Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Cast copper-alloy unidentified object, possibly Roman or medieval in date (c. AD43-1500). The object is heavy and its original outline is heavily obscured by corrosive products its surface. It appears to have a flat hump-shaped body like a brooch, possibly, and a small loop at one end which may be the head. The lug may be pierced, but this is uncertain. With the present evidence, the object can, unfortunately, not be identified.
