A moderate amount of metal was found in CB56. The majority of this, 16 finds (59%) was found in Locus 3, with material present in Loci 2, 4 and 5 additionally. Contexts 3, 4 and 5 are secure and the material from them is probably ancient in the case of Locus 3 and definitely ancient in the cases of Loci 4 and 5. 3 finds were catalogued- a bronze coin from Locus 2, PC20120044 , a bent iron fragment from Locus 2, PC20120084 , and a worked bronze fragment from Locus 3, PC 20120131 .

The slag weights were done after the preliminary metal summary was completed. During conservation two slag pieces from Locus 3 and one from Locus 5 were found to be rocks instead of slag, so seven pieces for Locus 3 and three for Locus 5 make the total slag count for CB56 10 pieces. The new total metal count is 24 finds.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
