A possible copper-alloy metal working debris fragment of uncertain date from the Bronze Age to the Post- Medieval period. It is sub-oval in plan with irregular sides. The back is partially flat while the front face is irregularly concave. The shape and surface suggest the way the fragment was formed, probably through dripping and drying of the melted metal.

Dated to 2500 BC to AD 1800.
