In 2004 a large group of Iron Age cauldrons was discovered at a site near Chiseldon in the United Kingdom. It was a unique find: the largest group of Iron Age cauldrons ever to be discovered in Europe.
The group of 12 or more cauldrons provide a chance to research their manufacture, use and burial. This will help re-assess the chronology and social importance of cauldrons, as well as related sheet-metal vessels, in Iron Age Britain and Ireland in a wider European context. Their study will significantly contribute to the understanding of these important artefacts.
