UNKNOWN METAL WORKING DEBRIS

A lump of melted copper alloy of unknown date. It is rough and irregular. One face is a recently made cut which reveals the inside to be copper coloured with some cavities. This object was found on Towton Battlefield, so it has been recorded in case it is a Medieval object from the battle of 1461, but its date is unknown.
