Cast copper alloy cauldron or skillet leg of Medieval date, probably dating from 13th - 16th century. The front of the leg has a prominent central rib and the rear of the leg has two chamfered edges. The fragment widens to an expanded foot. The leg has broken before the body of the vessel. The leg exhibits heavy carbon deposits as a result of repeated burning, as would be expected on the surface of a cooking vessel.

Cast copper alloy cauldron or skillet leg of Medieval date, probably dating from 13th - 16th century. 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.

Near complete copper alloy escutcheon from a hanging bowl or bucket, probably of Late Iron Age date, C. 50 BC to 100 AD. The escutcheon body is of globular form with an integral large incomplete loop, presumably to secure a handle. The body of the mount appears slightly domed, and is decorated with a motif consisting of two high raised moulded opposed semicircular arcs, with a slight break in-between the two. Beneath the raised motif is a circular attachment hole, placed off centre and surrounded with iron corrosion. It is possible to suggest this means of attachment is a secondary rep…

Curved cast bronze fragment, possibly a strap handle from a later prehistoric cauldron or metal vessel. The strap fragment has a little of the attachment plate surviving before two wide and rounded ribs. The strap is curved and would have secured the circular ring handle. Similar fittings can be found on the Llyn Fawr cauldrons and other sheet metal vessels from the Later Prehistoric period.

Fragment of a cast lead alloy (pewter) pot leg from a vessel such as a skillet, ewer or cauldron. The lower part of the leg and a central ridge survive. Pot legs of this type were used during the medieval and post-medieval periods; however, a close parallel, albeit cast in copper alloy, is provided by pot legs recovered from early sixteenth century deposits in Norwich (Margeson 1993, 93, no.565, fig.58). Length (minimum) 33mm, width 22mm, weight 23.0 grams.

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.
