The awl doesn't really look right for being ancient. From what I can see at the moment I reckon more likely a nail with the head missing. :D

what would you say was ancient looking because I found axheads with bronze disease they look ancient and I also found a socketed spearhead what looks like it just came out a shop didnt look ancient but it was didn't have no patina and razor sharp

Going by the last pic, is the fat end hollow?
Good things come to those who wait.

What would you call modern because this modern buckle is crumbling with bronze disease

Any signs of a break at the "top" end? I am wondering if it is a fragment of some sort of BA implement????

The other thing looks like machine stamped brass to me, a technique only invented in the late 18thC. It might be the mesh insert from a potpouri or similar box? :D
