Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a cast copper-alloy cauldron rim. Trapezoidal in plan, 50 mm long, 29.5 mm in width, 4.5 mm thick and 34 g in weight. All edges of the fragment are broken but there an abrupt change of angle of around 45 degrees across it indicating that it is from the junction of the body with the out-turned rim of the vessel. The curve of the fragment suggests a large vessel with a diameter of around 300 mm, with a possible capacity of 3 gallons. Cauldrons with sharply out-turned rims were widespread and common in the 17th century. Butler and Green (2003) illustrate many cauldrons from t…
