Metals and associated artifacts from oudepost i, cape

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Metal finds from Oudepost I include iron, copper, brass, bronze, pewter, and lead. Catalogs and color images of some figures appear in the enclosed CD. This chapter does not deal with the large iron collection, which has yet to be analyzed and conserved. The metal artifacts used for personal adornment are discussed in Chapter 9. For ease of analysis I have separated the copper, brass, bronze, tin, and pewter from the lead, which is described later in the chapter, together with the molds that were mainly used to produce lead shot.
