BROOCH

Unique ID: GLO-6EFDAC

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

An Iron Age copper alloy La Tene I brooch, dating to c 400-200 BC. The brooch is nearly complete, although the pin and some of the spring are missing.

The brooch has a deeply C-shaped bow which is thicker towards the middle where it forms a broad flat panel that has two vertical groves running down its length. The narrowed head of the brooch is curved round several times to form the spring and pin: the pin is missing and only two curls of the spring remain. The foot of the brooch is also narrowed and bent upwards to curve back on itself; the terminal is decorated with a collar/bead/constriction moulding. The catchplate projecting from the right side of the foot is complete.
