An early-mid Bronze Age flat axehead. The axe was found as a single find. The axe is cast in copper alloy; the original surface survives in a good condition and is only slightly pitted. The axe has a thin and rounded butt, measuring 20.8mm wide and the terminal measures only 2.3mm thick. The butt measures approximately 48.1mm in length, it is very flat in comparison to other examples. There is a slightly raised area in the centre of the axe, which appears to be an early form on the central block, seen on the later palstaves. The thickness of this central area measures 12.7mm. The …

A badly worn, damaged and corroded early Bronze Age flat axehead. The axe was found as a single find. The axe is cast in copper alloy, but the original surface no longer survives and is heavily pitted. The butt end of the axe has broken off, resulting in an irregular break. The broken central block measures 12.1mm x 38.1mm. The sides of the axe are rounded and it is not possible to see the flanged crest. The main body of the axe tapers into the blade proper. The lower blade is asymetical and badly damaged. The blade tips are also damaged and well worn.  There is no decoration visib…

A heavily corroded and fragmentary artefact which could be a small copper-alloy flat axehead in an early Bronze Age style. The axe is possibly a chisel axe used for fine carpentry work, but is could also be votive. The axe remains at a constant width towards the blade edge, the other end appears to have broken off but the breaks are very worn. The edges of the blade are straight. In profile the axe has a thin butt, which thickens slightly towards the main body and then thins again at the blade. The metal is mottled mid greenish-brown in colour and is heavily pitted. There are no signs …

A cast copper alloy socketted axe. The axe is complete and in good condition, although there is a crack across one side near the cutting edge. The surface has a light verdigris patina, with a slightly corroded surface. The body only splays out close to the cutting edge, which is quite curved; the edge has a wide angle when seen from the side, but is still fairly sharp. The axe is quite short from socket to edge, which suggests that this axe was at or near the end of its useful life. The socket is circular, apparently with thin walls, and there are two reinforcing bands around the outsi…

A cast copper alloy socketted axe. This axe is in very good condition, apparently still with its original colour. The axe splays evenly towards the cutting edge, which is curved and only slightly blunt. There is a solid loop on one side. There seem to be some decorative lengthways lines near the socket, and the moulding lines are clear. The socket is nearly circular and has one reinforcing band. The socket appears to have an irregular internal shape (although this could just be dirt). This axe is almost too well-preserved, and one might be wary of a hoax but for the expense of purchasi…

The tip of a cast copper alloy socketted axe. Only a fragment remains; although this is the tip of the axe, it is still hollow. The fragment is also apparently very worn and blunt. This would suggest that the axe had reached the end of its useful life and had been broken into pieces to be melted down. This artefact dates to the Late Bronze Age.

A small copper-alloy flat axehead in an early Bronze Age style. The axe is possibly a chisel axe used for fine carpentry work, but is could also be votive. The axe tapers outwards to the blade edge and has a rounded butt end. Both surfaces are slightly curved with straight edges. In profile the axe has a thin butt, which thickens slightly towards the main body and then thins again at the blade. The metal is mottled mid greyish-green in colour and heavily pitted. There are no signs of re-working.

A fragment of a late Bronze Age, socketed axe dating from 1150 – 800 BC. The axe was found as a single find. The axe fragment survives in a poor condition and much of the well-finished original surface has been lost. The mouth of the socket is experiencing some active corrosion; bronze disease is affecting the metal and is producing a light green powder. There are also some areas of heavy wear on the faces of the axe. The axe has a large mouth-moulding, with a secondary smaller mouth-moulding below. The loop has been removed with the break.

A late Bronze Age, socketed axe dating from 1150 – 800 BC. The axe was found as a single find. The axe survives in a very good condition and much of the well-finished original surface still survives. The mouth of the socket is experiencing some active corrosion; bronze disease is affecting the metal and is producing a light green powder. There are also some areas of heavy wear on the faces of the axe. The majority of the axe is still covered with the original surface, which has a dark greenish-brown shiny patina. The axe has a single, large mouth-moulding. The loop extends from b…

A cast copper alloy socketed axe fragment, found as a single find. The fragment consists of the blade and part of the faces of the axe; therefore the body and mouth do not survive. The surface of the metal is worn and corroded; therefore no casting flashes are visible. The blade expands at the cutting edge, but the socket does not extend into the blade tips. The fragment measures 51.2mm blade tip to blade tip. The socket measures 32mm across. The cutting edge is corroded; therefore the original surface has been lost. The outer surfaces have a mid brownish-green patina. The object is no…
