Early Bronze age copper alloy flat axe blade, 57mm long, 61mm wide (at blade) and 9 mm thick with a weight of 123grams. The object is rectangular in cross section and sub rectangular in form. It is in fair condition, having lost some surface and it is incomplete having snapped about half way down its orginal length? Here is it 26mm wide and 9mm thick. From here its sides flare slightly outwards and taper in thickness to form a slightly rounded blade 1mm thick. It is decorated on both faces with a series of linear depressions running towards the blade. The axe is similar to a Migdale t…

County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Blade tip of a Bronze Age axe. The item is fragmentary and only the curved blade edge of the axe remains. This makes it difficult to identify and date precisely, though it is likely, due to the metal composition and form, that the fragment is Bronze Age in date, c. 2350 - 800BC. The blade tip is lentoid in cross section, with the edges being the thinnest point (1.1mm), and the thickness gradually tapering toward the centre and away from the edge. ​Dimensions: weight: 28.44g, length: 59.1mm, width: 19.6mm, thickness at thickest point: 7.1mm

A fragment of a copper alloy mid to late Bronze Age (and into the early Iron Age) socketed axe. Only a small section of the socketed end survives survive. This is curved in profile with a raised rounded rim along the outer face of the socket end. The breaks are well worn. Both faces have the remains of a dark brown shiny patina in places, but this has worn away on the raised sections. Socketed axes were in use during the mid to late Bronze Age, from c.1300-700 BC. Length: 35.90mm, width: 24.49mm, thickness: 7.02mm, weight: 20.58g

Fragment of a copper alloy axe of middle to late Bronze age date (c. 1500 to 1150 BC). The item is rectangular in shape. The butt and the flanged sides remain, whilst the majority of the axe blade is missing. The flanged sides of the axe fragment are parallel to the stop, and the upper and lower faces are concave, forming an 'H' shaped cross section. The item has a rough surface, and a reddish-brown patina all over. It was treated with renaissance wax. Due to the fragmentary nature of the axe, it is not possible to assign a type.

The blade tip of a bronze age axe blade. The item is broken and only the end or tip of the blade remains. It is made from cast copper alloy. The axe tip is sub-rectangular in shape, with the top and bottom edges of the axe widening slightly to form a sloghtly curved blade tip. The blade tip does not flare out and then back in on itself into the top and bottom edges, suggesting that the blade was a realtively plain and flat design. As none of body of the axe reamains, it is not possible to further identify in which way the item may have been hafted or secured. Dimensions: weight: 5…

An incomplete copper alloy socketed axe of Late Bronze Age date, c. 1100 - 800 BC. The oblong socket is cast off centre with a shallow curve to the cutting edge, the blade has no flare. The sides appear to be parallel and have casting seams in situ. This is possibly a deliberately broken fragment or possibly a casting failure. The surface has a smooth mid to dark green patina.

A copper alloy fragment of a probable Bronze Age axe or palstave. The tip of the blade has an unusual 'hook' like form. A similar tip can be seen in - The Bronze Age in Ireland (Coffey 1913) has a palstave at Chapter III plate I. where a very similar 'hooked tip' to a palstave. At Fig 20, there is a similar tip to a Winged Celt. Therefore, this is suggestive of the object being from the Middle to Late Bronze Age c. 1400-800 BC. The tip has a smooth mid-green patina.

A tip fragment of a late Bronze Age axe, it has a curved blade with probable small wings. The fragment has what looks to be the bottom of the socket within the centre of the broken region. Hence, this is most likely to be c. 1000 - 800 BC similar to the Llyn Fawr phase. The surface is mottled mid-green with brown staining.

A copper alloy cast blade edge fragment of a Bronze Age axe c. 1500 - 700 BC. The cutting edge is splayed and curved with 'V' groves in the sides where the blade has been hammered into form. There are worn casting flashes to the sides. The axe has a clean break parallel with the blade and 4.5 cm above the tip of the blade. There is a darker area of casting in the centre of the break which may be indicative of the bottom of the socket having been just above that break. Perhaps it may also be due to some form of deferential cooling of the core. It may be possibility that it is a frag…
