A fragment of a copper alloy mid to late Bronze Age (and into the early Iron Age) socketed axe. Only a small section of the socketed end survives survive. This is curved in profile with a raised rounded rim along the outer face of the socket end. The breaks are well worn. Both faces have the remains of a dark brown shiny patina in places, but this has worn away on the raised sections. Socketed axes were in use during the mid to late Bronze Age, from c.1300-700 BC. Length: 35.90mm, width: 24.49mm, thickness: 7.02mm, weight: 20.58g

An incomplete cast copper-alloy axe of Bronze Age date. Only the corner of the blade end survives intact, the remainder now missing due to old breaks. It is rectangular in form, triangular section with one side and part of the sharpened blade surviving. The fragment has a dark green patina and measures 15.90mm in width, 9.86mm in length, 5.09mm in thickness and 2.33g in weight. This is a fragment from the blade of a Bronze Age axe, however due to the preservation of the object it is uncertain whether it belongs to a flat axe, a palstave or socketed axe. It may therefore date to any po…

A Late Bronze Age socketed axe fragment. It consists of a short length of one side of the socket with one side loop, through which the longitudinal casting seam can be seen. The side loop is rectangular and creates a narrow, oval-shaped opening. Unusually, traces of a casting rib are present on the inside of the socket, which would normally be smooth. The metal is worn, with a dark patina and patches of corrosion. The fragment measures 43.3mm in length, 21.12mm in width and weighs 24.48g. The side loop is 21.7mm in length and 9.35mm in width.

An incomplete socketed axe of Late Bronze Age date. The blade end and part of the socket survive intact, the remainder of the object now missing due to old breaks. The axe is relatively small in size, triangular in profile and with a crescentic blade that expands slightly beyond the sides of the axe. It has the remains of an oval shaped socket that is positioned slightly closer to one face of the axe than the other, giving the axe one thinner side. The remains of casting seams are visible down both sides of the object. All the exterior surfaces show signs of post-depositional wear, ar…

A worn and incomplete cast copper-alloy flanged axe of Early Bronze Age date. It is missing most of the cutting edge of the blade, and the centre of one of the flanges due to old breaks, all surfaces demonstrate signs of extensive copper-alloy corrosion and post-depositional damage. The blade end is crescentic in form, flaring to either side of the axe, the cutting edge mostly missing due to old breaks. It has a flat, rectangular body that gradually tapers towards the butt end and lacks a stop ridge. On each side are developed flanges that are oval shaped in profile and extend to the …

An incomplete cast copper-alloy axe or palstave of Bronze Age date. Only the blade end survives, the remainder of the object now missing due to old breaks. It is triangular in profile with a crescentic blade that has some damage to the centre of the cutting edge. The blade projects slightly beyoned the sides of the axe, and both faces of the axe itself are flattened. There is no evidence for a socket in the surviving breaks and the size and flatness of the object suggest it could be either a socketed axe or a palstave. It measures 28.69mm in length, 46.01mm in width, 8.58mm in thickne…

A copper alloy Late Bronze Age socketed axe blade tip. It is incomplete due to old breaks and is worn. The edge of the blade is curved and worn, and the axe head expands in thickness from c.3mm at the blade edge to 10.45mm at its incomplete edge.  The side of the axe near the incomplete edge has been struck in antiquity, which suggests that it may have been broken up deliberately and could be a fragment from a founder's hoard. The broken edge has a narrow rectangular section with a similarly-shaped socket. The upper and lower edges are flat.   The fragment measures 41.16mm in…

A cast copper alloy small axe or chisel of Early Bronze Age date, complete with the exception of some loss of the blade end due to corrosion. It is of narrow butted form with slight low flanges to either side. The relatively straight sided body broadens to a splayed blade and has a long, lenticular profile but no trace of a central stop ridge or bevel. The surfaces are all severely affected by invasive corrosion with marked pitting and losses to the convex cutting edge and gently arched butt end. A medium brown patina is visible on many of the surfaces invaded by the dark green corrosi…
