Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A small irregular fragment which includes a circular moulding with hollow centre at one end, and a projecting spike at the other. The finder kindly suggests an identification as a fragment of a brooch [of unspecified date or type], though to this reporter the spike could equally be the abraded remnant of a loop from some other category of object altogether. Fiercely abraded, possibly partly melted. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Medieval, 43-1500

Length: 14.7mm, Width/Thickness: 8mm, Weight: 2.06gms
