An incomplete cast copper-alloy fragment originating from a sword dating to the Ewart Park metalworking phase of the Late Bronze Age, dating c. 1000-800 BC. The fragment consists the tip of the hilt and upper section of the handle, the latter flaring outwards towards its apex and being broadly 'H' shaped in section due to prominent raised marginal ridges which appear on both sides of the object. The lower surviving edge of the object demonstrates a partial circular perforation, which is incomplete due to an irregular truncation which has removed the rest of the handle and blade. Preser…

A complete, copper cored, gold, Bronze Age, penannular ring, 1800-1000BC. The ring is is penannular with a small gap between the terminals, which are flat. The ring is circular in cross section. There is substantial copper alloy corrosion on the interior surface of the ring, suggesting that the ring has a copper alloy core, similar to other examples (SUSS-5EF5C1). These rings are often erroneously referred to as 'ring money' though there is no evidence to suggest that they were used as currency. They are predominantly believed to have been used for personal adornment, such as earri…

At the proximal end a striking platform and (on the ventral face) relatively large bulb of purcussion, with bulbar scar, survive. A number of flake-like removal scars are present on the dorsal face, with one being hinged. At the proximal end of the dorsal face are a series of hinged removals, these break the patination but have started to repatinate, suggesting that they are not recent but are probably post-depositional. There is e…

An incomplete flint barbed and tanged arrowhead. This arrowhead was a tertiary flint object but has since completely recorticated. The only area where recortication is not present is at the tips of the barbs which have broken off. The artefact is bifacially worked, the retouch covering one side and being invasive - almost covering - on the other side. On the invasive side just a narrow (2.0mm) length (18.1mm) does not show retouch, the initial longitudinal working of the flint visible through the surrounding retouch. The retouch on both sides is scaled and low-angle. This projectil…

An eroded and but relatively well preserved cast copper alloy (bronze) early or primary palstave, probably of Group III - shield shaped / trident decoration - of Middle Bronze Age date (1500-1300 BC). The palstave axe fits best with the Acton Park II and Taunton metalworking assemblages (Needham Period 5) - both assemblages fit within Burgess's Metal Working Stage VIII and IX. The palstave is broadly rectangular in plan with relatively straight parallel sides which flare on the lower blade and expand to form a wide crescentic cutting edge / blade. In profile the palstave is lentoi…

Incomplete copper alloy spiral-twisted torc dating to the Taunton and Penard 'Ornament Horizon' metalwork phases of the Middle Bronze Age, circa 1400-1150 BC. The present 73mm diameter annular shape is formed from circular-section bronze rod which has been twisted into a spiral. The ends slightly overlap and both have been broken in antiquity. On one of the broken ends the twist and cross-section begins to taper-off suggesting that the break is close to a missing hooked-end terminal. The other end is an abrupt break across full twist and cross-section. The evidence strongly suggests t…

Fragment of a copper-alloy Bronze Age socketed axe head (c. 1100 - 800 BC). Only the cutting edge remains; the fragment is hollow and has a triangular section. The top corner of the cutting edge appears to be flared. Corrosion of the copper-alloy has resulted in a patchy pale green patina and the edges of the axe head fragment are worn and chipped. Unfortunately not enough remains of the axe head to be able to identity it more precisely or attribute a closer date. The length of the fragment is 40.70mm, its width is 22.16mm and the maximum thickness of the fragment is 12.23mm. The weig…

A complete flint arrowhead, probably Bronze Age in date, 2000-1000 BC. The arrow head is triangular in shape with a short tang along the broad edge. It has been formed from a small strucik flake and worked roughly to shape. The crudeness of the working suggests that the object is not complete and may be a rough out. The point of the arrowhead is quite thick compared to the tang, further suggesting that it is incomplete as no pressure flaking has taken place to thin the piece down.

The axehead's socket is rectangular at the mouth and tapers through the length of the socket. Casting seams are prominent within the socket but are not visible externally. The socket has a rasied lip which slop…

A complete cast copper-alloy Picardy type pin dating to the 'Ornament Horizon' (late Taunton/early Penard metalworking phases) of the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1400-1250 BC. The pin demonstrates a cup-shaped head with a deep recess in its upper edge designed to accomodate an insert (now missing), while the sides of the head towards its lower edge are decorated with two transverse collars and a repeating 'nicked' design at its base. Underneath the head, the circular-sectioned neck of the pin narrows abruptly before swelling prominently and then tapering steadily along its length to a sharp-…

A copper alloy Middle Bronze Age unlooped palstave axehead (c.1500-c.1300 BC). The axe is sub-triangular in plan and sub-rectangular in section, tapering to the blade terminal. The blade is narrow tapering and the axe is narrow and unlooped. The blade is flared and the surface is smooth, bevelled and sharpened. The butt is broken and the patination suggests that it was broken in antiquity. The axe has a well-defined stop-ridge on both sides rising at right angles to the septum. The septum is H-shaped in section and is smooth, unworn and slightly concave. At the end of the septum is…
