Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Late Iron Age to Roman copper alloy Langton Down brooch, probably of Mackreth's (2011) Type 2.b, dating to the period c. AD 25 - 60. The wings are incomplete. They would have originally formed a cylindrical hood to house the missing spring and axis bar. The bow is divided from the spring case by a crescentic cross-moulding. The bow tapers from the head and terminates in an old break. It exhibits reeded longitudinal moulding. The lower, bow, foot and catchplate are missing.

See: Mackreth, D.F, 2011, Vol. I, p. 34 & Vol. II, p. 23, pl. 20, no. 11746.
