Object type: HOARD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Late Bronze Age hoard described by the finder as being found in an area 'the size of a table top'. Although the patination (darker green with little or no corrosion) and breaks of objects Nos. 1 - 3 are very similar, they do not re-fit. 1. A fragment from the mouth of a Late Bronze Age socketed axe head with a shallow and not well defined moulding at the rim and broken across a second shallow moulding. The breaks are irregular and unabraded but not recent. Now separate, but within socket of another axe (No. 4) when found. It has not been possible to assign the axe to a typological …

Object type: HOARD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Late Bronze Age hoard consisting of 17 objects or fragments of objects discovered during metal-detecting in an area "8 paces by 10 paces" in plough soil. None of the fragments join and none seem likely to be parts of the same object. It is highly likely that two socketed axe heads previously recorded from the same area in 1988 and 1955 also formed part of this hoard, and also possible that a palstave axe head found in the same area in 1969 formed part of the original deposit. All the aforementioned finds are recorded on Norfolk County Council Historic Environment Record (No. 24951).…
