A Roman copper-alloy disc brooch. The circular brooch is of flat section and has a cast geometric design in its upper surface, the cells defined by low, flat-topped ridges. This pattern takes the form of a ten-pointed star or stylised flower head, with a circular setting at the centre and a single pellet within each triangle. Traces of blue enamel survive within the area between the star and the outer rim, and also within a few of the points of the star; the inner field of the star retains much of its yellow enamel inset, with an unidentified colour in the central circle. The hinge an…

Roman (2nd to early 3rd century) plate brooch: The copper alloy brooch is a trefoil in plan, composed of three adjoining circular cells, each of which is decorated with a central pellet and an annulet. In the central field there is light green coloured enamel, which may have originally been red, and the exterior field is filled with mid green enamel, and this may be the original colour. The combination of the three raised circles creates a small triangular cell in the centre of the plate, which is also filled with enamel, possibly the light green. The reverse is flat and undecorated, …

A complete copper alloy heraldic horse harness swivel banner dating to the late 13th or early 14th century AD.
