Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete and hardly worn cast copper alloy socketed and side looped spearhead dating to the Taunton phase of the Middle Bronze Age date (c. 1400-1250 BC). The spearhead has a short but slender kite-shaped blade with rounded shoulders. The edges are bevelled and the blade is still very sharp. Fine filing or polishing striations can be seen all over both sides of the blade. The socket is circular and tapers from the open mouth in to the shaft between the blade's wings. There are two lozenge-shaped, undrilled 'loops' located equidistantly between the socket mouth and the blade. The mout…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper alloy socketed axehead of late Bronze Age date, c. 1000 - 800BC. The fragment is the blade end of the axehead which is trapezoidal in shape with a worn cutting edge and flared rounded corners. The cross-section is rectangular and the breaks are old and worn. The metal has a dark green patina and is worn. The fragment is 49.9mm long, 35.8mm wide, 15.3mm thick and weighs 55.9g. Due to the incomplete nature of the axehead it is not possible to ascribe it to a particular type series and it has therefore been dated broadly as late Bronze Age in date circa 1000 - 800BC.

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy so-called 'moustache-shaped' object dating from the Middle Bronze Age to Iron Age. This is probably approximately half of a double moustache-shaped fitting. The object is three-dimensional oval in plan and D-shaped in cross section with a hollow back and could also be described as 'slug shaped'. It tapers evenly at both ends to a relatively rounded terminals. One appears complete and the other appears to have a patinated, uneven break at the tip, probably at the site of the connection to the other half of the moustache. The upper surfaces are decorated with cast c…

Object type: AWL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete though worn copper-alloy awl of probable late Bronze Age date, c. 1000 - 800 BC. The object is sub-square in section at the middle and widest point tapering to worn rounded points to either end. The object is undecorated. The metal has a mid-green patina and is worn. The object is 51.6mm long, 6.2mm wide, 6.1mm thick and weighs 5.2g. Plain copper alloy awls are hard to date precisely but examples of this form are thought to have been introduced in the Bronze Age (2150-800 BC) with most being Late Bronze Age in date (1000-800 BC).

A complete copper alloy spear dating to the Middle Bronze Age (c. 1600-1400 BC). The spearhead is broadly sub-triangular in plan and profile with a sub-oval/leaf-shaped blade with a pronounced mid-rib on both faces. The socket is hollow and has cast side loops roughly half way up the socketed end on opposing sides. The spear head has broken across the near centre of the blade. The two pieces were found about 60cm apart. The blade edges are chipped and the mid-rib also shows signs of wear. The object has a smooth dark brown to olive green patina which is pitted in places. This form of …

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey-brown flint with cortex, debitage. A thick flake with a broad flake struck from its dorsal side and with broad parallel flakes struck from its convex ventral surface. Two or three draughts of angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect appear at one end of the object, and the same edge is lightly battered. The form of the flint recalls that of a naturally formed pot lid fracture, though this may have been adapted; improvised or casual use may be represented. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC. Length: 53.1mm, Width: 37.8mm, Thickness: 14.4mm, Weight: 28.87gms

Fragment of a copper-alloy cast blade, possibly from a rapier. The blade point is Bronze Age in date, though not enough of the artefact remains to more precisely date it to within this period. The item is an elongated triangular shape, with a narrowed end. There is a central midrib.

A fragment of a probable Late Bronze Age socketed axehead, probably dating to c. 1100-800 BC. The sub-rectangular fragment comprises of a sction of the mouth and socket wall; the mouth appears to have been flaring, with a moulded collar beneath, but with no other indication of decoration on the surviving fragment. The cross-section of the fragment suggests an original cross-section which was relatively pronouncedly sub-hexagonal.

Fragment of a cast copper alloy flat axehead, comprising part of the blade, trapezoidal in plan, triangular in profile and rectangular in section, at the narrow broken end, dating from the Early Bronze Age c.2200-1850 BC.. The opposite blade end tapers to a rounded and damaged edge in profile which may have expanded outwards to form the cutting edge. The blade is broad and straight sided but as it is worn and incomplete, may have expanded into a more crecentic cutting edge. The surface of the blade is covered with a brown patina and both faces are decorated with straight lines punched …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a cast copper alloy narrow rapier, rectangular in plan and lozenge-shaped in profile and section, with a raised broad mid-rib on both faces. The surface is heavily pitted and corroded on one side so that less of the dark brown patina survives. The cutting edges of the fragment are also jagged and damaged. The fragment dates from the Middle Bronze Age, but to be sure of its date, it will need more metallurgical analysis. Rohl and Needham (1998) illustrate some similar rapiers with broad mid-ribs on p.132, fig.34, nos.189-190, which are Group IV rapiers, and date from the Pe…

The dorsal face is marked by a removal scar, wtih three clear flakes being struck from the proximal end of this face. There is a large bulb of percussion on the ventral face. There are some very small dots of a grey white patina on both …

A Middle Bronze Age late looped palstave axehead of uncertain type but dating to the Wilburton Industry (Needham Period 6, 1150-950 BC). The butt end has some possible worn damage but the axehead is otherwise complete, with a smooth light bluey-green patina (and some areas of concretion). One face and side has extensive patches of a dark grey concretion. The casting flash along the side with the loop is particularly pronounced, especially on the butt-end section. The casting flash to the other side is visible but mostly either worn or smoothed down. The loop measures 11.6mm wide and 21…

A fragment of a late Bronze Age copper alloy socketed axe head, probably dating to 1100-800 BC and deliberately broken as part of ritual deposition. Only the cutting edge and adjacent section with the end of the socket survive. The cutting edge survives intact and runs in a shallow convex curve 39.7mm long, the blade tips flare outwards slightly but both the tips and blade edge are damaged and chipped. There are some possibly hammering marks on one face from sharpening. The surviving part of the body appears to have had flat faces and convex sides, each side being triangular in cross …
