A complete copper-alloy Bronze Age Awl dating to circa 900 - 600 BC. At one end the point tapers to a rounded point and has a circular section. The tang end is flattened and is sub-rectangular in section. The shaft is sub-rectangular in section. The surface of the awl is pitted and worn, with a light to dark green patina. It has been dated to the Bronze Age due to its fabric, however as a functional object the form of the awl barely changes from the Bronze Age to Medieval periods.

A fragment from a cast copper alloy ribbed lug handle from a late Bronze Age bucket. Dot Bruns comments: "This is a fragment from either an Atlantic bucket, Danubian style series, Type Nannau-Dowris or a Hiberno-British bucket like the ones from Dowalton and Duddingston Loch, both in the National Museum in Edinburgh. These are nos 166 and 167 in Gerloff's catalogue respectively and the date is c. late Wilburton-Ewart Park metalwork tradition, that is c. 1100-800BC. Gerloff does date the buckets into the Llyn Fawr period, but I am not sure what her evidence is - I certainly h…
