Unique ID: WREX-1BF26F

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

Copper alloy (bronze) casting waste of uncertain date; due to the lack of context and the continuation of casting styles this object could be dated from Bronze Age - Roman period (c. 1500 BC - 450 AD). The casting waste is broadly conical in shape.The base of the object is uneven and rough surface.The other sides of the object are basically smooth and taper to a narrow runner. The casting waste is a dark green colour with an even well formed patina that covers all surfaces.

Length: 24.51mm; width: 26.57mm; thickness: 17.67mm; weight: 22g.

Notes:

Casting waste is very hard to date in isolation but the patina and form might suggest a Bronze Age - Roman date.
