A copper alloy Roman brooch; type uncertain owing to corrosion and damage, but probably dating from the 1st Century AD, perhaps a Colchester derivative. The head of the brooch and the pin are missing. The bow is narrow and oval in section, wider at the top and tapering to a point at the foot. There is a possible decorative panel on the top part of the surviving bow, but this could also be corrosion. The break at the top of the bow is ancient. There is no evidence of a catchplate, but the foot of the bow is rolled into a tiny loop. It is not clear whether this is damage or intentiona…

A copper alloy Roman brooch, a Dolphin type dating from 55 - 100 AD with distinctive notches across the upper bow. The wings are tubular to hold the axis bar for the hinge pin which is missing apart from the very top. The humped bow is oval in section. It is decorated with a groove along each side, and tapers to a point at the foot. The upper bow has three wide notches across the bow. It has been suggested by a local finder that these notches are a characteristic of dolphin brooches from North Lincolnshire. Other examples include NLM-11DA12, NLM-7AAD80, NLM-E59C77, NLM-06BB85 and NL…

A cast copper alloy annular brooch of Medieval date. The brooch frame is hexagonal and has six forward projecting conical collets. The frame is shaped to the collets. The collets are equally spaced and integral. The settings are empty but still contain a white paste (possibly calcium carbonate) which would have held a stone in place. A pin constriction survives between two of the collets but the pin is missing. The metal is a mid greenish-grey colour, suggesting a white metal coating. A similar brooch can be seen in Egan & Pritchard, p249, Fig: 160. Compare also YORYM-1924C6, NM…

There is a transverse concave groove across the top of the bow, and the rest of the bow is decorated with curved lines which are far apart at the top, and close together at the base. The area between the lines is stippled…
