  • Thumbnail image of IOW-5CE393

Record ID: IOW-5CE393
Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a Middle Bronze Age copper-alloy palstave (c. 1500-c. 1150 BC). This surviving fragment is the butt end and is trapezoidal in plan, rectangular in cross-section and has an inverted 'V'-shape in side view. The narrower terminal end, which appears to be almost complete, has abraded breaks. The break at the opposite end is crisp and may be recent. This end has a number of casting 'blow' holes. Vestigial remains of the wings are present on each face. Each side has a vertical casting seam which has been hammered down. The fragment is generally green with lighter green specks…

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Monmouthshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Probable Bronze Age gold strip fragment. This is a semi-worked thickened strip fragment of gold of broadly rectangular shape. The strip has been worked and there are hammer facets visible on the flat surfaces and side margins. One edge has been hammered up and has a projecting margin on one face edge. The strip was broken at one end with a double-grip tool without sharp edges. As a result, there is widening, lateral distortion with thinning at one end, near the break. On one face, the break has created a near flat angled facet, while on the reverse there is a distinct concave curvatur…

A fragment of a cast copper alloy Late Bronze Age socketed axe probably a Southeastern type dating to the period c.1000 - 800 BC. It is trapezoidal in shape and has a narrowed, triangular profile. The axe fragment consists of the lower portion of the axe that contain the slightly expanded cutting edge and the sides up to an old break just above the socket aperture to where the core of the mould would have ended. The remains of the socket are sub-rectangular in shape. There is no decoration visible on the surface. The width measures 49.6 mm across the cutting edge and 35.5 mm across t…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
10 peices of worked flint debitage, with the majority probably dating to the Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age, although some may potentially be earlier (see notes). The assemblage contains at least six different flints, including one flake of chert and two which appear to have originated in beach pebbles. The other sources are of a translucent beige/brown flint (3), more highly patinated pale white/grey flint (1) and mottled pale grey flint (2). The assemblage contains one primary flake (from a beach pebble), four secondary flakes and five tertiary. With the exception of the patinate…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint core of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze age date, c. 4000-1000 BC. The tertiary core of mottled grey/dark grey flint is broadly trapezoidal in plan and broadly triagular in profile. It exhibits flake and blade-like flake removal scars, struck from a variety of directions, suggesting the core was being rotated around and multiple striking platforms used. The unusually squat form f the core suggests that it is itself potentially a reguvination flake, removed from a larger core, however, although no flakes appear to have ever been removed from it, the edges of the ventral …

An incomplete Late Neolithic to early Bronze Age flint scraper, probably dating to c. 3000-1000 BC. A tertiary flake of brown/beige flint mottled with paler areas and with one ferrous inclusion visible in a break (see below). The flake has natural breaks on two sides, with the proximal end and left edge both lost. The curvature of the ventral face would suggest that near to the flakes original length survivives. All along the curve of the surviving worked edge exhibits retouch (short, sub-parallel/stepped in places, semi-abrupt) on the dorsal face, all struck from the ventral, which is…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint Arrowhead of late Neolithic to Bronze Age date (2500-1200 BC). The object is a barbed and tanged form and is sub-triangular in plan and shallowly pointed oval in section. One of the tangs is missing. Both dorsal and ventral surfaces have covering stepped flaking. The left and right hand edges have fine, low angled retouch. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint a light orange/brown in colour. Length: 42mm, Width: 26mm.
