Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy looped socketed axe dating from the Late Bronze Age or Early Iron Age, c. 800-700BC. The axe is either a transitional axe or an axe of Type Sompting, Variant Cardiff II dating from the Early Iron Age. The axe is complete except for the missing loop. All surfaces are very worn and abraded. The patina is dark green with many patches of surface damage. The blade appears shaped, worn and re-sharpened. The axe has a circular or square mouth (unknown as only two images were submitted) and is decorated with three long moulded ribs that terminate in small flat pellets. This d…

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint arrowhead. A small thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a flat to slightly concave ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows both sides of a triangular point and defines a narrow tang. The object appears to have been made as a barbed and tanged arrowhead lacking the barbs, and is somewhat thick to be a penetrating or cutting weapon. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 34mm, Width: 16.8mm, Thickness: 4.7mm, Weight: 2.36gms

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A scraper fabricated on a natural flake of dark brown flint, recorticated to an orange colour on one face and with extensive, cream-coloured cortex remaining on the opposing face. The flake is sub-triangular in plan with one edge worked using short, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch to form a scraping edge. The rest of the flake is unworked. .This crude type of tool, utilising a natural flake, is typical of flint working during later Prehistory.

A scraper fabricated on a natural flake of mottled pale brown and grey flint with a single, small area of cream-coloured cortex remaining. There is some creamy-white recortification on one face. One edge of the flake has been worked using short, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch to form a deep, concave scraping edge or large notch. The rest of the circumference of the flake has been worked using coarse, short, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch to soften the sharp edges, presumably to make it more comfortable to use in the hand. This crude type of tool, utilising a natural flake, is typical of flin…

Record ID: LANCUM-9DF379
Object type: METAL WORKING DEBRIS
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of copper alloy found in a burnt mound dating at least to the Early to mid Bronze Age 2150 to 1150BC. The copper is not sheet metal and appears to have been cast as one piece as part of a larger object. It is not yet known what this object was. It should be possible to refine the dating once the charcoal samples are dated from the burnt mound which was the subject of an evaluation associated with treasure case 2016 T518 database number LANCUM-A5AF1B. The length is 48mm, the width is 35mm.

Grey flint knife. Narrow flake with a long flake struck from its dorsal side and with a flat and slightly rippled ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows one long edge and round the wider end with shorter abrupt retouch following the opposite long edge and carried up to the other, slightly narrower, end; this side is battered. The retouch approached the production of a plano-convex section though the slight hollowing of the upper or dorsal surface would improve grip while the abrupt retouch may have permitted pressure to be brought to bea…

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a Late Bronze Age copper alloy Socketed Axehead (c.1150BC - 800BC). The cutting edge of the axehead flares outwards to form a convex cutting edge which is complete, relatively unworn, quite sharp to the touch and is 49.1mm wide. In side view it is 'V' shaped and the casting seam is visible on both concave sides. The seam is closer to one face than the other. At the broken end of the axehead are the remains of a socket 18.2mm long, 2.5mm wide and 1.8mm deep. The break is irregular and old but not particularly worn. The metal has a mid-green, glossy patina. The axehead i…

A copper alloy, flanged, palstave axehead, dating from the Arreton phase of the Middle Bronze Age, about 1700 - 1500 BC. It has flanged parallel sides, the butt end is squared off, with rounded corners, and there is a crescent shaped blade with upturned corners. There is a very shallow stop ridge, now difficult to discern. In side elevation the septum and flanges are in the form of a very slender oval and the outer sides of the flanges are decorated with a moulded, diagonal, ropework pattern that is a characteristic of the Arreton phase. Other than some abrasion around the butt end and…
