Two fragments of a cast copper-alloy bracelet, probably dating to the Roman period (c. AD 43-200). Both fragments are rectangular in plan and cross-section, have straight edges and are broken at each end. Both are decorated on their upper surface with two straight parallel linear grooves extending from one end to the other. The underside of each fragment is flat and plain, although one of the fragments is bent inwards at one end. Both fragments have a patchy light green patina. Both fragments measure 16mm in length, 6.5mm in width and 1mm thick. They weigh a combined 0.62 grams.
