A copper alloy Iron Age/Roman La Tene III brooch dating to AD 25-100. The brooch is incomplete and is missing its spring, the pin and the catchplate. All that remains is the bow of the brooch which is bent and a small fragment of the catchplate The bow starts with a narrow blunt point and then broadens into the bow which then gradually narrows towards the foot. It appears that there is angular bend where the bow narrows at the foot section which appears to be straight and uncurving, the bow possibly creating a flat 'P' shape. There is a small fragment of catchplate attached to the back of the foot section. The bow is decorated with an incised vertical line along the wider section of the bow. The patina is a mid green.
