Central London

Central London by thesweetcheat The Battersea Cauldron (dating to 800-650 BC), on display in the British Museum.

"This cauldron is a late example, dating to the beginning of the Iron Age. It was made from seven sheets of bronze, carefully shaped and riveted together. The upper sheets are sharply out-turned and corrugated for strength. A tubular binding was added to the rim and two ring-handles were attached by riveted strips."
