A complete cast copper alloy miniature socketed axe head of Late Bronze Age to Roman date ( c. 1100 BC - AD 409). The axe head has a downeard-curving blade with square butt with indentation intended to represent a socket, and an integrally cast loop on the underside. The metal is smooth and quite shiny, especially the top side of the object. Such axe heads are considered to be miniature representations and possibly votive offerings of their full sized counterparts and have been associated with 'ritual' (cringe) activity or worn as amulets. The patina of this object suggests Late Bronze…

A cast copper alloy ring of probable Iron Age or Early Roman date, c. BC 800- AD 50. There is some debate as to the function of these decorated rings, in that some have been described as personal ornaments associated with articles of dress whilst others have described them as being associated with harness or strap fittings. The ring is complete and is circular in plan and sub-oval (lentoid) in cross section.Both sides of the ring is decorated with recessed dots, probably cast rather than punched; 26 on one side and c. 31 on the other. There is no other decoration. The ring measures 23.…

An incomplete copper-alloy one-piece brooch of 'Nauheim derivative' La Tene III type of the Late Iron Age or Early Roman period (c. AD 10 - 60). The brooch is formed from a single piece of copper alloy, retaining the bow, the catchplate and one turn of the four-spring coils at its head. The bow of the brooch is decorated with a single linear pattern down the centre, which is now very faint but is likely to be formed of repeating short horizontal lines.

An incomplete cast copper alloy Colchester one-piece brooch dating from the late Iron Age to early Roman period. Most of the spring, the pin and catch plate are missing. The brooch has a lump of copper alloy (of a different patina) attached near the top of the bow, possibly a miscasting or the result of the brooch being in contact with another copper item and exposed to high heat resulting in a fusing of the two elements. However as the bow appears to maintain its shape that primary suggestion is more likely. These brooches date from around AD 25-60.

A cast copper alloy miniature socketed looped axe dating from the Bronze/Iron Age transition to the early Roman period, that is c. 800 BC-AD 200. The axe is complete with a broken loop by which it formed a pendant, the loop being located on a thin edge. There is a rectangular 'socket' at the butt end of the axe and possibly a small casting spur on one edge. Miniature socketed axeheads can be dated from the Bronze Age/Iron Age transition through to the Roman period, though a date towards the earlier end of the spectrum is more likely. They probably functioned as amulets or votive offeri…

An incomplete cast copper alloy brooch of Adams Type 2Bb2 dating from the Middle to Late Iron Age, constructed in the La Tene III style (c. 300 BC - AD 100).

Each lobe is of a different size but both have a hollow reverse. One of the lobes has two U-shaped hollows opposite one another on the reverse edge - it is unclear what this is for but it could possibly be a p…

An incomplete copper alloy pin of Early Iron Age date (c. 800-600 BC). The remaining section of the pin consists of the head, which has three moulded ribs, and a length of the circular sectioned shank. The remains of the pin has been coiled, possibly to make the item smaller and easier to transport or store (for example if it was going to be melted down), or possibly it has been reshaped with the intention of being used as a finger ring. An identical pin, complete and in its original state, has been recorded from Quainton in Buckinghamshire - see BUC-1D3758 on this database.

A complete but slight damaged cast copper alloy fob dangler or dress fitting dating to the Late Iron Age (c. 100 BC - AD 80). The fob is extremely small, and may have been more suitable as a dress accessory rather than an item of horse harness decoration, which is what fobs are generally assumed to be (although this is far from certain). The fob features three openwork circles joined around a central triangular plate, which forms the base of the integrally cast suspension / attachment loop that extends from the reverse of the object. The loop is complete but one section is now broke…
