Топор пальстав, бронзовый век, Суффолк, Великобритания
A large, but incomplete copper-alloy socketed axe of Late Bronze Age date. The blade end of the axe is preserved and part of the socket is visible on the inner surface of the surviving fragment, but the remainder of the object is missing due to old breaks. It is triangular in section with a curved blade end that possibly projects slightly beyond the sides of the axehead. On one face some of the original copper colour of the object is preserved and the surfaces have a brown patina in addition to extensive green encrustation and some corrosion. This fragment is also relatively heavy, which may indicate a high lead content in the alloy. It measures 59.16mm in width, 23.56mm in length, 12.16mm in thickness, and weighs 49.60g. This fragment of socketed axehead is of Late Bronze Age date belonging in the period between c.1200-800 BC.
