Er, Trevor, 1t's either not there (only the double cauldron hook as far as I
can see) or you haven't put it up yet? Or, it's me!

Subject: Re: [BRITARCH] WHAT IS IT - A double ended cold chisel?
The responses to our last 'button feature' are now on-line.
To follow the buttons we have a real 'brain teaser' which has us all
completely baffled! Excavated from a 19th century context, with the
corrosion removed and the metal cleaned up, the object is in relatively good
condition and appears to be made of steel and weighs exactly 1 kg. It has a
named stamped on the side with individual letter stamps and reads M_ _ LAN
underneath which is LONDON.
Is it possible to have a two ended chisel blade? We think not! But what
could it have been produced for?

Map' on the first page and follow 'WHAT IS IT' pages.
