Record ID: LANCUM-16229D
Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy palstave dating from the Middle Bronze Age, i.e. c. 1500-1300BC. The axe is broken at the butt but is otherwise complete with casting flashes that have been filed but are still slightly raised on the sides. It is part of the Taunton metalwork assemblage. The axe has two triangular flanges (diamond-shaped from the side) and with its small, worn semi-circular stop-ridge it could be related to the shield-pattern palstaves of the Acton Park metalwork assemblage to which it bears some resemblance. The axe is a heavy implement and complete with the two flanges and a cresce…

Object type: AWL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Incomplete cast copper alloy awl or tracer. The cente of the awl is sub-square in cross-section, and measures approximately 5 x 5mm. To one side of the centre, the awl has a circular cross-section and tapers to a complete point. To the other side there is a square cross-section which tapers slightly to a break. Plain copper-alloy awls are hard to date precisely, but ones of this form are known to have been introduced in the Bronze Age (2150-800 BC) with most being Late Bronze Age in date (1150-800 BC). SOM-990775, SOM-D995B1 and SOM-7C6ED1 on this database are similar.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Black and grey flint with cortex, scraper. Thick flake with broad flakes trimmed from its dorsal side in two episodes, sufficiently removed in time from each other for recortification to have occurred before the secondary working, and with an angular broken or hackled ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect appears to have followed a long edge, though conchoidal scars along this edge appear to have been caused by impacts along to that edge rather than working. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 40.7mm, Width: 30.8mm, Thickne…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper of probable early Bronze Age date, circa 2350 - 1600 BC. The flint has no cortex remaining and is therefore a tertiary flint. The flake is sub-ovate in plan and plano-convex in section. The ventral side is smooth with a low bulb of percussion with ripples emanating from it. The dorsal side has three parallel flakes removed and has long, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch to the left mesal. The flake is pale grey in colour with paler spots. Length 45.4mm, width 27.6mm, thickness 7.5mm. Weight 10.0gm.

Record ID: LANCUM-B155C3
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy flat axe dating to the Early-Mid Bronze Age (2350 - 1500 BC). The axe is narrow with straight but tapering sides and there are no signs of a stop ridge. The sides of the axe are very slightly thickened, but it does not have flanges. The metal is dark green in colour with a heavily pitted and corroded patina. The axe probably fits into the earliest phases of metal working in Britain, metalworking stage I-II, which corresponds to Needham's (1996) Period 1-2 circa 2500- 2050 CAL. BC, or slightly later. Similar examples can be seen on the Portable Antiquities Database:…

Grey flint with cortex strip, scraper. Thick oval flake with broad flakes removed from its dorsal surface, which is ridged with a longitudinal positive hinged fracture, and with a bulbar ventral surface and a broad striking platform. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved end. One side is battered. A misty patina suggests the object was exposed for a relatively short period to a calcareous environment after its deposition. This is disrupted by minor episodes of fortuitous later damage. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 37.…

County: Lincolnshire

Grey flint with cortex spot, possible debitage. Thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by multi-directional angled hard hammer working. The ventral surface is rippled and slightly concave. This might represent an abortive attempt to make a tool such as a fabricator or a plano-convex knife. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 50.7mm, Width: 23.6mm, Thickness: 10.6mm, Weight: 12.33gms.

Dark grey flint with cortex, possibly collected from the East Coast, scraper fragment. Thick flake with invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect following one end and side and with a slightly concave ventral surface. Part of the scraper is lost, with either battering or crystaline heat damage along the broken edge. The working edge of the scraper is also battered. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

Flint scraper. Rounded thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and a bulb on the ventral. Short angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curving edge; battering appears near the bulb, an area probably serving as a pointed butt. Thick milky patina suggests the object endured long exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

Pale grey flint barbed and tanged arrowhead. Sub-triangular flake with covering angled scalar retouch across both sides. Short abrupt retouch executed from both dorsal and ventral aspects defines a short slightly pointed tang; there are no barbs nor sign of their loss though the edge is chipped.

Pale grey flint with cortex, scraper. Round flake with some cortex trimmed by angled working and with a bulb on its ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curving edge. Patches of misty patina have formed over all struck surfaces, but were subsequently removed in limited zones, particularly at the butt. At the latter site, this appears to be the result of angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect, but elsewhere may have arisen from fortuitous impacts.

Grey flint fabricator fragment. A thick rod with rounded end, of a massy lentoid section, formed by overall/covering angled scalar retouch; the size of flakes detached must argue hard hammer working. The object was possibly lightly trimmed at its butt end, perhaps after breakage. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 59.4mm, Width: 30.2mm, Thickness: 16.9mm, Weight: 34.86gms

Grey flint with cortex, possibly collected from the East Coast, lithic implement. Long flake with cortex trimmed by the removal of long parallel flakes, and with a bulb on the ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect trimmed the narrower end. Either very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect, or damage arising from use, appears along the putative cutting edge. The opposite edge is trimmed flat so as to permit pressure to be exerted. At the other end, cortex is trimmed by short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect, so the …

Grey flint scraper. Oval flake with cortex trimmed by short abrupt retouch of the dorsal side following one curving end, and with a bulb on its ventral surface. These areas accumulated a misty patina suggesting their exposure to a calcareous environment. This was perhaps interrupted by a further episode of short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect at the opposite end to the original working face, though later damage has also occurred there.
