Incomplete medieval to post medieval foot from a cooking vessel such as a cauldron dating to the period c. AD 1300 - 1700. The leg has a worn break at the top, is trapezoidal in cross-section and expands in thickness into the foot. The front is divided by a prominent central mid-rib, with a shallower rib along each long edge. It exhibits heavy sooting.

The vessels to which these were attached were usually of a tripod form and were widely used from circa AD 1200-1700 for serving and cooking. Butler and Green (2003) 15, state 'there is evidence that (cast copper alloy) metal cooking vessels became increasingly common during the 13th and 14th centuries'. While certain specialist cast copper alloy vessels such as skillets remained in use for longer, 'bronze cauldrons in general seem to have been superseded in the early years of the 18th century by cast iron which were cheaper to make and more durable' (ibid; 22).
