A copper-alloy ring-shaped artefact, probably Iron Age or Roman in date. A circumferential rim, bordered by a pair of grooves, extends around the outside of the object. The central perforation is hourglass-shaped. Diameter: 17.1mm; height: 6.9mm. Weight: 6.85g. The form of this piece suggests it is probably a decorative bead or strap fitting. A date of Iron Age to Roman is postulated, based on its form and patination.

Object type: PIN
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Roman copper-alloy pin which has been bent deliberately. The base of the subcylindrical head of the pin tapers into the integrally cast shaft, the two elements separated from one another by a pair of circumferential grooves with dividing ridge. The circular-sectioned shaft, which tapers to a point, has been bent into a suboval shape, possibly to create a type of hooked fastening. Length: 31.1mm; diameter of head: 7.9mm. Weight: 5.42g. This is a common form of Roman pin, the numerous excavated parallels including nos. 211 - 217 from excavations at Baldock, Hertfordshire (Stead and …

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Roman copper-alloy mount with enamelled decoration. The discoidal head of the mount has a circular cell at its centre; this is surrounded by two concentric cells, with a separating moulded ring and a circumferential rim. Much of the enamel has been lost, but the inset in the central cell appears to have comprised a blue flower head with red centre and a white field surrounding. No trace of enamel remains in the inner ring. The few remaining insets in the outer ring indicate a pattern comprised of alternating rectangular cells of dark (blue or black) and light-coloured enamel. There …

Object type: BROOCH
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A copper-alloy disc brooch, probably dating from the Late Early-Medieval period. The disc is of thin section, its upper surface decorated by a relief-moulded pattern, the nature of which is unclear. A perforation, located just off-centre, would appear to be a casting flaw. The pin attachment comprises a single right-angled lug with perforation for the now missing pin; it is located opposite, and at 90 degrees to, the catchplate. Width: 21.3mm; height: 21.7mm; thickness of plate: 1.7mm. Weight: 3.05g. The form of this brooch, particularly the configuration of pin attachment and catch…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Part of a Late Bronze Age socketed axehead, South-eastern type, dating to the period c. 1000 - c. 800 BC. Part of the rim and body survive, as does the side loop. The rim comprises a pair of horizontal ridges, separated from each other by a shallow groove. Portions of two of the body's slightly convex surfaces remain, with a near-right-angled corner between. The top of the side loop springs from the rim's lower ridge; it is of suboval section and overlies a vertical casting seam. The patination and wear of the edges suggest that the piece became detached in antiquity. Length: 37.4mm;…
