Bronze bowl fragment

Post by chip » Wed Sep 19, 2018 8:00 pm

I was out today with central searchers on cultivated fields with my deus in gmp with the 11” coil.
Didn’t find much apart from this bronze bowl fragment (it appears to be outer edge with a thicker lip), a couple of musket balls and a strange lead weight.

Any ideas of age would be appreciated.

These pop up quite often having been smashed into fragments over the centuries.

It's much the same with bronze skillet cooking pots.

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.
