A copper alloy Iron Age unidnetified object of uncertain function. It is a tube of copper alloy with one side flat along the whole length. Each end of the tube is flared and it is decorated with a moulded design consisting of a ')(' pattern. In the flat edge of the tube is a rectangular slot which is filled and surrounded by iron corrosion. There is also ferrous corrosion inside the tube. The copper alloy element was probably attached to a larger iron object. The object is very similar in style to WAW-128D32, SWYOR-5C5FB5, SWYOR-D20FD1, SWYOR-D271D5 and SWYOR-09BA81, but is tubular ra…

A copper alloy Colchester brooch dating from 25 - 60 AD. It is made in one piece and has half of the integral coiled spring surviving. It would have had six turns. The strip of metal forming the sping projects from the back of the head, makes three turns on the right of the brooch (when viewed from the back), and then extends into the external chord which is held under the forward facing hook which is also integral. It breaks at this point but would have continued to make three turns at the other side before extending into the pin. The very small wings are plain, as is the circular se…

County: Nottinghamshire

Part of a probable Iron Age or Early Roman copper alloy beaded torc dating from 100 BC - 200 AD. The surviving fragment is four beads cast in one. The two centre beads are biconical, one of the outer beads is more rounded, probably owing to wear and corrosion, and the other has a more rectangular terminal. There is a simple collar between each pair of beads. There is iron corrosion along one side of the object, and testing with a magnet suggests that there is an iron core. It is not clear whether the iron along the edge has corroded from the inside, or whether it is from another objec…

A cast copper alloy toggle of late Iron Age or Early Roman date. It is a cylindrical bar decorated with 11 grooves running round the bar. There is a hollow in each end of the bar. From the centre of one side projects a broken loop, with one of the grooves dividing the loop into two halves as well. The breaks are worn and patinated. The toggle has a grey green patina. Compare LON-1A6571, CAM-DEB4B0, DENO-FE3BA7 and GLO-1B1400. HAMP-2931B4 and SWYOR-7D71D7 may also be related.

A copper alloy Iron Age mount in very good condition. The mount has a sub-spherical knob on a curved base. The base is an elongated oval in plan, with rounded ends. In profile, the bottom edge is convex suggesting the mount was fixed to a concave surface. The reverse, or underside is concave; U shaped. There is a small circular rivet hole in each end of the base, on the top face. The top and sides are decorated with curved double grooves. One line runs across the base at each end, just inside the rivet hole. Further lines spring from the centre of each of the first lines, and curve…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy unidentified object dating from the Iron Age. The object consists of a circular recessed area with a rivet hole in the centre. It has a raised rim, and at both ends is another rounded bar which are slightly curved. These are broken at both ends making the original object impossible to identify. However, the condition of the metal and the style strongly suggest an Iron Age date. It might be part of a strap junction or harness fitting.

Treasure case number 2011 T527 On 25th July 2011, a hoard of Iron Age metalwork (finds 1, 2, 4 and 6) was found by [two metal detectorists] while metal detecting on cultivated land. [Finder One] also made two additional finds (3 and 5) on the 20th September 2011 during geophysical survey of the findspot undertaken by York Archaeological Trust and a local archaeology group. The initial results from the resistivity survey show a rectangular feature to the immediate south of the finds. A large circular feature was also described by the surveyors, but is not marked on the interpretation…

A fragment of a platform decorated terret dating from the 1st century AD (1 - 100 AD). Only one platform from the terret survives. It is sub square in plan and flat in section, and is decorated with enamel. It sits above the hoop which is rounded in section. The design on the platform is of four lentoid petals arranged in a cross saltire on a red ground. Two opposing petals are filled with yellow enamel and the other two with blue. The platform is 15mm by 10mm. The finder notes that a similar example can be seen on the UKDFD website at http://www.ukdfd.co.uk/ukdfddata/showrecords.ph…

A probable incomplete cast copper alloy Iron Age ring-headed pin of 'swan's neck type'. The ring head has a rounded outer edge and the hole though the centre has an 'hourglass' form. The integral pin shaft is circular in section and departs from the ring at a tangent. The rod is defined from the loop by a groove round its base, making it look as if the rod could have been applied to the loop. The possible pin has a light green patina with patches of a reflective dark grey surface. Compare to NLM-520A57. This item was originally identified as a late Iron Age or Romano-British en…

Description: A gold-alloy bracelet with loop terminals, Iron Age (c. 100 - 50 BC). The bracelet is comprised of two ropes plaited together, each rope is made up of two wires twisted together. Each terminal is formed of two loops. The outside surface of the terminals has been filled with a lower melting temperature gold-alloy containing approximately 16% more copper than the rest of the bracelet. The overall effect is to transform double loop terminals into single loop terminals. Metal content at the surface: 55% gold; 38% silver; and at least 7% copper. Weight: 63.74g; Maximum Di…

A cast copper-alloy Iron Age linch pin terminal, which is the foot of the pin. The socketed part of the foot is broken, leaving only a shallow concave area. This would have extended into a larger socket which would have held the iron pin, which has long since corroded away. The exterior of the socket tapers to the terminal, where it curves forward and expands into a flat circular plate. The flat surface is decorated with a central recessed cell for enamel, with two concentric rings recessed for enamel round it. These are divided by bands of raised metal. No traces of the enamel su…
