Copper alloy vessel fragment. Elongated cast vessel leg, of triangular section with two shallow longitudinal grooves on either side of the two outward faces of the leg.

A darkened zone all around the middle part of the leg might be sooting; if so, it is so light as to suggest only oc…

A fragment of a probable copper alloy pot leg from a Medieval cauldron or cooking pot, probably dating from the Medieval or early post-Medieval period, about AD 1200 - 1600. The fragment consists of the roughly D-shaped (in plan) foot of the leg, and the start of the upward extending leg. The base of the foot is rough and has a pronounced projection. This is probably the result of a casting flaw. The leg is too incmplete to be sure of the shape, but appears to have a convex front and to be C shaped in cross-section. There is a hint of fluting on the top of the foot. The metal is pitted…
