Copper alloy possible Palstave Axe fragment. Cast trapezoid tapering blade from a solid cast axe blade with low flanges standing 1mm high along the edges of its blade. A narrow slightly crescentic cutting edge retains its sharpness. One side bears three - originally more - faint longitudinal lines of linear stamps, each stamp 1.7mm long, which are set 1.7mm apart from each other, each individually stamped impression being set diagonally relative to the sides of the axe. The spacing indicates the tool producing these marks was also used to govern their arrangement. The other side bears…

Copper alloy possible Palstave Axe fragment. Cast fragment from the angular edge of a hollow cast object with its sides meeting each other at right angles, of overall L section. The object appears to have tapered, and the extent of bubbled material on its inside surface increases as its sides converge. The outer surface bears patches of tarry material, possibly sooting, which carry across one fracture surface and appears as a small spot on the inner surface. Suggested date: possibly Middle Bronze Age, 1601-1000 BC. Length: 40.4mm, Width: 17.6mm, Thickness: 4.4mm, Weight: 15.56gms.

Copper alloy Palstave Axe fragment. Cast butt and ridges or flanges - more on one side than on the other, giving a partial I section - from the end of a palstave axe, of comparable form to others from the locality (e.g. NLM-EE9650 and NLM-EE77E7) which are described as Type Silsden side-looped palstaves. The end of the butt is rounded, presumably by wear. The surface where this object was detached from the rest of the axe is rough and shows the pale green signs of recent corrosion. This probably represents a recent break. Suggested date: Middle Bronze Age, 1300-1150 BC. Length: 1…

Fragment from the butt of a Middle Bronze Age palstave. The object has an I -section with flanges rising on three of its four sides as viewed where it has broken, a result of the uneven break. Two of the flanges, symmetrically or diagonally opposite each other, are grooved on their outer edges. The extent of patination indicates it was broken in antiquity. A hoard of two palstave axes from this parish is currently going through Treasure process, but this object comes from a distinct findspot on higher ground. Suggested date: Middle to Late Bronze Age, 1300-1150. Length: 18.7mm, Wi…

Copper alloy Palstave Axe. Cast straight-sided axe with an elongated blade expanded to lunate form at its cutting edge. A low medial longitudinal ridge runs along both sides of the blade. The butt is flanged on both sides, with triangular flanges rising from the blade and sides, enclosing a flat septum without discernible stop, and tapering towards the back of the butt, which is also tapered. A loop of length 26.6mm and height 12mm projects from one side of the axe, springing from the back part of the blade and the adjacent part of the butt; this defines an aperture of length 7mm fr…

Copper alloy Palstave Axe. Cast axe with an elongated blade expanded to lunate form at its cutting edge. A prominent medial longitudinal ridge runs along both sides of the blade. The butt is flanged on both sides, enclosing a flat septum without discernible stop until it reaches the back of the blade, where it tapers. A possible casting flaw occurs on the mid-blade ridge on one side, with a small scab of metal close to where blade meets butt. The axe is abraded, with nicks in its cutting edge and partial loss of the flanges on both sides, and with abrasion on one side in particular;…
