Cylindrical body with slot through a central bulge. The ends are capped by circular lugs. Raised band around centre. A small circular pit to either side of the slot on one side of the toggle gives the impression of a pair of 'eyes'. These were probably once filled with enamel. Indeed, one of these pits retains a miniscule amount of red/orange enamel.

Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Linchpins were designed to hold a wheel on to a fixed axle. They have a long history in Iron Age Europe, but are a relatively late development in Britain. Common to late Iron Age metalwork in Britain, linchpins in this country develop their own distinctive decorative characteristics. The majority of linchpins comprise a copper alloy head and tip that are cast onto an iron bar, although a few 'all iron' examples are known. This example comprises the fragment of a copper alloy linchpin foot. This linch-pin foot, when complete, would have emulated a horses hoof and lower leg. Not un…
