Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Red-brown flint lithic implement. A thick flake with a sub-triangular point at one end. The dorsal side bears the rippled scar from the removal of a large flake by hard hammer strike; the ventral surface is flat. Short angled retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the longest curving edge. This is limited by one of the slightly concave sides of a worn point, suggesting use of that part of the object as a borer. The opposite edge to the point bears possibly angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect, though some or all of these shallow scars may be the result of for…

Object type: FERRULE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy possible ferrule, bead or ring from the late Bronze Age. The ring was found relatively close to a Bronze Age chisel of Ewart Park/Llyn Fawr date (NMS-523D79) and matches it very closely in colouration and patina. The object is 9.5mm long and annular in cross section with a 17mm outside diameter. One end is flat but the other is curved on its outside edge diameter and slightly lipped internally. The lipping is coincident with a flattened cross section suggesting it has been impacted at these points. With this exception the object has a smooth moulded surface suggesting it h…

A complete small copper alloy socketed and side-looped spearhead dating from the Early Middle Bronze Age, c. 1600-1400BC. The head is leaf-shaped and the socket has a pronounced midrib. The tip of the spearhead is thicker than the rest of the blade and there are very fine, very clear re-sharpening marks all around the edges of the wings, running parallel to it. The hollow of the socket extends into the spear. It is circular and tapers towards the tip, becoming lozengiform in cross section as it develops into the solid mid-rib between the blades. There are two small, oval, pierced side …

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a cast copper alloy Late Bronze Age socketed axe probably dating to the period c.950 - 750BC. The axe is probably a Faceted Axe, type Gillespie sometimes known as 'baggy axe'. These axes have been discovered in associated with the late Wilburton metalworking traditions (phase XI) and the Ewart Park tradition (phase XII). This corresponds to Needham's (1996) Period 6-7 circa 1000-700 CAL. BC. It is trapezoidal in shape and has a narrowed, triangular profile. The axe fragment consists of the lower portion of the axe that contain the slightly expanded cutting edge and the s…

Tip of cast copper-alloy Bronze Age spear head (c. 2350 - 801 BC). The spear tip fragment is 33.98mm in length with a width of 14.89mm and a maximum thickness of 7.35mm. The weight of the spear tip is 8.54g. The fragment is lancet shaped and tapers to a point. It has a profile of a circle with a narrow blade protruding centrally from either side, resulting in a ridge running up the centre of the spear head. The edges of the spear tip have sustained damaged and are highly worn and dented. Corrosion of the copper-alloy has resulted in a smooth dark green patina. Not enough of the spearhe…

Grey flint with cortex, scraper. A thick flake with broad flakes and cortex removed from the dorsal side by hard hammer strike and with a concave ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a straight edge; an adjacent edge is battered so this working may have been more extensive than what remains.

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy Middle Bronze Age unlooped palstave axehead (c.1500-c.1300 BC). The palstave shares typological features with Group I and Group II palstaves. These were the primary forms introduced to Britain in the Middle Bronze Age Schmidt and Burgess 1981). This particular axehead is probably a Group I (shield-pattern) type from the Acton Park phase of Bronze Age metalwork, distinguished by its shield-shaped decoration below the stop ridge (ibid.p.119). The axe is sub-triangular in plan and sub-rectangular in section, tapering to the blade terminal. The blade is narrow taper…

Copper Alloy Late Bronze Age socketed gouge. The gouge has a circular mouth (17mm outside diameter) and single raised flanged collar at the opening. In plan it tapers over the majority of its 84.5mm length but flares out in the final 15mm to form a C-shaped cross-section cutting edge. The cutting edge extends back in a V-shaped flute to restore the full circular section around 12mm short of the mouth of the gouge. Casting seams are evident on either side of the gouge which are set in the horizontal plane when the flute is placed uppermost. The socket contains extensive remains of the w…

Object type: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An almost complete cast copper alloy socketed axe of late Bronze Age date (950 - 750 BC). The axe is relatively short and stubby with faceted sides. Probably Type Portree or possibly Gillespie. These axes have been discovered in associated with the late Wilburton metalworking traditions (phase XI) and the Ewart Park tradition (phase XII). This corresponds to Needham's (1996) Period 6-7 circa 1100-900cal BC. The object is sub-rectangular in plan with the cutting edge expanding outwards to form a convex cutting edge. The cutting edge has been recently damaged, probably due to the plough…

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Unpatinated arrowhead of mottled dark grey flint, made from a tertiary semi-hard hammer struck flake, with invasive pressure flake scars to both faces, the piece is damaged at the tip of the point. This arrowhead is of unusual form, the main body being ogival in plan, and having a prominent tang, but with the barbs merely "stepped" in from the sides rather than invasively notched from the base. Likely to be of Green, S. (1980) Sutton type A. Early Bronze Age: 2350 to 1700 BC.

Record ID: NMS-C2FBC6
Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, hard hammer struck flake of pale, mottled grey patination with some recent damage (including the loss of one rear corner) revealing the orgional dark grey flint beneath. One edge is steeply retouched by pressure flaking to form a continious platform for invasive flaking on the opposite face, the other edge is bifacially, and semi-invasively pressure flaked. Given the triangular plan form and the initial passes of pressure flaking, it is likely that this piece is an unfinished barbed and tanged arrowhead, Early Bronze Age: 2350 to 1700 BC.

Plano-convex flint knife, made from a primary blade-like flake of good quality unpatinated semi-translucent grey flint, the dorsal face is almost covered with invasive pressure flake scars and only a small patch of cortex remains to the central part of the dorsal face near the proximal end. The distal end appears to be recently damaged on one edge. See Clarke, J.G.D. (1932a) for discussion on the dating and associated finds.
