Late Bronze Age date (c. 1150-600 BC) pegged spear (spearhead): The copper alloy spearhead is almost complete with the edges of the blade being abraded and the rim of the socket is damaged recently. The blade is a slender leaf-shape and the edges of the blade are slightly bevelled. The midrib tapers towards the tip, which is missing and expands to the socket. The socket is still filled with soil, and is 17.36mm diameter on the interior and 22.03mm diameter on the exterior. The socket is decorated with three bands of triple stranded grooves. On the exterior edges of the outer grooves th…

An incomplete copper-alloy tip from a spear head, of probably Late Middle Bronze Age date (c. 1400 - 1100 BC). It is broadly triangular in plan and broadly lozenge shaped in cross section with a raised central mid-rib on both sides. The fragment has a rounded point at the top, which has sustained some damage. The sides of the spear head taper from the rounded point to a broken end. It has a mid-green surface patina which has been heavily abraded; the spear head has lost most of its diagnostic features and as a result further classification is difficult. It measures 44.16mm in length, …

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragment of a cast copper-alloy Bronze Age axehead, dating to circa 1900-1100 BC. The remains consist of the blade and a small portion of the body of the axehead. There do not appear to be any traces of a socket, indicating that it is probably not a socketed axe from the later Bronze Age. The blade is slightly flared and crescent shaped, perhaps suggesting that the axehead is either a flanged or palstave type of middle Bronze Age date. The axehead has an abraded green/brown coloured patina. There are areas of active corrosion on the object. The axehead measures 44.6 mm long, 29 m…

The blade cutting edge is slightly convex with rounded tips/corners which are slightly flared. The side faces have traces of a casting seam, but it has been rounded. The break edge of the axe is not too recent as there are traces of a patina on the break, but it does not match the patches of a heavy dark brown patina on the faces of the axe. On this break there are also areas of active corrosion. The surface of the a…

An incomplete cast copper alloy spearhead, of probable Mid to Late Bronze Age date (c. 1600 BC to c. 1000 BC). The spearhead fragment consists of a conical point, with a sub circular to sub rectangular cross section. The fragment is partially hollow, with the socket surviving to a depth of 14.2 mm. Longitudinal ridges are present on either edge; these are all that remain of the plough rolled blades. The spearhead tapers to a sharp point. The spearhead fragment is a dark brown with an uneven surface patina. Abrasion, caused by movement within the plough soil, has resulted in the …

An incomplete cast copper alloy Bronze Age side-looped spear dating to the Middle Bronze Age, circa 1500-1100BC. The central / lower midrib, both side loops and some of the socketed mouth of the spear survive. The rest is missing due to old breaks. Originally, the spear would have had a leaf-shaped blade. In plan, the midrib is slightly wider at the base, narrowing gradually to the break. The complete, but now sealed, side loops project to either side. The midrib section is circular and hollow, although soil is now present in the cavity. Soil adheres to the surfaces of the spear, but …

A cast copper-alloy awl which has a slender body which is circular in section from the mid point to a blunt tip. This portion is slightly swollen in width at the centre. The other half ofthe awl is rectagnular in section and tapers in depth to a blunt point. This half is probably the tang, and the opposite terminal is the working element of the tool. The awl is a slightly pitted surface with traces of a mid green/grey coloured surface. It measures 54.86mm long, 6.5mm wide, 6.07mm thick and weighs 7.7g. The awl probably dates to the later Bronze Age period: -1150 to -800.

A fragment of a copper alloy palstave. The portion which remains is the butt of the palstave. The butt is a sub-trapezoid in plan, with one broken edge which is not too recent a break. The section is a rectangle with slight lips at each corner forming an almost 'I' section. In profile the butt is triangular, thereby tapering to a blunt edge at the terminal. On one side face the casting seam is partially visible. The fragment is in fair condition with an incomplete shiny dark brown patina. It measures 21.1mm long, 24.65mm wide and 7.29mm thick. It weighs 12.3g. The fragment is probab…

As such casting jets are associated with the manufacture of many cast objects over a very long period of time they can be difficult to date, but given the shape and patina this example has been given a probable Bronze Age date (2150 …

An early Bronze Age flint barbed and tanged arrowhead. The tip is missing and as the patina at the break differs from the rest of the artefact it seems likely that this has occurred relatively recently, perhaps during ploughing. One of the barbs is also missing, although this seems to have occurred in antiquity - it may have been an accident during manufacture. The tang is very straight and is a 'squared' example. The remaining barb is also relatively straight. The flint is a pale ochre in patina, with a deeper brown in the more recent break. Both faces of the arrowhead have been subj…
