Medieval-Post Medieval copper alloy fragment of a cooking vessel, probably from a cauldron, c.1200-1600. The fragment has black specs on both the obverse and reverse sides which may be a result of sooting or possibly part of the patina. The obverse side of the fragment has very faint lateral lines running across it. This side is also straighter than the reverse side which slopes up towards the rim. The reverse side also has a smooth patina but has a green/white residue on it, which is also present on the obverse. The reverse also has been scratched, one appearing to be a cross shape in the centre. These reveal the shinier metal underneath the surface. The fragment measures 43mm in length and 38mm wide. At the top, the rim measures 4mm which then tapers to 2mm at the bottom of the fragment.The fragment weighs 28.1g.
