Two amorphic piece of copper alloy slag. Found in an area with Bronze Age and Roman artefacts. The surface is characterised by lumps and hollows and has a tin element is indicated relating to bronze working. The slag has a good deep green patina, similar to that seen on some local Bronze Age metalwork, so it may date from this period. If this lump of slag is indeed Bronze Age, it is interesting that it has survived and was not re-melted. Fragments of casting waste like this one are hard to date.

County: Oxfordshire

A large, roughly rectangular lump of bronze slag, airholes throughout and some elements of the raw copper sulphide are visible (a green-blue colour). The slag has a good deep green patina, similar to that seen on some local Bronze Age metalwork, so it may date from this period. If this lump of slag is indeed Bronze Age, it is interesting that it has survived and was not re-melted, as it is quite an amount of bronze.

Cast-off from metal production, possibly copper. The film covering moltern metal within a crucible was often scrapped off and discarded (hence cast-off). This artefact weighs 2.5 gms and although it cannot be closely dated without contextual information, it may date to the Prehistoric periods as it was found in the vacinity of numerous lithic implements. Bronze Age - Medieval 2100 BC -1500 AD.

A collection of 11 assorted broken copper-alloy items and slag. Six of the items appear to be slag from a copper-alloy smelting process. The further five items seem to relate to a copper-alloy vessel of some type, although they do not all appear to have come from a single vessel.
