Abstract:
The report contains a summary of metalworking processes, and descriptions and illustrations of the various categories of finds and the ways in which they were used. The material includes large numbers of crucibles, ingot moulds, scrap metal and tools, as well as evidence for precious metal refining, both cupellation and parting. The evidence for gold, silver, copper alloy, lead, tin, and pewter working is then drawn together and the spatial and temporal distribution of these industries is discussed. Silverworking was the major non-ferrous metal industry and was at its peak in the mid tenth century; the contemporary finds of coin dies and trial stamps suggest that much of the silver may have been used for coinage, possibly with moneyers working on the site. There is evidence for tinning objects of other metals in the mid tenth century but most casting of small lead/tin objects took place later. Both gold and copper alloy working became more important in the eleventh century. The non-ferrous metalworking industries of 16--22 Coppergate are put in context by comparing the finds with those from other sites in York, the rest of England and beyond. Au
