T-75 produced only a few metal finds, with only 12 finds in total, none of which were catalogued. Four of those finds were slag, weighing a total of 117g. However, it should be noted that the bulk of that weight came from a large fragment recovered from the baulk wall, which weighed 92 g. Locus 1 did produce some small flecks of bronze; however, due to the small size and the fact that Locus 1 was topsoil and an old dirt dump, the bronze was not collected. Locus 2 had the greatest amount of metal finds, with 5 pieces recovered. Four of the five finds were iron fragments. Three of these iron fragments were unidentifiable; however, what appears to be an iron bract was recovered from Locus 2 , as noted on page 73. Locus 4 also produced a sizeable chunk of iron; however, since it was topsoil, the iron was not significant enough. Locus 5 also produced two metal finds, one piece of iron and one piece of slag, neither of which were identifiable.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
