Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Incomplete Colchester-derivative brooch of Mackreth's (2011) Type CD H dating to the period c. AD 90 - 150. The pin, lower bow, foot and catchplate are missing.

The wings are cylindrical, with a seam across the back and a central slot for the missing hinged pin. The corroded remains of the iron axis bar are visible within. One wing is incomplete due to old damage. The bow arches back from the head and tapers to a heavily worn break. There are faint traces of longitudinal engraved decoration running down the centre of the bow.
