Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint scraper. Small flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and a convex ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch and invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follow a curved end. 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. Length: 24.1mm, Width: 19.0mm, Thickness: 5.8mm, Weight: 3.35gms.

County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Bronze Age spearhead fragment, of uncertain type; chronology; Middle to Late Bronze Age, c. 1500 - 800BC. The spearhead is fragmentary with only the tip surviving. The fragment with a length of 30.91mm and a weight of 8.82 grammes has broken across the blade in antiquity and near the end of a sub-circular socket of 3.62mm diameter, at the break and with a surviving depth of 8.6mm, positioned slightly off-centre. The fragment has a prominent rounded midrib giving the spearhead a maximum surviving thickness of 7.54mm and a maximum surviving width of 16.71mm. The midrib declines slightly…

Copper alloy spear head. Cast socketed spearhead with a blade of leaf-shaped form with a prominent tapering mid rib which extends to the tip, and - joining, though found separately - one side of a slightly flared tubular socket. The edges, particularly the cutting edges of the blade, are abraded, with a patinated surface disrupted here and elsewhere. The socket fragment displays a perceptible aris between what may be the two halves of the mould, with the surface to one side of it here appearing flat on the outside. The short broad form may suggest this to be from a peghole fastened spe…

County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Late Bronze Age copper-alloy implement, probably an awl or chisel (1000 BC-801 BC). This implement is rectangular in cross-section at one end and circular in cross-section at the opposite end. At one end the sides are parallel and taper to a point in side view producing a slightly curved cutting edge. The opposite end tapers to a point. This object is light green with a patchy dark green patina. Length: 38.6mm; width at cutting edge: 5.7mm; thickness at centre: 4.0mm. Weight: 3.01g.

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy palstave of the Middle Bronze Age Acton Park II period c. 1500-1400 BC. The palstave has a deep flange with upright stop; the butt of the palstave narrows slightly from the septum. Casting lines are visible on either side and there does not appear to be a side loop (unlooped palstave). The blade of the palstave flares gently outwards from the stop and although the blade tips are damaged it does not appear to have had a pronounced crescentic cutting edge. There is a narrow linear indentation on one face of the palstave on the blade below the stop which may be the…

Flint scraper. Thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curving edge. The bulb has been trimmed by a single angled hard hammer strike executed from the ventral aspect, probably to facilitate handling. A dense white patina overall indicates that the object endured prolonged exposure after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 37.4mm, Width: 41.2mm, Thickness: 13.6mm, Weight: 24.25gms.

Object type: RAZOR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy possible razor fragment. Cast triangular section object with two angled surfaces meeting at a straight aris and a cutting edge which curves at one end to meet a straight back, which is indented, probably by fortuitous damage. The flat back may suggest the object to have been cast in an open mould. The form of the section and the lower side as cast appear to represent a skeuomorphic imitation of a flint tool, which might suggest a date in the earlier part of the proposed range. However, the use of metal for a relatively secular purpose would presuppose its wider availabilit…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of probable Late Neolithic or Bronze Age date (c. 3000-1500 BC). The implement has been manufactured on a struck flake of dark black flint with small white inclusions. The flake has had its platform intentionally removed, although the presence of two prominent cones of percussion indicates that hard hammer percussion was probably the method of detachment. Secondary modification of the piece is limited to a small patch of retouch on the proximal end which incorporates a small shallow notch, as well as another small patch on the mesial section of the d…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint side-scraper or retouched flake of probably Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date, c. 3000-1500 BC. The tool has been manufactured on a tertiary flake of light grey flint which in places lightenes to a yellowy off-white colour. In plan view, the flake curves round slightly, with several negative flake scars visible on its upper surface. The bulb of percussion and platform have been intentionally removed by the knapper, possibly as a way of making the tool easier to hold. Secondary modification of the piece consists rather widely-spaced direct and semi-abrupt…

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete struck flint notched flake of probable Late Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 3000-1500 BC. The tool has been manufactured on a tertiary flake of light reddish brown flint intermixed with grey patches, with c. 10% cortex remaining on its dorsal face. Several flake negatives are visible on this upper surface, while on the ventral side a prominent bulb of percussion and bulbar scar indicates that the support was probably originally detached through use of a hard hammer. Part of the platform has splintered away, probably on original detachment. At the mesial section of the dorsa…

A copper-alloy awl, probably dating from the Late Bronze Age The widest part of the awl is approximately one third of the way along its length; either side of this point, the piece tapers. The longer portion is of rectangular cross section, displays evidence of filing on its surfaces and tapers to a wedge-shaped terminal. The remaining third also has a broadly rectangular cross section, but in this portion the corners have been deliberately removed, probably by filing. The patinated surfaces are almost black in some areas, perhaps suggesting that a coating was applied in antiquity. L…

Grey flint scraper. Thick round flake with a broad flake struck from its dorsal side and with a very slightly concave smooth ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows round the edge, except for one area which is lightly battered and may have served as a butt. Dense misty patina suggests the object endured prolonged exposure after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge, leaving cortex at the striking platform to serve as a butt.

Grey flint scraper fragment. A small flake with a single flake struck from its dorsal side and a bulb on the ventral. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curving edge; one or both sides may be lost to subsequent damage.
