Record ID: NMGW-623A54
Object type: DAGGER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Early Bronze Age bronze Wessex dagger of Camerton-Snowshill Series (following Gerloff 1975) or Series 5D (following Needham 2015), and of Needham's (1996) Period 4-5, probably dating from c. 1600 to 1400BC The dagger is incomplete, missing the hilt and is slightly distorted (with a surviving length of 112.1mm and a weight of 31.5g). The damaged butt is now of indeterminate form (with a maximum surviving width of 30.7mm and a thickness of 0.8mm) but there is the remains of a rivet hole or notch at the apex of the centre (of approximately 5.3mm diameter). The dagger thickens at its cen…

Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Rhondda Cynon Taf
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Early Bronze Age bronze Developed flat axe, of Class 4 (following Needham 1983) or probably of Type Scrabo Hill (Schmidt & Burgess, 1981, p 63-5) and of Metalwork Assemblage IV to V, corresponding to Needham's (1996) Period 3; dated to 2,050BC - 1,700BC. The axe is near-complete but is heavily corroded with some peripheral loss (with a surviving length of 132.4mm and a weight of 295.4g). The butt is rounded (with a width of 31.1mm) and it is now uncertain how much rounding has resulted from corrosion. The sides of the axe are comparatively straight and gradually divergent to the b…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A virtually complete knapped flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Middle Bronze Age date, c. 3000-1500 BC. It is broadly oval in plan and plano-convex in section, manufactured on a tertiary flake of dark blackish flint which now demonstrates a speckled bluish patina in places interspersed with post-depositional iron staining. The platform is plain and relatively small, with a medium sized step fracture directly below it on the dorsal surface. The lateral and distal edges of the scraper demonstrate secondary modification in the form of directly applied scalar retouch which create…

An incomplete flint blade of probable Prehistoric date. A tertiary blade or blade-like flake of a translucent biege-grey flint with white-grey patination at the proximal end. Sub-parallel removal scars are present on the dorsal face, all seemingly struck from the same direction and the overall flake removal. The blade terminates in a natural break. There are no indications of retouch. Dimensions: length 17.4mm; width 9.5mm; thickness 1.6mm; weight 0.45g. Although worked, a single flake cannot be dated with any degree of certainty and a very general Mesolithic to Bronze Age date rang…

Fossils. A pair of fossil sponges, one spherical and one oval, both with longitudinal apertures of diameter 4mm, are of natural origin. However, these are known to have been collected and curated in Prehistory, particularly in Bronze Age graves. The date range of activity in the vicinity extends the period at which these might have been collected, curated or utilised. Suggested date: Unknown, Late Mesolithic to Bronze Age, 7000-800BC.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Lincolnshire

Red-brown flint lithic implement. A thick flake with a sub-triangular point at one end. The dorsal side bears the rippled scar from the removal of a large flake by hard hammer strike; the ventral surface is flat. Short angled retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the longest curving edge. This is limited by one of the slightly concave sides of a worn point, suggesting use of that part of the object as a borer. The opposite edge to the point bears possibly angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect, though some or all of these shallow scars may be the result of for…

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete copper alloy spiral-twisted torc dating to the Taunton and Penard 'Ornament Horizon' metalwork phases of the Middle Bronze Age, circa 1400-1150 BC. The present 73mm diameter annular shape is formed from circular-section bronze rod which has been twisted into a spiral. The ends slightly overlap and both have been broken in antiquity. On one of the broken ends the twist and cross-section begins to taper-off suggesting that the break is close to a missing hooked-end terminal. The other end is an abrupt break across full twist and cross-section. The evidence strongly suggests th…

A single piece of secondary flint debitage of unknown date, probably late Neolithic to Bronze Age. A striking platform and point of percussion are visibly present on this flake. The pronounced bulb of percussion and well defined conchoidal ripple marks indicate hard hammer production. The dorsal side has a pronounced concave recess at the proximal end indicating that a flake had been removed before this one. Recortication has started on the striking platform, ventral and dorsal face. This recortication is present within the concave proximal zone on the dorsal side, and distal c. two-t…
