Two pieces of Bronze Age metalwork have recently ben acquired by Torquay Museum: an Early Bronze Age axe and a Middle Bronze Age rapier. Both were found in the Broadsands area, Paignton. The form, function and a rol.e of the objects are analysed, and the landscape context in which they were deposited is considered. The axe is shown to be of a type previously unknown from the South West and is of a potentially exotic nature, whilst the rapier contributes to a growing number now known from Devon.
