Large fragment of medieval pot or ewer leg of the main type (straight and ridged). It is made of cast cu-alloy and slightly curved to accommodate the curvature of the vessel.

These vessel fragments are quite difficult to date since this type of metal pot has been in use throughout the medieval and post-medieval period.
