There were several metal finds in CB 54. Most of the metal recovered was bronze (7 of the 9 pieces). There was a single modern piece of bronze recovered in locus 1 the humus layer. Most were amorphous pieces of bronze (4 pieces), however several had discernible shapes: a tack head (20120028), a bronze pin fragment ( 20120039

), and another bronze pin fragment ( 20120045
). The other metal recovered was an iron nail head ( 20120035
) and a large iron fragment ( 20120061
). All the rest of the metal finds came from locus 5 which appears to have been an erosional fill from higher up on the hill. While these finds help demonstrate that metal was in use at Poggio Civitate, they prove little else in terms of metal working in CB 54.
