Late medieval - post medieval cast copper alloy pot foot and part of the leg. The leg is triangular in section with a flat back, and rounded corners; it is broken off just above a transverse collar with an old break. The prominent collar is rounded in section. The foot is also D shaped in section. The base of the foot is rounded.

Crudely made cast copper alloy vessels were widely used from c. AD 1200-1700 for serving and cooking. Butler et al (2009:4) suggest there were four main types of leg used. This is a type B which they suggest was already in use by the late 15th century
