Cast copper alloy cauldron foot, plano-convex in plan and section, and L-shaped in profile. There is one central rib running vertically down the centre of the foot, from the broken upper edge to the top of the foot, where it starts to angle downwards towards the base. The foot is flat and undecorated and the base is flat with some burnt black accretions. The 'toe' of the foot is not in the usual curved claw form but instead has a straight rectangular chamfer from the upper edge to the base, at about a 45 degree angle. The back of the base is curved and has a slight ridge or heel. The b…

Incomplete cast copper alloy single-loop buckle frame with concave sides and narrowed, recessed strap bar. The rounded outer edge has a single-lobed knop, which is hollow at the back. The back of the frame is internally bevelled. Small patches of wear at the centre of the pin bar and on the knop indicate where the pin, now missing, was attached and rested. The frame is 27.4 mm long, 24.5 mm wide and 3.4 mm thick. There is a corroded gunmetal grey layer on the upper surface of the frame, which suggests that the buckle was tinned. Whitehead (1996) illustrates a similar buckle on page 28…

Fragment of a cast copper alloy ingot which would have originally been circular in plan and plano-convex in profile, but this fragment is trapezoidal in plan, triangular in profile, and rhomboidal in section, as it comes from one edge of the original ingot. Plano-convex ingots like this one were used during the Late Bronze Age, c.1150-700 BC.
