Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a, cast copper alloy, ring, possibly a bracelet or armlet of Bronze Age date, 2000-900 BC. The fragment is part of a circumferal ring. The breaks in the ring are old, being quite worn and corroded. In cross section the ring is a pointed oval. There is no surface decoration on the piece. The surface is patinated red/green. As the object is incomplete it is difficult to be certain on its date or function, the innumerable uses for rings of all sizes makes them difficult to classify.

Object type: CHISEL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete, copper alloy, chisel, possibly Bronze Age - Medieval in date, 2000BC - AD.1100. The object is a single cast chisel with a flat bladed terminal that widens towards the middle of the piece before tapering down to a point. The point is likely the tang of the object to be inserted into a wooden handle. There is no decoration on the object and it has an even, green, patina. Small chisels and tools of this type were used for an extensive period of time, not simply in the bronze age, but also in later periods for jewellery making and fine work. As such dating the object is diff…

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Part of the mouth of a socket from an unidentified object, possibly a Bronze Age axe or hammer, possibly a Medieval staff or similar. Only part of two sides remain and the corner between them so the full dimensions of the socket are unclear. All the breaks are old and patinated. The socket appears to have been square in section with slightly convex sides. The inside is smooth with a slightly white metakl sheen, probably from tin. The outerside is more corroded with a pitted green surface. At the mouth is a slight lip which projects more in places and maybe a cleaned casting flash. bey…

Object type: METAL WORKING DEBRIS
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy metalworking debris. A large fragment of solidified melt which has set on a smooth flat surface. The upper surface of the metal displays low rounded excrescences, and appears smoothed by adventitious wear. This was reported along with other fragments whose upper surfaces exhibited localised crystalline structures and whose lower surfaces were sanded. The different surfaces could point to two discrete episodes of non-ferrous metalworking in the same vicinity. The amount of metal in this fragment suggests the waste from a major episode of casting, and this reporter feels it…

Copper alloy metalworking debris. A fragment of solifdified casting spillage which has set on a flat and probably sanded surface. A part of the material has a pale purple grey tint, the rest is green. Part of an extensive spread of similar objects which point to a discrete episode of metalworking in the vicinity; the clear evidence for sanded surfaces here may suggest a deliberately formed casting bed was in use. Suggested date: Unknown, Later Bronze Age to Post-Medieval, 1000BC-AD1800. Length: 59.3mm, Thickness: 20.7mm, Weight: 77.90gms

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An irregular copper-alloy probable cast finger-ring, likely Bronze Age/Iron Age or Early-medieval in date. Discussion: The ring is roughly D-shaped in plan with a much thinner flatter edge flatter. The band varies in cross section from circular to D-shaped. The ring is heavily patinated and pitted. Measurements:27.27mm wide, 23.97mm high, 4.18mm thick and 6.77g in weight. Discussion: Plain finger-rings are very difficult to date, the very crude nature of this example would suggested a Bronze Age to Early-Medieval date, although with no decoration and crude production makes an…

Copper alloy awl/point that is a long thin rod that has an expanded waist (5mm diameter) towards one end. The longer side (from the expansion) is 40mm long and has a circular cross-section (3mm diameter) which very gently tapers to the tip, unfortunately the terminal is truncated. The shorter side (form the expansion) is 14mm long, and has a rectangular cross-section (2mm diameter) that narrows to a fine point; this side may have been used as a tang and could have been inserted into a socket.

An incomplete and damaged copper-alloy bead of possible unknown date, possibly dating from Bronze Age to Roman date (c. 2400 BC-c. AD 410). This bead is circular in plan and has a central sub-circular perforation. The internal edges of the perforation are bevelled. The bead has a brown coloured patina and area where the original surface has been damaged. Similar beads are recorded on the PAS database with a variety of date ranges suggested, cf. LEIC-3641F5, SOM-DA2D9C, IOW-04D9D1.The patina of this object might suggest a Bronze Age date, however other comparisons date to th…

A cast copper-alloy ring probably of later prehistoric to early medieval date. The ring has worn bevelled edges and a broadly lozengiform cross section. There is some wear and corrosion of the metal, which could suggest a later prehistoric date (Bronze Age to Late Iron Age / Roman, c. 1200 BC to AD 409), but it could also date to the early medieval period (AD 409-1066) as these objects are very hard to date without contextual information.
