A large cast copper-alloy foot fragment from a cooking vessel of later medieval to post-medieval date, possibly a cauldron given its size. The object is trapezoidal in form and narrows from a width of 47.5mm at the point it has broken to 30.15mm at its terminal. It also thins, from 22.8mm thick at the point it has broken to c. 8.0mm at its terminal. A central rib runs up the front of the foot, this also thins with the foot. The break reveals that the leg had a trapezoidal cross-section with a triangular protrusion for the rib; the front is wider. This form of foot is comparable to the…
