- Curator's comments
- The socketed axe is the only securely datable object among the group, belonging to the Ewart stage of the Late Bronze Age, circa 1000 – 800 BC. Associated with objects 2005.0606.1 and 2005.0607.1-14. All but one of the remaining copper/alloy objects would be entirely consistent with such a date, and are possible part of a Late Bronze Age hoard.
