Object type: TAP
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy tapering cylinder measuring 68.29mm in length. Near the wider end is a goup of three cast and rounded chevrons. Within the chevron group is a small circular countersunk hole. Remains of a white metal coating survive on the surface. The purpose of this object is unclear. It has the appearance of the spigot for a barrel tap but the lack of any grip to prevent the spigot turning in the wood argues against this interpretation.
