A corroded and incomplete cast copper-alloy Colchester brooch dating to the late Iron Age to early Roman period, c. 25-65 AD. An one-piece example, the head has suffered considerable damage with the wings, rearward hook and spring surviving only in very small parts. The brooch decreases from a thickness of 11.45mm at the head to 4mm at the bow. At the catchplate end the brooch tapers to a sharp point. The catchplate itself is highly abraded. The artefact has corroded to a red-brown colour.
