Summary/Abstract: This article discusses five bronze vessels from the funds of the Regional History Museum in Burgas dated to the 1st–3rd centuries AD. The aim of the analyses was the determination of the alloy used for manufacturing and the type of the corrosion products. The results were applied to some technological aspects regarding the manufacturing and the corrosion processes that occur in the vessels afterwards. The data gathered was later used to assign a proper conservation treatment and helpful to the restoration interventions. Unfortunately, the vessels were accidental finds therefore the interpretation of the results and the comparative analyses are not complete.
