More than 40 examples of small earthenware crucibles such as this have been recovered from late Saxon and Norman deposits in various tenements at the centre of Exeter. They range in date from the 10th century to c. 1200. They show that metalworking must have been a significant activity in the early medieval city. The source of the crucibles themselves is an unresolved problem: they are quite different from all other local pottery. More information on Anglo-Saxon Exeter: http://www.rammtimetrail.org.uk
