Copper alloy possible brooch fragment, as kindly suggested by the finder. Cast oval section slightly tapered object, with three short ragged spurs at its broader end, and pointed - now sharply so - at the other. Fiercely abraded. This might be the bow of a Colchester brooch, though, if so, not only has it lost almost all of the modest head of the Colchester type from one end, but also all traces of a catch plate at the other at the other, foot, end. Suggested date: possibly Late Iron Age, 100BC-AD43 Length: 50.4mm, Width: 7.7mm, Thickness: 3.5mm, Weight: 3.51gms

Copper alloy ring fragment. A segment from a solid cast ring of round section and with a diameter tapering between 9mm and 11.7mm; probably of external diameter c.50mm if or when it was complete. Distortion on one side may suggest the object has been partly melted, which for a material with a high melting point like a copper alloy is likely to have come about deliberately, while there is a deep cut on the other side. A massy casting might hint at a Roman date. Suggested date: Unknown, Late Iron Age to Roman, 100 BC - AD410. Length: 33.3mm, Diameter/Thickness (max): 11.7mm, Weight: 20.77gms
