Metal Summary

Total of 15 metal objects was found in T 21, 10 bronze and 5 iron.  With the exception of the bronze hair pin (Find #6, p. 19 ), which was found during baulk trim in an area largely disturbed by root action,all other metal finds were uncovered from the burn layer associated with orientalizing strata.  6 amorphous pieces of bone (Find #2, pg. 45 ; Find # 21, pg. 117 ; Find #1, pg. 93 ; Find # 12, pg. 127 ; Find #5, pg. 163 ; Find #2, pg. 167 ) and 4 fragments of finished bronze objects including hair pin (Find #6, pg. 19 ), elongated bronze object (Find #7, pg. 59 ), fibula fragment (find #9, pg. 95 ), and possible codder pin (Find #6, pg. 163 ) were found.

Iron finds included a rod/nail (Find #5, pg. 65 ), and 4 amorphous slags (Find #14, pg. 109 , Find #20, Pg. 115 , Find #5, pg. 133 , Find #4, pg. 163 ), two of which are of relatively large size and weight and be iron nuggets.

Also 4 crucible fragments were found.  All 4 were uncovered from burn layer of locus 14, which is southernmost area of T 21 excavated this year and most proximal to the South-East Building (the workshop).

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.
