Record ID: DUR-88691D
Object type: DIRK
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Cast copper alloy dirk dating from the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1500-1300BC. Related to dirks with ill- or poorly defined butts or possible damaged butts (because of rehafting) (Burgess and Gerloff 1981, nos. 217-266). The dirk survives in good condition with an even olive green patina covering most of the surface. There are some patches of corrosion in the centres and towards the butt ends on both obverse and reverse and there is damage around the outside edges. The rivets are missing and there is considerable damage around the rivet holes. The olive patinated surface is smooth: the dir…

Object type: CASTING WASTE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An undated copper alloy object, a fragment of casting debris (a casting jet) from metal working. The object is cone-shaped with a deep well in the centre and a thick stubby runner beneath, which would have flowed into the mould. The runner has several incised lines around it that may be tooling marks from when the jet was detatched from the mould, or may indeed be evidence of the tool working on the mould itself. The casting jet has a light green patina with much blackened material across and around it. Although it is not possible to identify the period with certainty, the patina s…

Object type: AXE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy unlooped palstave axe probably dating to the Middle Bronze Age palstave 1300 to 1150BC. The axe is of unusual form and shares similarities with the Taunton metalwork assemblage and Hotham related to the palstaves of the Acton Park metalwork assemblage to which it bears some resemblance similar to Needham et al fig 140 (1985) and Read (1995: p.3 fig 9 ) dated 1200BC. The axe is almost complete and is relatively long with a length of 146mm. The butt is slightly concave and has a width of 28mm. The flanges are flat, longiform in plan, straight and parallel as far as the …

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A looped and socketed copper alloy spear head dating from the Middle Bronze Age, about 1550 - 1250 BC. It seems to fit into Davis's Group 2 (2017). It has a triangular blade with ribs on each blade wing, and a prominant midrib, lozenge shaped in cross-section. The socket is circular in cross-section and the socket extends just into the base of the blade midrib. There is a side loop on each side of the socket, positioned very close to the end of the object, away from the blade. The spear head is 124.5mm long, 30.4mm wide and 20.6mm thick. It weighs 103.49gm. The internal diameter of the…

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast copper alloy socketed and side looped spearhead of Middle Bronze Age date (c. 1400-1250 BC). The spearhead has a short but slender kite-shaped blade with only the very tip missing. The socket is circular and tapers from the open mouth in to the shaft between the blade's wings. There are two lozenge-shaped undrilled 'loops' located nearly equidistant between the socket mouth and the balde. The mouth of the socket is ever-so-slightly recessed from the main socket. A small number of spearheads with undrilled loops have recently been recorded from across Oxfordshire; fr…

Object type: RAPIER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy rapier dating from the Middle to Late Bronze Age (c. 1400 - 1100 BC). The rapier is of the notched-butt type having a butt that is trapezoid in form with shoulders that curve inwards to the narrow blade. Two rivet holes through the butt show how the blade was secured into a wooden or bone handle; one of the notches still retains its copper alloy rivet which is cylindrical with an expanded domed head at either terminal. The blade is mostly straight and only tapers towards the point. A prominant midrib can be seen down the length of the blade, which has been bent in an…

Dark chocolate brown flint scraper. A thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike, and with a prominent bulb and adjacent concavity on its ventral surface. This distinctive non-local material is usually associated with objects of an earlier date than is suggested by the form and perfunctory finish of this object.

Dark brown flint scraper. A thick flake with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, with a positive hinge fracture to one side. The ventral surface is trimmed by covering angled scalar hard hammer retouch. The thin edges of the tool are battered, presumably by its use, and a series of chips appearing on both surfaces may suggest recurrent edge-on impact was a feature of this use. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 35.8mm, Width: 36.5mm, Thickness: 10.1mm, Weight: 12.66gms

Grey-brown flint scraper. An irregular chunk with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by multi-directional hard hammer strike, and with a marked concavity occupying most of its ventral surface. Smaller flakes may have been removed by hard hammer strike from the ventral aspect, though these scars might include later adventitious damage. Short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows one curved end, possibly as reworking of a discarded and cruder tool. Suggested date: Early to Middle Bronze Age, 2350-1000 BC.

Dark grey flint possible scraper. A small fragment of a nodule, of plano-convex form, but with a naturally smooth dorsal surface rather than one facetted by knapping. . The ventral surface is flat. One edge in particular bears signs of battering, and the rest of the edge is intermittently chipped. Patches of misty patina may suggest the object has endured a limited period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

Grey flint scraper. A thumbnail scraper with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface. Covering angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved edge. A pair of thin flakes was trimmed from the ventral surface, trimming the bulb. Misty patina patches have developed over all struck surfaces, indicating the object has subsequently endured exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

Pale grey-buff flint, scraper. A thumbnail scraper with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a wavy ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved end. Misty white patina on struck surfaces may suggest the object was exposed to a calcareous environment after its deposition; this is removed in small patches by probably recent impacts.

Dark grey to black flint, plano-convex knife. A thick flake with covering angled scalar retouch across its dorsal side and with a flat ventral surface. The finder notes the form of the object resembles an arrowhead, though it is too thick and massy to have served as such. This form may arise from battering in antiquity at one side of one end, and the more recent loss of an adjacent chip. The dorsal surface bears a flecking of white patina, and the ventral surface bears a denser spread of similar markings. This tends to suggest that the object has endured exposure to a calcareous enviro…

Grey flint with cortex, possibly collected from the East Coast; scraper. Thumbnail scraper with broad flakes of cortex trimmed from the dorsal side and with a slightly concave ventral surface. Dense milky patina deleoped over the struck surfaces, suggesting a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. This was subsequently removed by short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect following a curved edge. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.
