Fragment of a cast copper alloy cauldron rim with a worn internally beaded rim that is slightly wider but almost flush with the upper edge of the vessel. The rim itself is 3.3mm thick which then tapers slightly to the body which is 3 mm thick. The fragment is straight in profile to suggest a deep straight-sided everted rim, as seen on cauldrons, and the slight curvature of the rim suggests a large diameter of about 360 mm with a potential capacity of at least six gallons. The surfaces of the exterior and interior have areas of black burnt organic material, which happened when the cauld…
