Object type: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
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…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Flintshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A copper alloy early Bronze Age flat axe head dating to the period c. 2100-1900BC. The axe was probably part of the Migdale metalworking tradition. It is complete, but very worn. The axe head has a rounded butt which exhibits some old damage. It widens along its length from 16mm at the butt end to 39mm at the blade end. There is some damage to the blade. The object is has a brown patina and surface is slightly pitted. Only very small patches of the original surface survive on the lower part of the body towards the cutting edge. Length: 95mm; width at blade end: 39mm; thickness: 6mm; w…

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint coarse retouched flake probably dating to the later Bronze Age. The object is triangular in cross-section with the remains of cortex on one side of the dorsal face. At the proximal end is a large triangular striking platform while a small (possibly accidental) triangular platform is at the distal end. Along the long edge the retouch is short, sub-parallel and at a low angle. A small amount of retouch is also on the opposite edge where the cortex has been removed. It is also short, sub-parallel and low angled. The flint has a dark grey cortex and a toffee brown to light cream mo…

County: Lincolnshire

Grey flint with cortex spots, scraper. Small thick flake with invasive angled scalar retouch to the dorsal side and an undulating ventral surface. A dense misty patina suggests the object has endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition; chips removing this patina are adventitious and recent. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 24.3mm, Width: 26.5mm, Thickness: 11.6mm, Weight: 9.04gms

Grey flint knife. A thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and a bulbar ventral surface. Long angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows one long edge. The other side of the same edge is trimmed by short scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect, with similar working along part of the opposite edge. The lack of patina may suggest the object was incorporated into a sealed context shortly after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

Pale grey flint lithic implement. A D-shaped flake with its straight edge and butt formed by a positive hinged fracture. Broad flakes have been struck from the dorsal side with a bulb on the ventral. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved edge except for one short extent, where very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect modifies the cutting edge to provide a small scraping tool. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 25.7mm, Width: 40.8mm, Thickness: 7.1mm, Weight: 8.53gms

Grey flint with cortex, knife. Flake with a bulb on the ventral surface. Angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect trims a patch of cortex, leaving a neat crescentic edge between the unworked and worked parts. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect may represent either the finishing of the cutting edge or its renewal. Narrow chips have also been removed by retouch or adventitious damage falling on the edge of the ventral surface opposite the cutting edge, perhaps to assist handling. Patches of misty patina on struck surfaces suggest a period of exposure t…

Grey flint with cortex possibly collected from the East Coast, knife. Flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface. Dense milky patina on struck surfaces suggests a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. The patina is interrupted by very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect following part of one long edge, suggesting the reuse of an old struck flake. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 22.5mm, Width: 23.3mm, Thickness: 6.8mm, Weight: 3.51gms

Grey flint scraper. Oval flake with cortex patch with broad flakes trimmed from its dorsal side and a bulbar ventral surface. Angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge, and this was subsequently battered on one side. Dense misty patina on struck surfaces suggests a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Subsequent very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect has removed the patina from that part of the previous working edge which had not incurred damage. Both episodes may be accommodated within the Early Bronze Age. Suggested date…

Flint scraper. Sub-triangular flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal surface by angled hard hammer working and with a bulb on the ventral surface. Angled scalar invasive retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge of the flake. A chip to one side of the worked zone represents damage incurred in antiquity. Dense white patina on all struck surfaces suggests the object has endured prolonged exposure in a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

Pale grey flint with a patina comprising numerous white flecks, knife. Sub-triangular flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by angled hard hammer working and with a bulb on its ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows one straight side to form a cutting edge. As this interrupts patina, a previously discarded flake may have been reused.
