Roman (AD c. 69-96) T-shaped brooch: The copper-alloy brooch has a cylindrical crossbar with a copper-alloy axis bar within. The crossbar has a central slot on the reverse to allow the pin to be hinged, and only a fragment of the pin remains. The outer face of the wings is undecorated and are slightly incomplete. The bow protrudes from the centre of the cross bar and is slightly hump-like and is sub semi-circular in section. The bow and bow head are undecorated. The bow tapers to a blunt broken point above where the catchplate would have been. The brooch surface is slightly abraded and has mid green/grey brooch matte patina. It measures 21.67mm long, 17.31mm wide and it weighs 2.9g.

The brooch is an initial T-shaped brooch, which are described as being usually hinged, not enamelled, with no head stud and having fine decoration and date to the Flavian period, AD 69-96 (Bayley and Butcher, 2004: p. 159).
