Late Iron Age to early Roman copper alloy La Tene brooch, 54mm in length, 14mm wide and 3mm thick with a weight of 6.93grams.

The brooch is almost complete and consists of a circular cross sectioned wire forming a spring of 4 coils and a tapering pin still with a sharp point. This then merges into a semi-circular sectioned curved bow which flattens and terminates into a triangular catch plate c.15mm long, with a central circular hole 2mm in diameter. This is just missing its turned outer edge.

Class: Nauheim derivative La Tene III
