Six fragments of copper alloy ?cauldron fragments. All are flat, one shows traces of possible carination and one a finished edge. These two details suggest that the fragments, which are in a heavier gauge than other copper alloy fragments from the burial, may come from the rim and body of a large straight-walled cauldron.

Details sugest that the fragments, which are in a heavier gauge than other copper alloy fragments from the burial, may come from the rim and body of a large straight-walled cauldron (cf. cauldron 1, Sutton Hoo Mound 1) rather than a lugged cauldron (Sutton Hoo Mound 17) or a shallow, open bowl.
