Although this medieval copper alloy cauldron, found on Bishopsgate, Norwich,  looks like it might have been used for magic spells and potions, was actually originally used to prepare big batches of stew and broth in a medieval home. It was found around 1860 during building work for new cottages and in 1865, Sir John Boileau, Vice President of the Institute for Archaeology, bought it for the museum's collection. This would be a lovely item for anyone with an interest in local history, the foodie who has everything, a local eaterie wanting to raise its profile or perhaps it could even 'stir' the imagination as a 'magic cauldron' for fairytale, magic or Harry Potter fans of all ages.

The minimum donation to become a Silver Adopter of this object is £100. After clicking 'Donate', please enter this amount before continuing. Donations under the suggested amount will still count towards our target but will be considered a donation rather than an adoption.

You can also choose to become  a Gold Adopter of this item by entering the total amount of £300, provided there are no other adopters yet.

 Once you have made payment there will be an option to tick a box ‘I’m happy to be contacted by Norfolk Museums Development Foundation to hear more about the impact of my donation, its appeals, events and other ways to donate, by email and post.’ If you do not click to accept further contact or send us your contact details we will be unable to send you your adopter pack. Please be assured that we will not send you further marketing materials unrelated to your adoption and you can opt out at any time.
