Copper alloy metalworking debris. A substantial fragment of solidified copper alloy melt which has congealed in an irregular hollow. The upper surface is uneven and incorporates small [to length 5mm] fragments of charcoal. This is probably to be associated with an ingot fragment reported along with it. The hoarding of metal scrap is characteristic of later Bronze Age activity, while casting might be an occasional rural activity up to the centralisation of manufacturing in post-medieval times. Suggested date: Unknown, Late Bronze Age to Medieval, 1000 BC-AD1500. Length: 122mm, Width: 6…

Copper alloy probable metalworking debris. A massy sub-rectangular cast object with a thickened rounded flange [where the overall thickness is 17mm] with a ragged projecting spur at either end. The main part of the object is of a crisp rectangular section, slightly curved, and broken at either end, though the surface is bubbled overall. It is uncertain whether this should be regarded as deliberately retained scrap metal, or part of a larger object undergoing recycling. Suggested date: Unknown, Bronze Age to Medieval, 1600 BC - AD 1500. Length: 51.1mm, Height: 41.5mm, Thickness (clear …

A fragment of copper alloy metalworking debris of uncertain date. Very irregular in shape with a heavily pitted and corroded surface. Undiagnostic debris such as this can only be assigned a very broad Bronze Age to post-medieval date range. Length: 18.24mm, width: 10.21mm, thickness: 5.33mm, weight: 3.02g

A small piece of copper alloy metal working debris, of probable Prehistoric date, c. 2100 BC - AD 43. The potential ingot consists of a slightly irregular bar of copper alloy with an oval cross-section, both ends are abraded, but the object appears complete. There are no markings on the surface which has a dark brown patina, where this has been lost it reveals a bright green core. Dimensions: length 56.1mm; width 11.1mm; thickness 8.5mm; weight 24.02g. Whilst similar objects have been identified as Early Medieval based on comparison to Anglo-Scandinavian silver ingots (e.g. LANCUM-9C…

A fragment of a possible well and jet perhaps of Bronze Age to Roman date. The jet has a circular section of 11mm diameter which expands into an incomplete conical body 21.7mm wide. The identificaiton is not certain: the object appears too symmetrical to be the byproduct of metal casting.

A fragment of a cast copper alloy ingot or 'cake' possibly dating from the Bronze Age period (c. 2100-1500 BC). The object is irregular in plan and curved in profile with one smooth concave face and a rough uneven outer convex face. The outer face is rough and pitted. The edges of the object are uneven and rough but with an even patina due to breaks during antiquity. The object has a light green patina and is probably the result of metal working. The colour, texture, shape and formation of the ingot suggests that it may date from the Bronze age period, however without metallurgical an…

A probable piece of copper alloy metal working debris, perhaps a casting runner, of uncertain date. The object is conical in shape with an oval base (19.8x17.9mm) narrowing into a projection that is oval in cross-section and terminating in a worn break (which measures 10.2x8.8mm). The object stands 15.2mm in height and weighs 4.62g. All original patina is lost and the metal is now a browny-purple in colour.

Copper alloy metal working waste possibly ore dating from the Early Bronze Age, that is c. 2150BC to the medieval period 1500AD. The ore is in an irregular trapezoid and exhibits corrosion products. It is not possible to refine the chronology on appearance alone. The length is 105mm, the width is 90mm thickness 80mm and the weight too heavy for scales.

Two irregularly shaped pieces of copper alloy casting waste of uncertain date. The first (34.39g) is broadly sub rectangular but with a small extension which may represent a point where molten copper had escaped, the other (27.13g) is flatter but is significantly more irregularly shaped on one face, with several pits and channels probably created by corrosion, trapped within some of these are traces of charcoal. Although undatable, these represent a larger sample also found in the field and may suggest a specialist metal working site.

Fragment of copper alloy found in a burnt mound dating at least to the Early to mid Bronze Age 2150 to 1150BC. The copper is not sheet metal and appears to have been cast as one piece as part of a larger object. It is not yet known what this object was. It should be possible to refine the dating once the charcoal samples are dated from the burnt mound which was the subject of an evaluation associated with treasure case 2016 T518 database number LANCUM-A5AF1B. The length is 48mm, the width is 35mm.
