Prehistoric or Roman? copper alloy casting sprue, 17mm long, 16mm wide and weighing 4.71g. The object has a flat urregular circular terminal 17mmx14mm which has a rough upper surface. Below this is a rectangular shaped and sub rectangular cross sectioned projection which tapers in width at its base, terminating in a point. The object is similar in form to LEIC-E3FCA7 and LVPL-F0EBE9 and WILT-EE8A7B, all undated, but it bears a resemblance to both Bronze age and Roman examples recorded here.

A copper alloy casting jet of Late Bronze Age date (1000-800 BC). The object is composed of two conical sprues or flashes with an ovate in plan, the projections are triangular in profile. Casting jets are waste products which form at the top of a two-piece clay mould when the molten metal has filled the object-shaped void below and around the gate piece which had two conical apertures. As they represent re-usable metal, they were often retained and regularly turn up in base metal hoards of the period; see, for example, Treasure case 2006 T36, from Devon. Length: 36.56mm, Width: 44.19…

Copper alloy object, in the form of a solid irregular cylinder which is c.22mm in diameter and up to 24mm high, with a sideways-projecting triangular spur c5mm long at one end. It has a light green patina, and weighs 51.6 grams. This is probably a casting jet from metal working, although it could possibly be part of the handle or leg from a vessel, although the lack of any sooting would argue that the former is more likely. Similar items on the database include NMS-BDCC81, ESS-3A0E64, LIN-97C2B1 There are PAS records for a Bronze age flat axehead (PUBLIC-D25B73) and a couple of piec…

A copper-alloy casting jet with the remains of a runner below probably dating to the Bronze-Age. Description: The jet is derived from casting in bronze. It is sub-oval in plan, unevenly concave on its upper surface and convex on its underside representing the depression in the clay or other mould material which was filled with molten metal. Projecting from the convex underside is the remaining short stub of an irregularly-shaped runner. There is possibly the remains of another runner, represented now by just a slight oval bump on the underside next to the existing runner. The jet has…

An undated copper alloy object, a fragment of casting debris (a casting jet) from metal working. The object is cone-shaped with a deep well in the centre and a thick stubby runner beneath, which would have flowed into the mould. The runner has several incised lines around it that may be tooling marks from when the jet was detatched from the mould, or may indeed be evidence of the tool working on the mould itself. The casting jet has a light green patina with much blackened material across and around it. Although it is not possible to identify the period with certainty, the pat…
