A Iron Age/Roman copper alloy Nauheim Derivative brooch dating to c AD 25-100. The brooch is slightly misshapen and is missing its pin. The brooch comprises the four curls of the spring mechanism (the pin has broken off) which leads down into the bow of the brooch. The bow broadens sharply beneath the spring curls and remains the same width until it reaches the foot where it narrows sharply and turns back to form the catchplate. The bow is decorated with paired rows of punch-marks down each side of the upper bow. The brooch weighs 3.65g and measures 47.07mm in length, 10.59mm in width (across the spring curls - the bow is 6.51mm in width), 11.58mm in height and 0.94mm in thickness. Cf Mackreth, DF, (2011) Brooches in Late Iron Age and Roman Britain, Oxbow Books, Oxford, vol 2, p 10, plate 7, no 4014 and vol 1, p 15, Class 2.c no 4014.
