|The type of beautiful enameled bronze flask that was made from Castleford moulds|
So far Castleford is the only place in Roman Britain where this specialist manufacture has been found.
As they are manufacturing waste, they are not impressive to look at, and in the past archaeologists may have overlooked this type of evidence. The workshop was aimed at archaeologists, finds specialists and museum curators so in the future they are more likely to recognise this kind of material when it turns up in excavations.
