A cast copper-alloy socketed side-looped spearhead, dating from the Middle Bronze Age, about 1500 BC - 1150 BC. The spearhead's blade is a sub-oval / leaf-shaped with central rib, hollow socket and cast semi-circular side loops along the shaft. The socket appears to be at its full length although there is damaged around the socket opening. The overall shape of the blade can be described as being leaf-shaped. It has straight sides at the point end, with a rounded base near the socket. The centre of the blade is divided by a tapering (tip to base) lozenge shaped midrib. This midrib ex…

A copper alloy socketed and fluted chisel of Late Bronze date (1000BC- 801BC). The chisel is roughly wedge shaped, tapering to a hammered point from a wide circular rim at the socket end. The socket itself is roughly square shapedand appears to have iron oxide within in the socket. The entirety of the object is a rough dark brown with patches of light brown corrosion and the occasional hint of light coppery metal. Oxidisaiton would suggest iron but some parts of the object have the green tinge of copper corrosion under the brown oxidisaiton. With an overall length of 140.72mm and w…

Two fragments of ceramic vessel of probable Bronze Age to Iron Age date (c.1000-1 BC). Both fragments are of a coarse dark brown handmade fabric which has been irregularly fired. The fabric has moderate density of angular well-sorted flint, sand and organic inclusions. Both fragments are body sherds, probably of a large-circumference storage container. The thicknesses suggest they could come from different vessels.
