Cooking pot



This small, copper-alloy tripod cauldron was found in the galley of the Mary Rose.

It appears to have been repaired at some point, one of the legs being slightly longer and of a different style to the others, and it has a hairline fracture around the joint not present in the other two, and there are signs of solder repair work around the rim. The small size of it, a capacity of 2.6 litres, suggests that it was used to cook meat for the officers, rather than the ordinary crew.
