An incomplete copper-alloy late Iron Age to early Roman brooch of the Colchester Type, dating to c. AD 20-60. The head of the brooch has two abraded short wings and half of the integral spring coils still surviving on its back. The top of the head has a forward facing hook still housing a fragment of the chord. The bow is D-shaped in cross-section and slightly curved in profile; it meets the head creating a right angle. On the back face of the foot there are little traces of the integral catch-plate. The surface is very corroded and worn.
