Object type: HOARD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Bradford
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A hoard of two Early Bronze Age flat axes, dating from about 2050 BC - 1700 BC, and found in the same hole. One axe is complete and the other is in two pieces and is decorated. Descriptive catalogue: 1. A copper alloy flat axe which is in two parts; it seems likely that this object has broken while in the ground and the break is not an example of pre-depositional action. The surfaces of the break are covered with comparable patina to the other surfaces of the object and both pieces fit neatly together. The upper portion of the blade has a damaged butt, which is now uneven wit…

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Bradford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy probable spindle whorl possibly dating from the Iron Age, about 400 BC - AD 43. The whorl is sub-spherical with a flattened face top and bottom. This would fit into type B2 in the Coppergate classification system, a type that was mainly used in the Iron Age, but continuing into the 7th century. The central aperture is circular and has a diameter of about 6mm. This makes it more likely that the whorl is Iron Age in date (Walton Rogers, 2007, page 23 - 25). However, whorls are notoriously difficult to date and a later date (up to the AD 1600) cannot be ruled out. The whorl …
