Cast copper alloy ewer or laver spout of late Medieval date, probably dating from the 15-16th centuries. The spout is shaped in the form of a duck's head. Many ewer spouts are in the form of dog's heads such as the example recovered from Cardiff Castle (Lewis 1991, 4, fig. 8A), although duck head spouts have been recorded. The duck eyes are defined by an incised circular ring, the bill is open with a protruding short barrel emerging from the animal's mouth. The top of the animal's head is decorated with short incised lines at the centre and above the brows.

The mount depicts a sitting quadruped with its front legs extending out in front of the body, and possibly representing a bear or a dog. The animal is naturalistic in style. The hair is depicted by incised lines over the body, except for the top of the back, where a rectangular panel is decorated with two incised diagonal crosses divided by a single incised line. On the rear of the animal there is an integral flat circular perforated lug covered with iron corrosion, and possibly representing a …

Copper-alloy leg from a medieval or post-medieval cooking vessel, perhaps a cauldron or skillet. This is a short rectangular-sectioned leg with a bevelled base resulting in the bottom of the leg forming a narrow edge. The leg has broken at the junction with the body of the vessel, and rises to become expanded, with a concave upper surface. The patina and corrosion of the fragment suggests burning, as would be expected with a cooking vessel.

Rim fragment of a vessel, probably of Late Medieval date. The fragment is relatively thin and is suggestive of a vessel with a comparatively small rim diameter (originally approximately 70mm), possibly suggesting a fragment from a jug or tankard, similar to a mid 14th century tankard found at Caerphilly Castle (Lewis, 1978). The vessel has an incised or turned decorative band on the exterior, at the position of slight shoulder, two narrower incised lines flank the band.

Cast copper alloy vessel escutcheon or mount in the form of a bird’s head. The escutcheon has a lower flat panel representing the breast of the bird and decorated with incised diagonal lines meeting at a central vertical line, beneath each of the diagonal lines are a row of chevrons to indicate the feathers. At the top of the panel is a circular drilled hole, possibly to hold a handle. The top of the perforation corresponds to the level of a step in the mount, presumably to house the vessel rim. The top of the mount is in the form of a pointed bird’s head with incised oval-shaped e…

Possible fragment from a vessel mount, possibly originating from an organic vessel, the contextual placing of the find may suggest a Roman date for the find. The mount has an expanded rim with a series of transverse ridges over the top. The rim has a slight plain inturn, before a low moulding defining a decorative panel consisting of a moulded vertical line, which meets a pair of moulded diagonal lines at the top. There is no obvious means of attachment. The rear of the piece is plain.

The dog is modelled with apparently closed eyes, small but upright ears and a slight crest on the back of its head. The spout illustrates no evidence of an attachment device, suggesting it was welded or soldered to the vessel. The spout is paralleled by examples from the moat at Cardiff Castle (Lewis 1991, 4, fig 8A)and an unprovenanced example (Bailey 1997, 57-58 no 5).

The other fragment has a more angular internal rim with less sooting evident on the exterior. Short and stumpy straight ridged leg, with central rib and two less pronounced side ribs. The top of the leg has an area of the vessel body attached. The leg has evidence of sooting, with an addition thick carbon deposit on the interior of the body.

The front of the leg has a prominent central rib and two side ribs near the top of the leg, where the leg joins the vessel. The rear of the leg has two chamfered edges. The interior of the vessel is present at the apex of the leg, which shows ancient breaks around its edge. One half of the front of the leg has been recently cleaned by the finder, the remainder of the leg exhibits heavy carbon deposits as a result of repeated burning, as would be expected on the surface of a cooking vessel.

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).

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.
