A cast copper alloy loop probably from a bucket or cauldron of Bronze Age date. It looks too rounded to be a loop from a socketed axehead. Also axeheads with loops were cast in one piece whereas this looks as if it had been soldered on. The loop is D-shaped in section and 6.74mm thick. The object is 23.74mm long and 18.94mm wide and weights 19g. It would have held a handle for the sheet copper alloy vessel. cf Langmaid 1976, 'Bronze Age Metalwork in England and Wales', page 58, no. 24.

Rim fragment of cu-alloy sheet vessel, possibly a bowl. The date is difficult to determine because riveted bronze sheet vessels have been known since the Late Bronze Age and Norfolk is rich in Bronze Age metalwork. However, the vessel could also date from the IA, Roman or Medieval Ages. The rim of the vessel was made from two layers of bronze sheet, held together by rivets, two of which are still in place. The double layer of sheet metal around the rim probably served as enforcement. A parallel for this piece comes from the Late Bronze/Early Iron Age settlement of Potterne, Wilts. (Law…

Fragment of heavy corrugated cast staple handle(?) attachment, probably from bucket or cauldron, found within a hoard. Decorated externally with five heavy ribs/corrugations, plain internally. At the base of these ribs is the remains of a transverse internal socket. The top, broken end of the ribs, is very thin in places. All breaks are ancient. Medium brown/green patina with paler green corrosive encrustations. Appears to be a high lead casting. cf cast staples from cauldron in Llyn Fawr hoard & from bucket(?) in Hatfield Broad Oak hoard (Davies 1929 - BAR67, Fig 8.1)
