Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A cast copper-alloy foot from a later medieval to early post-medieval cooking vessel. The object is 'clawed', with five moulded claws, the central one being the widest, and a transverse rib above. The object is broken just above this 'ankle', revealing a leg of sub-triangular cross-section with a central moulded rib. The back has a central longitudinal concavity of shallow U-shaped cross-section, and further losses to the sides perhaps attributable to casting flaws. The object has become slightly corroded and pitted post-deposition, and is largely a variable green colour with some patches of off-white corrosion product. This form of foot is comparable to the that published in Butler et al. (2009, 4; ref. 4c) dated to the 17th century.
