Copper alloy ingot fragment. A fragment of a cast ingot with part of one straight moulded side and otherwise formed as if cast in a bowl-shaped hollow with a flat surface. The ingot includes flecks of charcoal, one or two shaped, and the broken edges of the fragment are rough and irregular. It is perhaps to be associated with another substantial fragment of metalworking waste from an episode of casting reported along with it. The hoarding of metal scrap is characteristic of later Bronze Age activity, while casting might be an occasional rural activity up to the centralisation of manuf…

A looped and socketed copper alloy spear head dating from the Middle Bronze Age, about 1550 - 1250 BC. It seems to fit into Davis's Group 2 (2017). It has a triangular blade with ribs on each blade wing, and a prominant midrib, lozenge shaped in cross-section. The socket is circular in cross-section and the socket extends just into the base of the blade midrib. There is a side loop on each side of the socket, positioned very close to the end of the object, away from the blade. The spear head is 124.5mm long, 30.4mm wide and 20.6mm thick. It weighs 103.49gm. The internal diameter of th…

A complete cast copper alloy socketed and side looped spearhead of Middle Bronze Age date (c. 1400-1250 BC). The spearhead has a short but slender kite-shaped blade with only the very tip missing. 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 nearly equidistant between the socket mouth and the balde. The mouth of the socket is ever-so-slightly recessed from the main socket. A small number of spearheads with undrilled loops have recently been recorded from across Oxfordshir…

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. 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. The edge of the break is rough and jagged. Unfortunately not enough remains of the axe head to be able to identity it more precisely or attribute a closer date.

The casting waste is a dark green colour with an even well formed patina that covers all surfaces. Length: 24.51mm; width: 26.57mm; thickness: 17.67mm; weight: 22g.

Grey flint scraper. A thumbnail scraper with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface. Covering angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved edge. A pair of thin flakes was trimmed from the ventral surface, trimming the bulb. Misty patina patches have developed over all struck surfaces, indicating the object has subsequently endured exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 26.1mm, Width: 24.1mm, Thickness: 10.4mm, Weight: 7.24gms

Pale grey-buff flint, scraper. A thumbnail scraper with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a wavy ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved end. Misty white patina on struck surfaces may suggest the object was exposed to a calcareous environment after its deposition; this is removed in small patches by probably recent impacts. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 24.9mm, Width: 18.0mm, Thickness: 6.4mm, Weight: 2.84gms

Dark grey to black flint, plano-convex knife. A thick flake with covering angled scalar retouch across its dorsal side and with a flat ventral surface. The finder notes the form of the object resembles an arrowhead, though it is too thick and massy to have served as such. This form may arise from battering in antiquity at one side of one end, and the more recent loss of an adjacent chip. The dorsal surface bears a flecking of white patina, and the ventral surface bears a denser spread of similar markings. This tends to suggest that the object has endured exposure to a calcareous envir…

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.

Red-brown flint lithic implement. A thick flake with a sub-triangular point at one end. The dorsal side bears the rippled scar from the removal of a large flake by hard hammer strike; the ventral surface is flat. Short angled retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the longest curving edge. This is limited by one of the slightly concave sides of a worn point, suggesting use of that part of the object as a borer. The opposite edge to the point bears possibly angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect, though some or all of these shallow scars may be the result of fo…

A probable Late Bronze Age hoard of 90 ingot fragments. Description:All ingot fragments have some soil attached which may affect their final weight. A green patina is present on most fragments due to the copper alloy corrosion (Nos. 1-81 and 86-90). The other fragments (Nos. 82-85) do not have a green patina, probably due to the presence of a higher tin percentage. A bevelled edge can be seen on some fragments while others have a softer, round edge.

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.

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.
