A very worn, copper alloy, socketed axe blade fragment. The orignal surfaces and any detail of the axe have been eroded away leaving a bright green pitted patina. The sides of the axe flare out to a curved bade that appears to have had some nicks on the edge before weathering in the ploughsoil.

Cast copper alloy axe blade fragment, length 36mm, width 9mm, thickness 4mm, weight 4.22g. The forward edge is convex with a low angled curve, the rear edge is broken along its length. This is the forward edge of a Bronze Age axe, the breakage pattern along the rear suggest that this may have originally been the cutting edge of a Late Bronze Age socketed axe. Because the styles of the Early and Middle Bronze Ages, have a flange on either side of the blade, it is highly unlikely that any of these would break in a similar manner as this example. Therefore, a Late Bronze Age date is t…

Early Bronze age copper alloy flat axe, 89mm long and 42mm wide. The axe is in fair condition with a brown/green patina and weighs 95grams. The axe has a narrow and long body which begins 17mm wide and 3mm thick. It tapers gradually and reaches its thickest just under half way along its length where it is 10mm thick and 21mm wide. From this point the axe widens slightly and becomes gradually thinner until it fans out to a blade 42mm wide and 1.5mm thick.

A fragment of a mid-late Bronze Age ?chisel. At the broken end the section is rectangular (22.8 x 10.6mm). The blade edges are missing due to corrosion and much of the surface patination is missing from one face and both sides. The edge expands slightly due to re-working. There are faint curving striations on both faces close to the blade edge from the re-sharpening of the blade. Dark patina, where it is intact. The face with much of the patina intact, it also slightly dented.

Possible blade fragment from a Bronze Age flat axe. The blade has a very worn abraded crescentric cutting edge. The sides are slightly concave. The surfaces of the blade have a brown-red patina. The blade is consistently 1mm thick at all points over the surface, which would make it less likely to be from an axe since one would expect it to thicken toward the middle.
