Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Milton Keynes
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy possible awl of uncertain date, possibly dating to the Bronze Age - Medieval period, 2000BC - AD.1100. The object is a single cast chisel with a flat bladed terminal that widens towards the middle of the piece before tapering down to a point which is now worn. There is no decoration on the object and it has an dark red brown patina. Small chisels and tools of this type were used for an extensive period of time, not simply in the bronze age, but also in later periods for jewellery making and fine work. As such dating the object is difficult. The awl measures 5…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Four Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age flint scrapers, probably dating to c. 3,300-1,600BC. 1. A thumbnail scraper worked from a reused primary or secondary flake of grey-brown flint; cortex covers those areas of the dorsal face which do not exhibit retouch, c. 60%. The flake has no clear point or bulb of percussion, with one facet of the dorsal face at the proximal end and the ventral face much more heavily patinated, suggesting the reuse of an older tool. The dorsal face exhibits long, scalar retouch, abrupt along the left edge, becoming semi-abrupt at the distal end and right edg…

Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A very worn and incomplete cast copper alloy (bronze) flat axe of Early Bronze Age date (c. 2200 - 2000 BC). The flat axe is broadly sub triangular in plan with a splayed crescent shaped blade. In profile it is broadly lentoid, with slightly tapering edges. In cross section the axe is rectangular. One long edge is curved and the opposite is relatively flat. The tips of the crescent shaped blade have been damaged through either abrasion or wear, as has the blade edge itself. A distinct blade facet is not present; it has been lost through abrasion. There is no evidence of any form of …

County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two pieces of copper metal working debris. Both are small irregularly shaped fragments of solidified copper slag. All surfaces are uneven with vesicles and small black flecks of charcoal & some shiny gold & silver coloured flecks incorporated. Both fragments are corroded with patches of green verdigris, and red corrosion is generally present. The maximum dimensions of the individual fragments are 37.4 by 19.7 by 10.1mm and 30.5 by 22.3 by 10.8mm, and together they weigh 23.0 grams The smelting of copper in rural locations is likely to be indicative of Bronze Age activity (an…

A copper alloy armlet or bracelet probably dating from the Later Bronze Age, about 1000 BC - 800 BC. It is a penannular loop with flared, expanding terminals. These are close together, leaving a gap of only about 4-6mm between them. Each terminal is circular and the ends are concave or hollow. The inner face of one terminal is rough and corroded and has gravel adhering to the concretion. The outer sides of the terminals are straight, flaring from the armlet hoop to the widest point of the terminals at the very end. The hoop is mainly D shaped in cross section and varies in diameter. It…

A fragment of a late Bronze Age copper alloy socketed axe head, probably dating to 1100-800 BC. Description: The fragment survives only as the cutting edge and part of the long rectangular socketed body. The cutting edge survives intact, albeit heavily worn and runs in a very shallow convex curve, the blade tips flare slightly outwards. The surviving cross section of the socket is sub-oval. The remaing body appears to be undecorrated although with such little remaining it is not possible to be sure althoguh part of a casting seam. The axhead is patinated a mid green and the breaks ha…

A fragment of the lower part of a copper alloy socketed looped axe dating from the Late Bronze Age, i.e. c. 1000-800BC. Possibly of plain South Eastern Type. Description: The fragment survives only as the blade end. The sides curve inwards from the curved crescent blade-edge, flaring in section to a rectangle. The break across the body is irregular. The surface of the axe is heavily mottled dark to light green to dark brown in patina and is heavily pitted by corrosion across its entirety.

Cast copper alloy unlooped palstave axe probably dating to the Middle Bronze Age palstave 1450 to 1200BC. The axe shares similarities with the Taunton metalwork assemblage and Hotham related to the palstaves of the Acton Park metalwork assemblage to which it bears some resemblance similar to Needham et al fig 140 (1985) and Read (1995: p.3 fig 9 ). The axe is almost complete with a length of 123mm. The butt is slightly concave and has a width of 20mm.

A fragment of a cast copper-alloy socketed axe of Late Bronze Age date. Only the blade edge survives intact, the remainder now missing due to old breaks. The blade edge narrows to a flat tip, still relatively sharp, and is curved in form with expanded sides that narrow in towards the main section of the axe. In cross section the axe head is rectangular in plan and is hollow, showing the beginnings (or end) of a socket. The fragment has a light blue-green patina but much of this original surface is missing from one side of the blade. This is a fragment of a Late Bronze Age socketed axe,…

Copper alloy razor. A flat blade of elongated spade shape with an integral sub-rectangular tang. The object is probably cast, though thinned by sharpening. The cutting edges are slightly curved, as are or were - two being slightly damaged - the angles at the outer edges of blade and tang. The object is flat in section, though if the blade is held between finger and thumb there is a tactile impression of slight thinning towards the edge. The form closely resembles that of NLM-EF1AB4, which is identified as a Middle Bronze Age razor of Piggott Class 1. Suggested date: Middle Bronze Age, …

Copper alloy object, in the form of a solid irregular cylinder which is c.22mm in diameter and up to 24mm high, with a sideways-projecting triangular spur c5mm long at one end. It has a light green patina, and weighs 51.6 grams. This is probably a casting jet from metal working, although it could possibly be part of the handle or leg from a vessel, although the lack of any sooting would argue that the former is more likely. Similar items on the database include NMS-BDCC81, ESS-3A0E64, LIN-97C2B1 There are PAS records for a Bronze age flat axehead (PUBLIC-D25B73) and a couple of piec…
