A cast copper alloy fragment (tip section) of a socketed spearhead, dating from the mid to late Bronze Age c. 1500 - 800 BC. The socket is roughly sub oval in form and stops at 4 cm from the point. The side blades have been heavily abraded in the ground, loosing much of their shape and cutting edges. Now a dark black/green surface has been 'oiled', disguising the original patina.

A nearly complete cast copper alloy spearhead dating to the Middle Bronze Age (1400 BC - 1125 BC). The spear blade is leaf shaped, with loops incorporated into the base. This is known as a basal-looped spearhead. The blade is now broken into two pieces, roughly half way down with a diagonal break. Most of the outer edge of the blade is abraded, except around the tip where it is complete. The centre of the blade is divided by an expanding (tip to base) lozenge sectioned midrib. This midrib expands into the socket of the spear. Conjoined at the base of the blade are two oval shaped loop…

Early Bronze Age copper alloy flat axehead. It has a slightly irregular shape in plan with an angled butt and a slight flare on the bottom of the blade, whereas the top edge of the blade only broadens out slightly. One face has more of a bevel from the blade edge than the opposite, which is flatter. It is sub-rectangular in profile, coming to a gentle apex at the blade end. Brown in colour and mainly delaminated, it appears undecorated , apart from a slight raised ridge that follows the bottom curve of the blade on the flatter face.

Copper alloy socketed axe head. Cast socketed single looped axe head, lightly flared towards its crescentic curved cutting edge. The plain narrower upper and lower sides each bear a clear central mould line; the other broader sides are flat and plain. At c.50mm in from the cutting edge, narrow grooves of width c.4.5mm appear at the arises where flat sides meet, and these continue until 5mm before the edge of the socket. This appears square with rounded corners externally, framing a rounded aperture measuring 27mm in both directions and with a thickened triangular section border. A sing…

Copper alloy fragment, 34.7mm in length and narrowing from 16.1mm to 11.9mm. The wide end is square and faceted; the remainded of the fragment has an asymetric trapezoidal profile, with a prominant ridge up to 4.6mm thick down one side of the front. The rear is flat and the object demonstrates a slight curve. The flat back and asymetrical profile suggest this to possibly represent a fragment of a Bronze Age tool such as a sickle or knife blade.
