Cantiana - Vol. 69 1955 page 9
Finds. An iron spearhead (Fig.
3, No. 5) found by workmen at the left hand side of the skull. It is
inlaid at the junction of the blade and socket with bands and chevrons of
brass strip, 1/16 in. wide1.
This spearhead was the first find to be made on the site. Its decoration
lay unsuspected for some time beneath a mass of corrosion and only became
apparent after a certain amount of electrolytic cleaning. Subsequent
cleaning was carried out by mechanical means.
angle2. A bronze bodkin
(Fig. 5, No. 3), with ribbed decoration, at the left shoulder. The
upper part of the eye is missing.
