A copper alloy casting sprue/jet of Bronze Age or later date. The jet is oval in plan, broadly triangular in cross section and tapers towards the break forming a broadly oval cone. The shape reflects the funnel shaped casting gate and the projecting feeder into the casting mould. The base of the cone would have in fact been the upper side into which the metal was poured and the irregular surface may the metal cooling as it was poured into the mould. The metal has a dark green patina. The casting jet is 39.35mm in length. 23.45mm wide (max), 6.75mm wide (min), 20.0mm in height an…

Corroded cast copper alloy casting sprue/jet of Bronze Age or later date. A truncated cone shaped body with two curved prongs projecting from the narrow end. The shape reflects the funnel shaped casting gate and two projecting feeders into the casting mould. The base of the cone would have in fact been the upper side into which the metal was poured and the odd protrusion on one side may reflect the metal cooling as it was poured into the mould. The metal is dark green with patches of mid yellow green and pale green corrosion. Comparable examples on the PAS database include IO…

A probable Late Bronze Age (1100 BC - 800 BC) fragment of casting sprue, weighing 6.3g. It is oval in cross-section and measures 15.34x10.95 at the wider end, which has a rough surface. The sprue narrows over 14.97mm to an old break 8.64x3.82mm. The sprue forms in the channels of the mould through which molten metal is poured in the process of casting, and which subsequently hardens and is removed. Although the colour of the metal suggests a Bronze Age date, it could conceivably date later.
