A copper (possibly with large amount of lead) alloy leg and attached base, probably from a cooking vessel or plate of some kind and of a post-medieval date. The leg is roughly pyramidal in shape, in a width to height proportion of approximately 2:1. It is unornamented and terminates in a simple rounded point. The attached area of base curves slightly but beyond a rough estimation of an approximate 20 cm diameter no more can be ascertained as to the purpose of the vessel.

County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead-alloy pilgrim's ampulla. The body is rounded and has no visible decorationon either side. Both handles are missing and the top has been broken off. What remains of the neck had been heavily damaged, pinched shut and folded in some places.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy pot leg resembling Butler, Green and Payne type 4a, probably from a cooking vessel of medieval or early post-medieval dat (1250-1600). The leg is rougly trilobed, the central raised strip projecting 1mm above the main shaft. There may have been a more defined foot but corrosion has reduced the relief elements significantly. When placed flat on its foot, the leg projects at a roughly 60 degree angle. The main shaft is heavily encrusted with verdigris and other various corrosion products, the variability of which possibly indicating a large amount of lead in the material.

A complete cast copper alloy leg, possibly from medieval or post-medieval cooking pot or cauldron. The leg has two moulded furrows running vertically down the front face. The reverse of the object is flat, and where the object may have joined on to the main vessel there is a third face which is concave to fit the face of the vessel.
