Distorted beech turned box with single groove near the base and seating for a lid. The box was found in two pieces and is part of a group of objects found in a Jewish house. This wooden
vessel was excavated from a rubbish pit behind a house in Milk Street, City of London. This box - as well as all the other objects were found in the house that belonged to Bonamicus, a Jew from York, who lived in Milk street in 1276. Among the many findings, there was a fragment of a wooden tally-stick which suggests that the owner was involved in large-scale financial dealings.
