Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Bronze Age date, c. AD 2700-1000. The scraper is worked from a secondary flake of opaque dark grey flint mottled with paler inclusions with a small amount of cortex remaining in the centre of the dorsal face. The flake widens from the proximal to the distal end. A striking platform with a bulb of percussion on the ventral face survives at the proximal end. Negative removal scars from hinged removals from the same platform are present on the dorsal face. The flake is worked unifacially, struck from the ventral face, with relatively long, abr…

A knapped flint side scraper on a broken tertiary flake, scalar semi-abrupt directly applied retouch forming a rounded convex working edge. Most of the platform shattered away in old damage. Length down percussion axis: 29.05mm, 39.63mm maximum width, 9.23mm thick at its midpoint. Weight: 14.51g. The crude nature of this piece suggests Middle-Late Bronze Age manufacture, c. 1500-750 BC.

A Late Neolithic to Bronze Age flint scraper, probably dating to c. 3,300-800 BC. A tertiary flake of mottled beige-grey flint, with one surviving striking platform and relatively pronounced bulb of percussion, without a bulbar scar.

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy socketed gouge of late Bronze Age date, c.1100 - 650 BC. The remaining portion is a length of the hollow socket with a tapered U-shaped blade terminal to one end. The opposite end terminates in a worn break. The socket is circular with an exterior diameter of 16.4mm, interior diameter of 11.5mm and is 21.3mm deep. From the socket the blade tapers to a rounded cutting/gouging edge which is concave to one side of the body. The gouging edge is extremely worn. This gouge is most likely of Wilberton, Ewart Park or Llyn Fawr metalworking, phases which correspond…

Object type: RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast copper alloy heavy duty ring probably dating from the late Bronze Age to Late Iron Age (c. 1150 BC - AD 43). The ring is circular in plan sub-circular in section. The inside of the ring has what appears to be file marks or possibly scratches resulting from use, however these markings do not cover the entire inner surface. A couple of sections are smooth like the outside, which may suggest the presence of a strap. One area of the ring is slightly thinner than the rest; again a possible indication of use. The ring is undecorated but it has a beautiful green-brown patina w…

A fragment of a copper alloy ingot, possibly a late Bronze Age bun ingot. The lower surface is plano-convex, the upper is broken up and irregular. The plano-convex face suggests an origin in a bowl furnace rather than a mould; the irregular upper surface may suggest distortion from partial re-melting.Circa 1150 - 600 BC.

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete fine-grained granite (Roger Taylor pers comm) rubbing stone or 'muller' dating from the Middle Bronze Age. The fragment is trapezoidal in plan, plano-convex in both profile and section and represents approximately half of the original muller. It is broken at about sixty degrees to its linear axis; its remaining length is 110 mm, its width is 153 mm, thickness 60.5 mm and weight 1497.1 g. The break is recent and probably damage from agricultural equipment. The muller was made from a split beach cobble of fine-grained pinkish granite containing crystals of tourmaline, mica, fe…

Flint end scraper of probably Bronze Age date, 2200-1000 BC. The scraper is made on a thick secondary flake struck of a previous removal with a large area of cortex, inclusing an indent, remaining down on side. The flint is mottled mid-grey with lighter areas. The percussion waves on the platform and the scars from previous removals on the dorsal face suggest this was struck off a multi-platform core. There is a very large bulb of percussion on the ventral face. There is long, semi-parallel, semi abrupt retouch around the distal end on the dorsal face. There is damage and chipping, pos…

A copper alloy Thorndon type socketed knife. This has a rectangular socket at the base that has a rectangular aperture (15mm, 9mm) for the handle. There is a single rivet hole towards the base of the socket that passes through both sides and would secure the handle in place. The sides of the socket gently taper to the blade which is short and thin and terminates in a point. The spine of the blade is flat with bevelled sides that form the cutting edge.

A fragment of copper alloy blade, possibly from a Bronze Age rapier or dagger dating to 1500 - 1000BC. The fragment has a lenticular cross section and is trapezoidal in plan. There is heavy iron concretion and loss to the blade edges and surface. The portion of surviving surface on one side demonstrates a central rib formed by a tapering pair of ridges with an outer pair of ridges towards the edge of the blade.

An incomplete cast copper alloy leaf-shaped basal-looped spearhead dating to the Middle Bronze Age (c. 1500 - 1250 cal BC) probably Ehrenberg Class IIIa. The spear has a sub-circular socket which tapers to a lozenge midrib with rounded ridges on the blade. The internal diameter of the socket is 17.9mm. The socket appears to be filled with concreted material, possibly organic 'fossils' imbuded with copper alloy salts.. The spear's blade is leaf-shaped (a stretched oval) and has narrow incorporated loops with flat plates, with no decoration, on either side at the base of the blade. A l…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A near complete copper alloy Middle Bronze Age dirk (small rapier) dating to the period c.1500 - 1150 BC found in 4 adjoining pieces. The butt exhibits a series of old breaks along the lower edge which is convex curved and widens out to a maximum of 16.7 mm in width. It then tapers inwards to form two C-shaped notches on either side which are the remains of two broken rivets holes used as the attachment point for the missing handle. Both rivets are missing, and the holes are too fragmented to accurately estimate their diameter. From these rivet holes the sides of the rapier expand in…

A socketed cast spearhead, appearing to be of the Taunton phase of the Middle Bronze Age (1400-1250 BC). The main body is hollow, forming a socked for the insertion of a shaft, with two objects that resemble the loops of other phases but are unpierced at the sides. The blade is composed of two wings, emerging either side of the central body and having a concave lozenge-shaped cross section. Their widest point is 17mm before their rejoining of the body at the lower end. The very tip is broken off, and the end of the blade is bent at about 20 degrees from the vertical. The surface of th…
