The Metalworking Remains from 14-20 The Butts, Worcester

Author(s): Eleanor Blakelock

67.9 kg of ironworking debris was recovered from pits or ditches, of which the vast majority was iron smelting waste. A large proportion of the iron waste was from Roman contexts although some had been deposited during the post Roman period. The evidence suggests that smelting was probably taking place near to the excavation site and was probably occurring from the same site that the waste from both Farrier Street and Deansway came from. No smithing slag or residues were identified in the ironworking assemblage. The fragment of ore found at the site is similar to others found in the Forest of Dean.
