Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A single flake of flint debitage, of probable prehistoric date. A tertiary flake of translucent brown flint with bands of grey-beige inclusions. A relatively large bulb of percussion survives at the proximal end, with bulbar scar. Abrasion to the dorsal edge of the striking platform would suggest the use of platform preparation. The sub-parallel, negative removal scars on the dorsal face appear to have been struck from th same platform as the overall removal. There is a small patch of white patination at the distal point, suggesting possible reuse of older material. There is no retouch…

Three flint scrapers of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, probably dating to c. 3,300-1,600BC. 1. Tertiary flake of mottled pale grey flint, missing the proximal end and bulb of percussion to a natural break, with relatively large, but diffuse conchoidal ripples on the reverse. Abrupt, long, sub-parallel retouch along the distal and left edges of the dorsal face, obscuring the negative removal scars, but which appear to be struck from a different platform to the overall removal. Length 26.7mm; width 29.3mm; thickness 14.5mm; weight 5.90g. 2. Tertiary flake of slightly…

Late Bronze Age copper alloy disc headed pin, Length: 27 mm, diameter: 11 mm, weight: 2.13 grams. The pin is incomplete, missing its lower shaft. This is circular in cross section and widens as it reaches the head from 2mm to 3.5 mm in diameter. The head is 3 mm deep and 11 mm in diameter. It is circular in form and triangular in cross section, emerging from the shaft and widening to form a disc with a concave upper surface which contains a central circular depression. There is no decoration. Pins of this type are hard to date as they are not often discovered within hoards. The artef…

A complete cast copper alloy / bronze ribbed socketed axe of later Bronze Age / Ewart Park date (950-750 BC). The axe is relatively robust with a square shaped mouth and relatively straight sides which expand near the base of the socket to form an asymmetrical crescent shaped cutting edge. The mouth of the axe is broadly sub-rectangular in cross-section; it is poorly finished with four distinct D shaped casting runners / casting jets projecting from the mid-point of each edge. The mouth moulding / collar around the mouth is swollen with a prominent bulbous or biconocal external ridge. …

A fragment of a late Bronze age copper alloy socketed axehead, dating from 1000 - 800 BC. The fragment consists of the tip of the axehead, and is trapezoid in shape. In cross section across the side of the axehead it is triangular in shape, narrowing towards the tip of the blade. Across the body of the axehead it is rectangular in cross section, and hollow up to where the blade starts to narrow. The edge is worn and broken, and has a large crack on one edge where more of the body is missing. Along the blade edge it is worn, and one of the corners is missing. The surface of the axehead …

A fragment of a small cast copper alloy socketed spearhead, probably of the side looped type and dating to the early Middle Bronze Age, c.1600-1400BC. Side-looped spearheads are Class IV and date from the early Middle Bronze Age. They are likely to belong to the Acton Park 2, Taunton (Cemmaes) or Penard metalwork assemblages, corresponding to Needham's (1997) Period 5 (1500-1150 BC). Although the size of this object suggests a votive use this is not the case. Other examples of small spearheads are known including GLO-F69302, LANCUM-B72611, LANCUM-0433B7 and SWYOR-3D024E on this dat…

A fragment of a late Bronze Age socketed axe dating to perhaps c. BC 1000 - 800. It consists of the side loop, a small section of the axe itself and a short section of the collar of the socket. A casting ridge is visible over the collar and along the length of the loop. It is 33.22mm in length (from the top of the collar to the lower end of the loop, at which point the rest of the axe has broken away) and 26.58mm in width (two broken edges either side of the loop).The loop itself is 18.82mm in length, 6.55mm in width, with an oval opening (6.36mm x 4.04mm).

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy lower blade fragment from a palstave dating to the Middle Bronze Age, circa 1500-1300 BC. The shape of the fragment is sub-triangular in plan and triangular in profile; the cross section at the break is sub-rectangular in form. The blade is broken below the stop ridge, due to this it is uncertain whether this fragment is from a looped - or unlooped palstave variant. The sides of the palstave gently taper from the break to the blade where the tips of the blade protrude markedly. The cutting edge is crescentic and relatively well defined, however it is very worn and the …

An incomplete cast copper-alloy fragment originating from a socketed spearhead of Late Bronze Age date, c. 1000-800 BC. The fragment represents a section across the midrib and blade wings (giving an overall lozengiform section) around two thirds of the way up the blade, truncated irregularly at its top and bottom edges as well as missing one side of its midrib in an old break. Preserved in somewhat poor condition, it survives to a maximum length of 17.68mm long, 21.35mm wide, and 8.27mm thick at the midrib. It weighs 5.31g. Due to its fragmentary state, this object cannot be attribute…

In section it is triangular, while in plan the blade is convex and flared. No casting seams on the sides of the axe are visible, though these may be obscured by corrosion. Preserved in fair condition with some encrustations, it survives to a maximum length of 26.91mm, 46.70mm wide between the edges of …

A complete flint, Late Neolithic - Early Bronze Age, tanged arrowhead, 2350-1700BC. The object comprises a pointed oval blade that has been pressure flaked to shape. There are long, scaled, intrusive removals across the surface of the object to shape the piece. The cutting edges are then retouched by short, scaled removals. The piece has an assymetrical lozenge shaped cross section, with one face more triangular than the other. See also NMS-C33616 a Green, S. (1980) Sutton type A.

Bronze Age to Post Medieval (c. 1250 BC to 4th century) awl: The awl has a tang which is rectangular in section and tapers to a blunt edge. The tang is over half of the awl. The other half is square in section, tapering to a blunt, rounded point. The surface has traces of a mottled light grey-green patina. It measures 51.61mm long, 5.98mm wide, 5.52mm thick and weighs 6.2g. Awls can date from the Bronze Age, c. 1250 BC but as the design of awls has changed very little, it could also be much more recent. The patina perhaps suggests a Roman date, but this is not certain.

Miniature axe or axe-chisel of Bronze age to Roman date (2150 BC- 410 AD). The object is similar to solid flat axes with a tapering blade, resembling a miniature version of the earliest and simplest solid cast copper alloy axe-heads. The sides are slightly curved and the blades tappers to a rounded edge. The object is broken along the wider edge. The object has a heavily pitted light green patina. The broad date range has been given due to the form of the object most closely resembling early Bronze age axe heads, however there are numerous examples of Roman votive deposition of such…

A flint thumb-nail scraper of probable Early bronze age date, c. 2400-1600 BC. A tertiary flake of dark brown flint, mottled with grey inlusions. Sub-rectangular in plan, with a relativey pronounced bulb of percussion on the ventral face, but with the striking platform worked away at the proximal end.
