I found this in the same field as the lead medallion. Approx 12" deep. Bronze pot lid? No idea.

I found something very similar and was told it was part of the lid which belonged to a tankard , the type your thumb pressed down on the little catch to spring the lid up , just a thought and most likely completely wrong .

Doubt it as half the lid weighs 448g and a complete lid would weigh 896g :o

Given the complete item would be at least a Kg, how thick is it ?
Certainly something i have not seen before.
Interesting find, :thumbsup:
