Two pieces of copper metal working debris. Both are small irregularly shaped fragments of solidified copper slag. All surfaces are uneven with vesicles and small black flecks of charcoal & some shiny gold & silver coloured flecks incorporated. Both fragments are corroded with patches of green verdigris, and red corrosion is generally present. The maximum dimensions of the individual fragments are 37.4 by 19.7 by 10.1mm and 30.5 by 22.3 by 10.8mm, and together they weigh 23.0 grams The smelting of copper in rural locations is likely to be indicative of Bronze Age activity (an…

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. Length: 38.86 mm Width: 27.15 mm Thickness: 13.31 mm Weight: 43.78 g

A small piece of copper alloy metal working debris, of probable Prehistoric date, c. 2100 BC - AD 43. The potential ingot consists of a slightly irregular bar of copper alloy with an oval cross-section, both ends are abraded, but the object appears complete. There are no markings on the surface which has a dark brown patina, where this has been lost it reveals a bright green core. Dimensions: length 56.1mm; width 11.1mm; thickness 8.5mm; weight 24.02g. Whilst similar objects have been identified as Early Medieval based on comparison to Anglo-Scandinavian silver ingots (e.g. LANC…

A fragment of a possible well and jet perhaps of Bronze Age to Roman date. The jet has a circular section of 11mm diameter which expands into an incomplete conical body 21.7mm wide. The identificaiton is not certain: the object appears too symmetrical to be the byproduct of metal casting.

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A medium-sized lump of casting waste of possibly Bronze Age date, c. 1500-800 BC. It is heavily corroded and of highly irregular form. Preserved in relatively poor condition, it measures 38.16mm long down its longest axis, 28.05mm wide, and weighs 39.9g. This piece of waste was found in the same vicinity as SF-3CEE7A, though due to the undiagnostic nature of metalworking debris in general it is uncertain whether they are associated.

A fragment of a cast copper alloy ingot or 'cake' possibly dating from the Bronze Age period (c. 2100-1500 BC). The object is irregular in plan and curved in profile with one smooth concave face and a rough uneven outer convex face. The outer face is rough and pitted. The edges of the object are uneven and rough but with an even patina due to breaks during antiquity. The object has a light green patina and is probably the result of metal working. The colour, texture, shape and formation of the ingot suggests that it may date from the Bronze age period, however without metallurgical…

Copper alloy metal working waste possibly ore dating from the Early Bronze Age, that is c. 2150BC to the medieval period 1500AD. The ore is in an irregular trapezoid and exhibits corrosion products. It is not possible to refine the chronology on appearance alone. The length is 105mm, the width is 90mm thickness 80mm and the weight too heavy for scales.

Fragment of copper alloy found in a burnt mound dating at least to the Early to mid Bronze Age 2150 to 1150BC. The copper is not sheet metal and appears to have been cast as one piece as part of a larger object. It is not yet known what this object was. It should be possible to refine the dating once the charcoal samples are dated from the burnt mound which was the subject of an evaluation associated with treasure case 2016 T518 database number LANCUM-A5AF1B. The length is 48mm, the width is 35mm.
