Bronze/metal Summary

A fairly large amount of bronze was found throughout the trench. ALmost all of the fragments were very small and usually flat (blade fragments?). The amount of bronze was increasing towards the floor level.

A large semicircular hollow fragment was found in Q67 at depth 0.8m (see HDA I p115 #1) and a stud was found in Q66 at depth 0.9m (HDA I p215 #1). A number of small bronze "balls"/"beads" indicate bronze production in this area.

Lead: A small fragment of lead was found in Q70 at depth 0.6m (HDA I p35 #10).

Slags: A few fragments of slags (iron/bronze) were found in the plaster layer (HDA I p35 #14, HDA I p199 #6, HDA II p 35 #2). HDA I p107 #11.
