VESSEL

Unique ID: YORYM-EE7C21

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

An incomplete copper alloy vessel of medieval to post-medieval date. The fragment is the leg of a probable cooking vessel such as a cauldron. It is sub-triangular in section though tapers in diameter from a wide top to a worn, rounded base. The upper surface of the leg is slightly concaved where it would join to the vessel proper.

The metal is a mid greenish-black patina and is worn. The object is 55.2mm long, 33.2mm wide, 28.3mm and weighs 132g.

While it is not possible to allocate this fragment to a specific type it is likely to be from a large cooking vessel and dates from c. AD 1100 to c. AD 1850 when the use of cast iron cooking vessels predominates.
