Iron Age bronze tankard. This tankard with a capacity of four pints is made from oak wooden staves covered in beaten bronze sheeting. The handle was cast and attached separately. Both the tankard and its contents would have been highly valued. It was probably used at large ceremonial feasts for the communal drinking of imported wine. It was found in the River Thames at Brentford.
100 BC - 50 AD
