Copper alloy spearhead. Cast socketed side-looped spearhead with an ogival blade with pronounced mid rib, and with a slightly flared socket retaining a partial loop on one side, and a complete loop made up of a flat rhomboid plate or scab of thickness 0.5mm elevated by c.2mm above the body of the socket on the other. The cutting edges of the blade appear lightly bevelled by sharpening, and the extreme point of the tip is lost. Broken in two pieces recently, though probably not actually at the time of its discovery; a ?third part of the socket appears to have been absent at the time of …

County: Oxfordshire

A fragment of a small cast copper alloy socketed spearhead, probably of the side looped type and dating to the early Middle Bronze Age, c.1600-1400BC. Side-looped spearheads are Class IV and date from the early Middle Bronze Age. They are likely to belong to the Acton Park 2, Taunton (Cemmaes) or Penard metalwork assemblages, corresponding to Needham's (1997) Period 5 (1500-1150 BC). Although the size of this object suggests a votive use this is not the case. Other examples of small spearheads are known including GLO-F69302, LANCUM-B72611, LANCUM-0433B7 and SWYOR-3D024E on this dat…

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper-alloy early phase palstave dating to the Middle Bronze Age (c. 1500-1300 BC): The blade of the palstave is sub-trapezoidal in plan with slightly concave sides, flared blade tips, and no side loop. The cutting edge is slightly abraded on one edge although this appears to cut through the patina suggesting post-depositional damage. The sides of the blade are concave in plan, and this curvature stops at the junction of the blade and flange side. In profile the blade is sub-triangular with the widest section being before the stop ridge. The stop ridge has a small hole be…

A complete, cast copper alloy flanged axehead of middle Bronze Age date, c.1400-1250BC. The blade tapers in thickness to the edge with no edge bevel. The axehead is sub-rectangular in plan with a narrow, squared butt end. The flanges start a short way in from the butt corners and form a pointed oval shape in profile with the crest of the flange being the widest point. The exterior surfaces of the flanges are slightly concaved and no casting lines are visible. The flanges terminate approximately mid-way along the body. There is no obvious stop ridge for the handle to butt against althou…

A late Middle to early Late Bronze Age (1500 - 1100 BC) copper alloy dirk. The butt is trapezoid in form with shoulders that curve inwards to the narrow blade. Two rivet holes to the bottom of either side would secure the hilt in place, both of which still retains its rivet; the rivet is 11.5mm long with a 7.4mm diameter and has a slightly expanded domed head at either terminal. The sides of the blade are straight and gradually taper to the point, running down the length of the blade on both sides is a very low central spine. Post depositional corrosion has resulted in shallow notches …

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Bronze Age copper alloy fragment of a socketed axe which comprises the blade cutting section, most of which is intact. The rest is broken away as a result of old damage. The socket is triangular in profile. Dates to the Ewart Park phase, c. 1000 - 800 BC. This axe cannot be typified more exactly due to the lack of more diagnostic features such as the socket mouth, mouldings and side-loop.
