Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey flint, possibly collected from the East Coast, with patches of pale grey patina, scraper fragment. Flake with broad flakes removed from the dorsal side, faint ripples on the ventral, and with short abrupt scalar retouch following a curving edge. The opposite edge is hackled and a further extent of the object has been lost here, probably to a recent break. The patina extends over both primary and secondary working, suggesting the object endured exposure after its loss or deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 36.9mm, Width: 21.6mm, Thickness: 6mm,…

Record ID: NLM-AEF378
Object type: CHISEL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy chisel. Cast rectangular section billet with one flat end and one bevelled end. The arises are uniformly crisp, as is the cutting edge, though this is chipped on one corner. The object is very slightly flared between butt and blade; the width at the former is 9mm, and 11.6mm at the latter. The thickness is greatest towards the butt. The good condition of the object may suggest its recent disturbance from a sealed context. Suggested date: Late Bronze Age, 1000-800 BC. Length: 68.2mm, Width: 11.6mm, Thickness: 8mm, Weight: 46.04gms.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy axe head. Cast flat axe head with a flared blade with crescentic cutting edge; the blade is chamfered on both sides to a distance of c.10mm back from this edge, possibly the result of sharpening. Behind the cutting edge the section is uniformly rectangular. The axe exhibits a lentoid profile, thickest at its mid point and diminishing in thickness towards blade and butt. The cutting edge is corroded and chipped on one side only; the butt is also chipped, though without this damage extending away from it on either side. The object is broken in two pieces at its thickest poin…

Object type: TORC
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of penannular copper alloy middle Bronze Age spiral twisted torc. The fragment is 68.5mm long, 54mm of which is comprised of a twisted spiral with curved peaks (5.8mm thick) and troughs (4.5mm thick), and the remainder is narrowed to a circular section (3.2mm in diameter). The fragment has a dark green to black patina with old breaks at either end. Based on the curvature of this fragment the estimated original diameter of the whole torc would be approximately 220mm. The find is paralleled by examples found in the 'Near Lewes' hoard in 2011 cf. SUSS-C5D042 which date to the mid…

Grey flint of good quality scraper. Angular lump with broad flakes removed by angled hard hammer strike from the dorsal side and a bulb on the ventral. Very short abrupt retouch follows one straight edge. An originally sharp aris between facets of the dorsal side has been ground or battered to afford a more comfortable grip. The lack of patina may suggest this was incorporated into a sealed context shortly after its manufacture. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC.

Grey flint with cortex, with white misty patina patches on ventral surface only, scraper. Sub-triangular flake with broad angled hard hammer flake removal scars on its dorsal side and a bulb on the ventral. Short angled scalar retouch follows the curved edge. The lack of patina on the dorsal side may suggest a previously struck flake was reused after a modest period of exposure, and that the scraper was itself deposited into a sealed context a shorter period after its manufacture. The Bronze Age could accommodate both episodes. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC. Length: 43.5m…
