Crucible and fragment

Two crucibles, one of which is broken, from a metalworker's workshop. these would have been used for melting metals ready for casting.   Energy Dispersive X-Ray Flourescence (EDXRF) analysis of the interior of the broken piece showed that it had been used for melting bronze. This was found in an area of precious metalworking debris, probably a workshop, and dates to around 700AD.
