Two pieces of copper metal working debris. Both are small irregularly shaped fragments of solidified copper slag. All surfaces are uneven with vesicles and small black flecks of charcoal & some shiny gold & silver coloured flecks incorporated. Both fragments are corroded with patches of green verdigris, and red corrosion is generally present. The maximum dimensions of the individual fragments are 37.4 by 19.7 by 10.1mm and 30.5 by 22.3 by 10.8mm, and together they weigh 23.0 grams The smelting of copper in rural locations is likely to be indicative of Bronze Age activity (an…

Copper alloy metalworking debris. A large fragment of solidified melt which has set on a smooth flat surface. The upper surface of the metal displays low rounded excrescences, and appears smoothed by adventitious wear. This was reported along with other fragments whose upper surfaces exhibited localised crystalline structures and whose lower surfaces were sanded. The different surfaces could point to two discrete episodes of non-ferrous metalworking in the same vicinity. The amount of metal in this fragment suggests the waste from a major episode of casting, and this reporter feels it…

Copper alloy metalworking debris. A fragment of solifdified casting spillage which has set on a flat and probably sanded surface. A part of the material has a pale purple grey tint, the rest is green. Part of an extensive spread of similar objects which point to a discrete episode of metalworking in the vicinity; the clear evidence for sanded surfaces here may suggest a deliberately formed casting bed was in use. Suggested date: Unknown, Later Bronze Age to Post-Medieval, 1000BC-AD1800. Length: 59.3mm, Thickness: 20.7mm, Weight: 77.90gms

A possible copper-alloy metal working debris fragment of uncertain date from the Bronze Age to the Post- Medieval period. It is sub-oval in plan with irregular sides. The back is partially flat while the front face is irregularly concave. The shape and surface suggest the way the fragment was formed, probably through dripping and drying of the melted metal. Dated to 2500 BC to AD 1800. Length: 38.86 mm Width: 27.15 mm Thickness: 13.31 mm Weight: 43.78 g

A possible copper-alloy casting sprue fragment of uncertain date from the Bronze Age to the Post- Medieval period. It is sub-triangular in shape with the longest side that is thicker than the others and it flattens towards the opposite angle. The thickest side has a rough residual slot of the casting process. Almost the entire surface of the piece is covered by a dark grey patina. The period suggested for the casting sprue is from BC 2500 to 1800 AD.

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…

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 (cle…

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. LANC…

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.
