Broad period: BRONZE AGE
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible Bronze Age copper alloy developed flat axe, possibly from the Bandon type (Schmidt and Burgess, 1981, 65-7) and dating 1900 - 1700BC. The axe has a broad head, tapering to a narrown butt. The axe is very worn so some features may no longer be visible. There are possibly traces of a flange along the wings of the axe. The axe has a mid-light green pattination. Dimensions: length: 91.82 mm; width: 43.42 mm; thickness: 10.18 mm; weight: 136.08g.

The blade of a cast copper alloy socketed axe of Late Bronze Age date. The base of the socket survives and the broken walls show that the casting was off centre. There are faint scratch marks on one side of the blade which is otherwise in good condition..

A fragment of a cast copper-alloy axe of Bronze Age date. Only part of the blade edge survives intact, the remainder now missing due to old breaks. The blade edge is flat, having narrowed from further up the axe head, and is convex in form. In cross section the fragment is solid and would have had an elongated lozenge-shape in plan. The fragment has a dark grey-green patina. 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 however it is likely to be of Middl…

I am very grateful to John Llywelyn Williams for the following description: The axe has a mottled green and brownish yellow corroded surface and is most likely made of bronze. Its most notable feature is its small size - with a length from butt to cutting edge of 73.4mm. The axe is well made with a thin rounded butt and the body expanding to form a slightly asymmetric cutting edge with rounded terminations. The sides are rounded and there may be traces of very subdued side flanges - the abraded surfaces making it most difficult to confirm their presence. There is no stop bevel but …

Bronze Age bronze butt fragment from an axe of uncertain type but of Developed Axe or Palstave form The axe is fragmentary, broken at both ends but is likely to have been close to the butt (with a surviving length of 21.4mm and a weight of 17.1g). The butt end has some damage (with a width of 21mm and a thickness of 4.4mm). The sides are slightly divergent to the break (with a maximum width of 24.6mm and a thickness of 6.7mm - 7.3mm). There is the suggestion of a casting seam on one side, although little of the original surface survives. The flanges are beginning to develop above t…

A copper-alloy fragment of a Bronze Age axe. The upper side represents the point of the break and has a slight inward curvature. The two flat surfaces of the blade converge towards the bottom, where there is a largely bluntened cutting edge. The right-hand side of the piece is slightly concave, whereas the left is convex, with a spur at the top corner. Both the upper and lower surfaces of the piece display vertical slash marks. It is unclear as to what type of axehead this piece represents, although the fact that it is solid throughout suggests is may be part of a palstave.

A fragment from a possible axe or palstave of Bronze Age date. Only part of the blade end survives, the remainder of the object is missing due to old breaks, now worn. The worn and corroded cutting edge is crescentic in form, extending beyond the remaining side of the axe. It is triangular in profile and has a blade bevel. What remains of the body of the axe is rectangular in form and section with no evidence for flanges. All surfaces have the remains of a dark brown patina. This axe measures 49.77mm in length, 19.46mm in width, 6.66mm in thickness, 23.55g in weight.

An incomplete cast copper-alloy axe of Bronze Age date. A fragment from the corner of the blade end survives, the remainder now missing due to old breaks. The fragment is rectangular in form, triangular in section and preserves part of one sisde of the axe and a short length of the crescentic(?) cutting edge, terminating in old breaks in all other directions. It has a dark brown patina with some pitting and copper-alloy corrosion in places. There is no surviving evidence for a socket. The fragment measures 26.42mm in length, 22.02mm in width, 7.54mm in thickness and 14.39g in weight. …

A fragment of a cast copper alloy axe or palstave of the Bronze Age. The fragment consists of the curved tip of the blade, to a depth of only 15.52mm. The blade expands evenly either side from the cutting edge; the outer tips or edges of the balde are damaged, and internally the blade is solid at this point. The curve of the blade suggests this is a palstave rather than an axe, but it may be a later Bronze Age socket axe head. Because of the fragmentary nature of the artefact it is not possible to identify it further.

Bronze Age (-1,000 to -801) axe fragment: The remaining portion of the copper alloy axe is the blade which has a broken edge traversing the body of the axe. The blade cutting edge is almost symmetrical and is rounded and blunt. In plan the blade tips/sides flare outwards markedly. In section, from the break to the blade the section is an elongated triangle. The break, which is a short rectangle in plan, is not recent as the patina on the break matches that on the surface of the axe. The surface of the axe has patches of a well developed dark brown patina. It weighs 62.3g. From the cut…
