Record ID: SF-899EA3
Object type: BRIDLE BIT
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy probably Iron Age or early Roman bridle bit. This is likely to be part of the central link from a two- or three-link bit. It consists of an oval-shaped loop, circular in cross-section with a flattened circular swelling extending from one end and a short, narrow point from one side of the other end. There appears to be a break in the centre of the outer face of the circular swelling, from where another loop probably extended originally. The point projecting from the other side may be the result of mis-casting as the outer edge of this side is also irregular in…

An incomplete copper alloy Iron Age to Roman Colchester brooch. The brooch is very small in size and extremely corroded. The head originally had two short, strip-like wings, but one of these is partially missing and both are very corroded. At the top of the head there is a very corroded forward-facing hook, still holding the remains of the copper alloy chord. The rest of the pin fitting and the pin itself are missing. The bow is D-shaped in cross-section and tapers to a short point at the tip due to heavy corrosion. The catch-plate is missing. Colchester brooches were in use during…

An incomplete copper alloy Iron Age to Roman dropped-bar terret. The object consists of a larger oval loop with a smaller rectangular loop extending from one side. There is a gap between the two loops caused by wear from use. The oval loop has a slightly thickened, rounded outer edge and low raised ridges on both faces to either side of its inner edge. The rectangular loop is slightly narrower than the oval one. The surface of the metal is fairly corroded. Terrets were attached to yokes positioned across the backs of pairs of ponies, functioning as rein guides. Lewis (2015, 96, tab…

A fragment of a copper alloy Iron Age to early medieval penannular brooch. Just under half of the hoop survives. This tapers to a wedge-like point at one end, which is probably the remains of a broken reflexed terminal typically of Type D (or occasionally Type E). The hoop is oval in cross-section and its outer face is decorated with closely spaced transverse grooves creating an ribbed effect. It survives in good condition and the breaks are fresh. The fragment is likely to be part of a Type D penannular brooch, which were in use from the end of the 1st century BC to the 7th century A…

An incomplete copper alloy Iron Age to Roman Leontomorphe or 'lion bow derivative' brooch. Only the upper part of the brooch survives. This has a small integral rivet to the reverse of the lower part of the bow where it would have attached to a fantail foot. The head is semi-cylindrical in form, probably fully cylindrical originally, with damage around all the edges. The upper bow is slightly curved in profile and the outer face is decorated with two rounded lips, curving outwards to either side of a narrow transverse ridge (the residual form of the full lion). It is worn and corroded.…

A fragment of a copper alloy and red glass inlaid Iron Age object, perhaps a mount.

The groove encircles the fragment and then spirals inwards culminating in an expanded lobe with a recessed circle to one side of it in the centre of the outer face. The groove, its terminal lobe and the circle are all filled with red glass, although this is missing in places within the groove. The breaks remain fairly …

An incomplete copper alloy Iron Age La Tene 1b brooch. Only the bow and the foot of the brooch survive. The bow is circular in cross-section and has a mid-arch. It narrows slightly towards the reverted foot, the outer face of which is moulded into a zoomorphic form consisting of a rounded 'head' followed by an upturned 'snout' divided into two by a transverse groove. The lower part of the foot has a deep groove across its outer face forming a small catch-plate. It survives in fair condition. The size of the arch suggests that this is a La Tene 1b rather than 1a brooch. These date t…

An incomplete copper alloy Iron Age brooch. Only the bow and part of the foot survive. The bow is circular in cross-section and has a low, wide arch in profile. At one end it terminates in a break and at the other the foot extends outwards at a right-angle, with part of the very worn catch-plate attached to one side.
