Bronze Age bronze butt fragment from an axe of uncertain type but of Developed Axe or Palstave form The axe is fragmentary, broken at both ends but is likely to have been close to the butt (with a surviving length of 21.4mm and a weight of 17.1g). The butt end has some damage (with a width of 21mm and a thickness of 4.4mm). The sides are slightly divergent to the break (with a maximum width of 24.6mm and a thickness of 6.7mm - 7.3mm). There is the suggestion of a casting seam on one side, although little of the original surface survives. The flanges are beginning to develop above t…

Early to Middle Bronze Age bronze axe, probably either a Developed Flat axe or of Later Short-flanged type and of second millennia BC date. The axe is incomplete missing the butt (with a surviving length of 59.2mm and a weight of 64.7g). The axe is of sub rectangular section and is comparatively slender and stout (with a width at the break of 18.0mm and a thickness of 8.8mm). The axe fragment reaches its thickest point (at 9.4mm), 36mm from the blade edge. The sides of the axe are straight and near parallel for the length of the blade. The casting seams are not discernible on the s…

Butt fragment from a flat axe, flanged axe or palstave of indeterminate type and of Early Bronze Age to Middle Bronze Age date, probably dated to c. 2,200 - 1,150BC. The axe is represented by the butt only, with a surviving length of 29.52mm and a weight of 31.4g. The butt is thin and tapers to an edge with a width of 30.04mm. The sides of the axe diverge slightly to the break where the axe has a width of 33.77mm. The sides are rounded across their thickness and there is no discernible evidence for flanges on the fragment. The axe has a maximum thickness at the break of 7.05mm. The fa…

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…
