Late Iron Age to early Roman (c.AD 0 to c. 100) cast copper alloy La Tene I brooch. The brooch is cast as one piece.

The bow is a 'C' shape in profile and is oval in section which increases slightly towards the apex and tapers towards the lower portion of the bow. The lower portion of the bow forms the…

Iron Age to Roman (800 BC to AD 400) unidentified artefact: The copper alloy fragment has been cast and is a sub-oval with abraded edges. The edges are abraded and may not be the original edge as the patina does not cover them. One surface has a sub-oval indentation and the surface is slightly convex. Both surfaces has a mid green-brown heavy patina. The artefact measures 41.8mm long, 22.18mm wide, 8.33mm thick and weighs 25.52g. The function of the artefact is not known, nor is the date, but the heavy patination suggests it is of Iron Age or Roman date.
