Record ID: BERK-475C01
Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An almost complete cast copper alloy developed flat axe with hammer raised flanges of later Early Bronze Age date (c. 2000 CAL BC to c. 1700 CAL BC). Only the tip of one blade edge is missing, otherwise the axehead is in very good condition. The axehead is broadly sub rectangular in plan with a splayed crescent shaped blade. In profile it is broadly lentoid, with slight tapering edges and in cross section it is almost H-shaped, formed by the raised flanges down either edge.

Brown flint with cortex scraper. Thumbnail scraper. A thick flake with invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect following a curved edge, and with a bulbar ventral surface. The lack of patina may suggest this was incorporated into a sealed context shortly after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 22.5mm, Width: 27.6mm, Thickness: 12.5mm, Weight: 6.63gms.

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey flint knife. Triangular flake with broad parallel flakes trimmed from its dorsal side and trimmed by multangular angled hard hammer working on the ventral. One long edge is lightly battered, presumably from use, while the opposite long edge is flat, affording a finger or thumb rest. The trimming of both sides was so economically executed as to give the appearance more usually associated with covering scalar retouch, while the resemblance to the form of a projectile point is probably misleading. Thick white patina has accumulated overall, and its loss at edges is the result of…

Dark grey flint with possibly reformed cortex, scraper. A thick flake with broad flakes trimmed from its dorsal side and a bulb on the ventral surface. Angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge, and also provides a flat butt against which pressure might have been exerted. Patches of misty white patina developed over the struck surfaces, suggesting the object endured a period of exposure after its deposition, though patina is lost at one point on the working edge due to recent damage. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 34.2mm, Widt…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey buff flint with cortex spot, scraper. A small hollow scraper. An irregular flake with two broad flakes trimmed from its dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral surface. Misty white patina developed over struck surfaces during a period of exposure to weathering. A curving notch is formed by subsequent very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect which has removed patina. Both episodes of working could be accommodated within the Early Bronze Age. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 26.0mm, Width: 31.3mm, Thickness: 5.3mm, Weight: 3.75gms.

Dark grey flint plano-convex knife. Knife or 'slug knife'. A thick elongated leaf shaped flake with covering angled scalar retouch of its dorsal side and a near-flat ventral surface. Misty white patina has developed on all struck surfaces, suggesting the object was exposed to weathering for a period after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

Dark grey flint with cortex spot scraper. Thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and a bulbar ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge. Part of the working edge may be lost to damage of uncertain, possibly recent, date. Very slight misty patches of patina may suggest the object was exposed to weathering for a brief period after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 32.9mm, Width: 27.5mm, Thickness: 10.3mm, Weight: 9.16gms.

Grey flint scraper. A small thumbnail scraper with a broad flake trimmed from its dorsal side and a bulbar ventral surface.

Grey flint scraper. An irregular struck flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral surface. Misty patina developed over these struck surfaces suggesting a period of weathering. The patina was then disrupted by very short abrupt retouch along one concave edge executed from the ventral aspect. If the intention was to produce a shaft-straightening hollow, an Early Bronze Age date might be inferred. That long period could have accommodated both episodes of working.

Dark grey flint lithic implement. Flake with two broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a flat rippled ventral surface. Angled invasive scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved end, while very short abrupt retouch defines a notch in one side, and forms a cutting edge along the opposite long edge. A complete lack of patina may suggest this object was incorporated into a sealed deposit very shortly after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

Pale purple-grey flint with cortex knife. Thick flake with broad flakes trimmed from both its dorsal and ventral surfaces by angled hard hammer working, and with short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect following a long curving edge. The opposite edge is battered, possibly to afford a thumb rest when the knife was in use, supplementing a conve4nient hollow arising from the initial working. A very light misty patina may suggest the object was exposed for only a short period after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 42.9mm, Width: 31.8mm,…

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint barbed and tanged arrowhead of Early Bronze Age date (c. 2500-1500 BC). The arrowhead is a light grey in colour, with no patination visible and small white inclusions scattered throughout the flint. Only small patches of the original flake surface remain, though this example was probably manufactured on a tertiary soft hammer flake. The piece has been intensely pressure-flaked in order to thin and shape the piece. A small amount of the tip is missing, probably due to an impact, and some minimal lateral edge-damage is visible on one face, slightly below the tip. The tang…

Object type: RAPIER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Middle Bronze Age blade fragment from either a rapier or dagger. It is probably a rapier as the thickness of the central rib consistent along its length though it does seem rather thin (3mm). The fragment is roughly lozenge / sub-diamond shaped in plan with the shorter (upper) end being shouldered. It is lenticular in cross-section with a rounded central ridge that runs along the full length of the fragment on both faces. The blade has been bent out of true by 30°, probably prior to deposition. It was found on a site that appears to have waterlogged in antiquity, suggesting that it …

Object type: GOUGE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A nearly complete cast copper-alloy socketed gouge dating to the Ewart Park phase of the Bronze Age, Needham's (1996) Phase 7, that is c. 1100 to 800 BC. The socketed end of the gouge has a circular section and an internal diameter of 16 mm. The end of the socket, which may have been collared or just lipped, is now missing due to an old break. The gouge tapers down its length into a C-shaped section, with a furrow widening down the length from the open socket. The furrow widens from a point to c. 9mm. A gouge of this type would have been used for woodworking. Similar examples are recor…
