Small bronze pot shaped object

Post by Rikm1 » Sun Apr 14, 2019 11:56 pm

Hi, new to this forum :-) just started detecting a few weeks ago. Hoping someone can help. Found this at local park.

About 10" deep, bronze found using garret ace 250 with Nel Hunter coil.

Haven't a clue what it is...


Regards

Richard

Well worth checking. Some prehistoric spears had what are called spear butts which are a bit like door knobs, this isn't one but if in doubt ask the forum.
