Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Middle Bronze Age cast copper alloy palstave (axehead) with one side loop dating to BC 1300 to 1150. The palstave has an old, irregular break at the butt. The septum is gradually thickens from 3.0 mm at the butt to 7.4 mm before the stop. The septum is 54.2 mm in length and 24.4 mm in width. The flanges gradually widen from the butt to the stop to a maximum of 31.4 mm on one side and 29.6 mm on the other side, creating a triangular shape in profile. The stop is angled forwards slightly at its centre and is thicker than the flanges at the centre at 31.3 mm. An integral loop survives on…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small copper alloy, perhaps miniature or 'model', Middle Bronze Age palstave axehead of Schmidt and Burgess 'unclassified low-flanged palstave' type with broad blade (group III) and without side loop, belonging to the Taunton phase of metalworking and corresponding to Needham's period 5, 1500-1150 BC. The flanges are a little worn (old damage) but the object is otherwise complete. From the central stop ridge (13.5mm wide, 13.3mm thick) the blade has gently expanding straight sides, curving into a broad but flattish cutting edge 19.8mm wide (with possible old damage to one corner). Di…

A crude elongate plano-convex knife. Made on a large secondary flake of pale grey flint with off-white mottles. It retains a small area of abraded nodule cortex and there is iron staining along the flake ridges. There is a small bulb of percussion at the proximal end and numerous irregularly spaced waves of percussion on the ventral face. There are several large parallel flaking scars on the dorsal face. There is scalar retouch along both of the long edges and at the distal end. Along one side the retouch is semi abrupt and along the opposite edge the retouch is more invasive and proba…

A flint scraper and retouched incomplete flint flake of probable later Prehistoric date. 1. A large, sub-rectangular tertiary flake of beige-brown flint mottled with areas of sandy, cortex-like inclusions. The dorsal face exhibits a number of irregularly sized removals, all probably from the same platform as the overall removal, some abrasion along the dorsal end of the striking platform would suggest the use of platform preparation.The bulb of percussion is relatively diffuse, allthough this is likely down to the nature of the raw material, and is unscarred. The left and distal edges…

Flint with cortex, scraper. A small thick chunk with broad flakes removed from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike and with a flat ventral surface. The thickest end of the chunk has received short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect, producing a broad working face which was subsequently lightly battered. A dense creamy patina overall suggests the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 38.6mm, Width: 35.7mm, Thickness: 21.2mm, Weight: 30.65gms

Fire-cracked flint. A small fragment of patinated flint with the characteristically jagged and hackled surface and deep cracking associated ith intense heat - though it is noted that such effects were wont to occur in recent times, when the burning of stubble was a common agricultural practice. However, this object is accompanied by prehistoric flints, whose date range is advanced for it here, with a later extension offered in precautionary vein. Suggested date: Unknown, Late Mesolithic to Early Bronze Age, 7000-1600 BC. Length: 42mm, Width: 24.9mm, Thickness: 17.2mm, Weight: 19.09gms

Sevon incomplete flakes prehistoric flint debitage. The flakes represent a number of flint sources, and are a mix of tertiary and secondary flakes, although where it survives the area still covered by cortex is invariably small. The proximal end survives on three flakes, these all have relatively diffuse bulbs of percussion, only one exhibiting a bulbar scar and with one exhibtiign a slight 'lip' at the platform, suggesting the use of a soft hammer. One flake exhibits platform preparation, and clear evidence of multiple striking platforms. The flakes exhibit a mixture of sub-parallel a…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy fragment of a Bronze Age spearhead, dating to c. 1500-800 BC. It is sub-rectangular in plan and slightly tapering towards one end. It consists of a portion of the blade wing and part of the midrib. The surviving blade has a longitudinal bevel on both faces and it breaks on its inner edge. Along the latter break there are two semi-circular dents, which suggest some sort of old percussion. Only one face of the fragmentary midrib survives showing the inside surface of the socket. Both short ends of the spearhead are affected by old breaks. The surfaces are abraded and cover…

A fragment of Middle Bronze Age copper alloy side-looped spearhead of Greenwell & Brewis' Class IV, consisting of an incomplete socket-end only. The metal is badly pitted and little original patina remains. The socket-end is worn and damaged and measures 10.2mm wide and 10.8mm tall (internal 7.5x8.1mm). To one face, just above the socket-end where the patina is retained, are two sections of parallel line. Possible traces of linear decoration on corresponding worn areas at this point suggest these might have been a pair of decorative concentric grooves. Above, the loops extend to e…

A complete copper alloy scabbard chape dating to the late Bronze Age, 1150 - 800 BC. The chape is sub triangular or ogival in shape, and lozenge shaped in cross section. At the open end the chape curves upwards into two convex arms, creating a crescent shape. The outside edges curve down gradually to half way down the chape, before narrowing at a more steep angle. The chape terminates with a rounded knop, at the end of which is a circular hole and rivet to attach the knop. Running down the centre of the chape on both sides is a raised ridge, this slopes gradually down to the edge of th…

An incomplete copper alloy socketed, side-looped spearhead, dating from the early Middle Bronze Age (c.1550-1250 BC). The spear can probably be assigned to Davis's Group 7 'Special Side Looped'.

Approximately one third of the blade has been broken off. The socketed end of the spear measures 15.76mm in diameter. The single side loop towards the base of the socketed end has since broken away. There is a hole on one face of …

Copper alloy axe head fragment. A tiny chip from the end of the cutting edge of a cast axe head, possibly parted from its matrix at the site of a casting flaw. The cutting edge was crescentic with abrupt ends, though too little remains to firmly ascribe this scrap to a particular type. Suggested date: Middle to Late Bronze Age, 1600-800 BC.
