Feature Spotlight: The Cholderton Estate Bronze Age Hoard

Another trip to my local museum this time for the next Feature Spotlight: The Cholderton Estate Bronze Hoard.

Two of the axe heads in this hoard were found in the early 20th Century, the rest were discovered in 2007. The board is comprised of both socketed and palstave axe heads.

The axeheads date to the Ewart Park metal work phase (1000 – 800 BC), or the Late Bronze Age. The Palstave may date to a slightly earlier phase, and bee. In circulation longer before during deposited.
