Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Four Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age flint scrapers, probably dating to c. 3,300-1,600BC. 1. A thumbnail scraper worked from a reused primary or secondary flake of grey-brown flint; cortex covers those areas of the dorsal face which do not exhibit retouch, c. 60%. The flake has no clear point or bulb of percussion, with one facet of the dorsal face at the proximal end and the ventral face much more heavily patinated, suggesting the reuse of an older tool. The dorsal face exhibits long, scalar retouch, abrupt along the left edge, becoming semi-abrupt at the distal end and right edg…

An Early Bronze Age flint 'thumbnail' scraper, probably dating to c. 2400-1600 BC. Worked from a sub-oval promary flake of translucent brown flint now heavily patinated a milky white, with white cortex covering the entirety of the dorsal face, except for those areas exhibting retouch. A relatively diffuse bulb of percussion is present at the proximal end of the ventral face, with no bulbar scar. The perimeter of the dorsal face exhibits short, semi-abrupt scalar retouch, except for at the proximal end. Dimensions: length 23.8mm; width 26.9mm; thickness 7.2mm; weight 5.72g.

Object type: ARMLET
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy armlet or bracelet probably dating from the Later Bronze Age, about 1000 BC - 800 BC. It is a penannular loop with flared, expanding terminals. These are close together, leaving a gap of only about 4-6mm between them. Each terminal is circular and the ends are concave or hollow. The inner face of one terminal is rough and corroded and has gravel adhering to the concretion. The outer sides of the terminals are straight, flaring from the armlet hoop to the widest point of the terminals at the very end. The hoop is mainly D shaped in cross section and varies in diameter. It…

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragment of a late Bronze Age copper alloy socketed axe head, probably dating to 1100-800 BC. Description: The fragment survives only as the cutting edge and part of the long rectangular socketed body. The cutting edge survives intact, albeit heavily worn and runs in a very shallow convex curve, the blade tips flare slightly outwards. The surviving cross section of the socket is sub-oval. The remaing body appears to be undecorrated although with such little remaining it is not possible to be sure althoguh part of a casting seam. The axhead is patinated a mid green and the breaks ha…

A fragment of the lower part of a copper alloy socketed looped axe dating from the Late Bronze Age, i.e. c. 1000-800BC. Possibly of plain South Eastern Type. Description: The fragment survives only as the blade end. The sides curve inwards from the curved crescent blade-edge, flaring in section to a rectangle. The break across the body is irregular. The surface of the axe is heavily mottled dark to light green to dark brown in patina and is heavily pitted by corrosion across its entirety. It looks like it was not faceted or had a ribbed decoration. Masurements: 32.87mm long, 45.8mm…

An amorphic piece of copper alloy Slag of Unknown date (1150 BC-AD 1750). The surface is characterised by lumps and hollows. The slag has a deep green and brown colour with a pitted patina. The back of the object is flatted while the front is convex. Scientific analysis of the elemental composition of the copper alloy would allow a more accurate date to be suggested.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a cast copper-alloy socketed axe of Late Bronze Age date. Only the blade edge survives intact, the remainder now missing due to old breaks. The blade edge narrows to a flat tip, still relatively sharp, and is curved in form with expanded sides that narrow in towards the main section of the axe. In cross section the axe head is rectangular in plan and is hollow, showing the beginnings (or end) of a socket. The fragment has a light blue-green patina but much of this original surface is missing from one side of the blade. This is a fragment of a Late Bronze Age socketed axe,…

An incomplete copper alloy "Moustache-shaped" object probably of Middle Bronze Age to Middle Iron Age date (1500-300 BC). The object consists of two pointed drop-shaped elements (both points partially lost), D-shaped in cross-section and joined at their widest point, by a longitudinally recessed oval neck. There are multiple longitudinal grooves on the upper face on both domed sides of the object, the tapering lower parts are plain. The two moustache tips or prongs flare slightly outwards and terminate with a small rounded knop. The central neck section of the object is plain and undec…

A fragment of a copper-alloy Socketed Axehead of Bronze Age date (1150-800 BC). The object is rectangular in shape and it has an L-shaped cross section. The longer of the two retained sides retains the casting seam and a circumferential raised lip.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint possible arrowhead fragment, as kindly identified by the finder. A thin flake fragment with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a rippled ventral surface. Angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows two converging edges. A straight edge opposite the longest of these is lost to a recent break. The surface bears a pale grey patina suggesting the object has endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. If indeed an arrowhead, the triangular form suspected would ally this to Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age artefacts. Suggested date…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy primary (early) Palstave axehead dating to the Middle Bronze Age. The axehead belongs to Group I: shield-patterened types, and probably belongs to the Acton Park II or Taunton metalworking assemblages (Burgess' stages VIII and IX), dating c. 1500-1300 BC. Part of the blade is missing, though otherwise the axehead is preserved intact. It is broadly rectangular in plan, with a straight-sided rectangular butt demonstrating an 'H' shaped cross section, recessed septum and incomplete fan-shaped blade. It is lenticular in profile, with the thickest portion of …

A Flake of Prehistoric flint debitage, probably of later prehistoric date, c. 3,300-800 BC. A tertiary flake of mottled beige-brown flint exhibiting a pronounced, hinged bulb on percussion with bubar scar. The dorsal face exhibits a number of negative removal scars, struck from multiple platforms and with a number being hinged. The flake likewise has a hinged terminal at the distal end. There is extensive damage to the right edge of the dorsal face. The flake exhibits no retouch, although chattering along the dorsal edge of the striking platform may suggest the use of platform preparat…
