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 rim of a probable cooking vessel and is sub-trapezoidal in plan and rectangular in section, swelling slightly to the rim. All the breaks are old and worn and the fragment appears undecorated.

The metal has a mid-green patina and is worn. The fragment is 43.5mm long, 22.5mm wide, 5.2mm thick and weighs 17g.

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.
