VESSEL

Unique ID: YORYM-FF210D

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

A fragment of a copper alloy vessel of medieval to post-medieval date. The fragment is part of the leg of a probable cooking vessel. The leg is sub-D-shaped in section expanding outward towards the foot. The base of the leg is flat which would have aided in the stability of the over all vessel and the upper edge of the leg terminates in a worn break. There is a swollen spine running along the centre of the front of the leg.

The metal has a mid greenish-brown patina and is worn. The fragment is 38.4mm long, 38.9mm wide, 21.6mm thick and weighs 45.9g.

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.
