Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Swansea
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of a large iron vessel (cauldron?) consisting of a separately forged leg, plano-convex in section and with a decorative outer longitudinal ridge, and part of the vessel's base. Dimensions of surviving portion of the vessel's base 96mm x 72mm, vessel thickness 6mm, length of leg 45mm, weight 276.4 grams. Although cast iron vessels of this form were used until the early twentieth century the longitudinal ridge on the leg is similar to those decorating late medieval and post-medieval copper alloy vessel legs suggesting it may be of earlier date.

Wall fragment of a cast tin-lead alloy (pewter) vessel. The fragment has been flattened and it is not possible to determine the original form of the vessel. Dimensions 46mm x 48mm x 1mm, weight 16.6 grams. Medieval or post-medieval in date.

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Pot mend of a steeply sided vessel, crudely cast. Unusual metal type - microscopic examination suggests that it is a heavily leaded copper alloy which may have a tinned surface. Most pot mends are made from straight lead alloys and that this example has been made from a leaded copper alloy suggests that it may be a mend for a copper alloy vessel rather than a ceramic pot. Close dating is not possible but a medieval or post-medieval date is most likely. Dimensions 100m x 44mm x 4-8mm.

Cast copper alloy vessel foot. The foot has a rib on its external surface and tapers to a rounded point. The upper part of the casting is missing. Vessel feet are not uncommon detector finds (Bailey 1997, 36). Although examples which terminate in turned-out bases or paws are the most common type, examples with rounded tips are not unknown. Surviving length 79mm, max width (surviving) 35mm, max surviving thickness 16mm. Fifteenth to seventeenth century probably [i.e. Late Medieval - Early Post-Medieval]. Parallels: Lewis 1978, 36, no.45 (skillet); and Lewis 1978, 32, no.38 (Cauldron)

Crudely cast, slightly waisted, copper alloy vessel leg. Length 41mm, width 28-33mm, thickness 18mm, weight 77.4 grams. Identifying the vessel type that this leg is from is not possible. Presumably it was either a cauldron, skillet, jug or ewer. Close dating is equally difficult as the form of the legs like this did not change from the medieval period until the seventeenth century (Read 1995, 95).

Several cast copper alloy vessel fragments including the basal end of two vessel legs form different vessels but both plano-convex in section and with decorative outer longitudinal ribs; cast copper alloy rim fragments from four different wide and steep sided vessels (probably cauldrons); and a cast copper alloy rim fragment from a wide and steep sided vessel which includes an integrally cast suspension loop, the upper part of which contains a pronounced wear facet.

Complete cast copper alloy vessel leg. Part of the apparently integrally cast body of the vessel remains attached to the leg. Length 78mm, width 16-17 mm, weight 115.2 grams. Medieval to post-medieval. The surface of the leg is preferentially blackened in comparison to the inside of the vessel body; this "sooting" is a common phenomena and is due to oxidisation of the outer surface of the vessel through exposure to the cooking fire.

Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a wide and steep sided vessel (probably a cauldron). Surviving vessel depth 37mm, thickness 3.5-4.5mm, weight 42.1 grams. Medieval or post-medieval in date. Medieval cast copper alloy vessels are discussed by Egan (1998, 161-169); several post-medieval examples are noted by Margeson (1993, 90-94).

Cast copper alloy vessel leg, sub-triangular in section, which tapers towards its angled foot. The foot is separated from the main part of the leg by a transverse ridge in the angle. The weight of the vessel leg suggests that the copper alloy was leaded. Possibly the leg of a tripod ewer. Close dating is difficult because the form of the vessel legs remained similar from the late medieval period until the seventeenth century (Read 1995, 95); however, the distinctive transverse ridge in the angle of the foot and leg of this example is closely paralleled by a vessel leg recovered from a …

Cast copper alloy vessel, leg, sub-trapezoidal in section. The outer edge and sides are decorated with longitudinal grooves. The leg tapers towards its rounded base. The weight of the vessel leg suggests that the copper alloy was leaded. Probably the leg of either a cauldron, skillet, jug or ewer. Close dating is not possible because the form of vessel legs remained similar from the late medieval period until the seventeenth century (Read 1995, 95). Length 46.5mm, maximum width 31.5mm, maximum thickness 20mm. Thirteenth to seventeenth century.

Copper alloy cast cauldron or skillet leg fragment, broken at both ends, and probably of late Medieval or Post Medieval date. The leg is of low D-shaped section with a rounded rib on the outside face. The sides converge towards the foot and the leg thickens near the top break. Black deposits over the surface indicate heavy sooting and burning.
