Commentary: Among the most interesting of the finds made during the period under review were two fragments of a large lead vessel which were turned up the plough at Walesby in the autumn of 1959. After finding the first piece the ploughman, Mr. H. Saunby, ploughed over the same spot to a greater depth, and this produced the second fragment. Subsequent attempts were unrewarded, however, and a limited excavation of the find-spot by Mr. Saunby failed to reveal anything further.
