diameter and of unknown purpose (it may be a casting feature to align a two-part mould). Diameter 28-30mm; thickness 10mm.
