VM_365 Day 197 Fragments of Late Bronze Age Sword from Manston

VM 197

Today’s  image for Day 197 of the VM_365 project shows two fragments from a sword blade found as part of a Late Bronze Age Bronze Hoard at Manston in 1994.

These two joining fragments of a leaf-shaped sword blade were found along with the narrow -bladed palstave axe and pegged spearhead shown in previous VM_365 posts. Traces of the ground edge of the sword  can just be seen on both fragments.
