Out a couple of days ago and this popped up. It’s a copper alloy partifact of some sort - I assume it’s bronze.
Context - field hasn’t given much up - mostly modern post 1700s, but there has now been a few lumps of this kind of copper alloy turning up. It looks distorted, possibly a partly melted pulley?
What do you think - show the FLO or put it into the recycling pot?

No idea either! I hate bits of bronze or copper lumps. They are old and need to be something in my eyes but invariably aren’t anything identifiable which is infuriating.

I’d show it to the FLO just in case but I expect it’ll sadly end up in the scrap box :(
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
