Object type: METAL WORKING DEBRIS
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lump or 'cake' of copper alloy metal working debris. The lump has a flat base, mishapen sides and a rounded top with a sub-circular depression roughly in the centre.

Width: 36.22, Thickness: 25.8 Weight: 107g
