A fragment from the head and upper bow of a Roman copper-alloy initial T-shaped brooch. Between the wings is a slot on the lower surface for a hinged pin, below which a sub oval recess. Aligned with the slot on the upper surface is a longitudinal ridge which is given a ridged, or serrated, quality by numerous transverse nicks. Just before an old transverse break two lower, finer ridges begin to flank the central one. At the head end another old break has removed any lateral elements from the wings, or any of the head located above. The fragment curves in profile in a regular fas…

A fragment from the head and upper bow of a Roman copper-alloy bow brooch, possibly a Trumpet derivative. At the head is an abraded plate on the lower surface of which is a double semicircular pin lug. This latter has been perforated centrally to take an axis bar which was made of iron given the corrosion product around the lug. In places the plate has been broken right down to the lug; presumably it was once semicircular. The pin is missing. The bow springs from the base of the head-plate and curves through ninety degrees such that it is parallel to the head-plate. The bow is …

An incomplete cast copper-alloy Dorset-type T-shaped brooch of early Roman date. The head, pin and upper part of the bow are missing to old breaks; the rest of the bow, the leg and catch-plate survive. The head is lost to an old, broadly horizontal break. The bow is sub-rectangular in cross-section. The front is moulded with two ridges at the sides and a central bevelled ridge with deep longituidinal groove. Between the ridges are very fine diagonally incised lines. Compared to the bow the plain leg is thinned. It tapers gradually, terminating in a ridged foot knob. On its lower surfa…

A copper alloy T-shaped brooch of early Roman date. This Wilsford type brooch is incomplete in as much as it is missing its pin. The cylindrical wings conceal the copper-alloy axis bar for the hinged pin. Their upper surfaces are decorated with two incised lines at each end. The head of the pin has a pointed projection for tensioning, but this is all that survives of the pin (loose). The bow has a D-shaped cross-section and projects forward from the wings. The upper bow has moulded decoration in the form of four ridges with central grooves either side of a central recessed rib. Its l…

An incomplete Roman copper-alloy T-shaped brooch, probably of devolved type, incomplete in so far as it is missing the pin, leg and concomitant catch-plate. The brooch consists of cylindrical wings and flat integral headloop, with bow below. The wings are seemingly plain. The remains of the circular iron axis bar is visible at the tips, as well as in the form of corrosion product in the slot. No traces of the pin are obvious within the slot. The bow projects from the front of the brooch in the centre of the head, in a steady arc that curves round through ninety degrees before trave…

The leg and foot from a Roman copper-alloy bow brooch, possibly of the local devolved T-shaped type and dating to the 2nd century AD. The bow and leg are formed of a wide, flat and thin strip which narrows gradually towards the end. It is 11.7mm wide at the break and 6.6mm wide above the footknob. The knob is formed of a thick semicircle set at 90 degrees to the foot and slightly wider at 8.9mm.

A Roman copper-alloy devolved T-shaped brooch dating to the late first to second century AD, incomplete in so far as it is missing most of its pin. The head has two short cylindrical wings, 23.2mm wide, to hold the axis bar for the hinged pin. Between the wings is a slot in which the remnants of the pin are hinged. The pin has a pointed spur at its head to aid hinging. It narrows to a circular cross-section before an early break. What survives has been bent downwards towards the back of the bow on the right hand side (when viewed in plan from below). There is corrosion product on the …

The fantail foot of a Roman bow brooch, probably a bow-and-fantail type or Aesica varient (1st/2nd century AD). The brooch has broken at a central circular 'button'. This would have been raised up; the upwards angle as the button connects to the foot seems an original feature and suggests the bow above was also raised. A central setting may have been housed within a double concentric ring moulding that forms the button or this may have been the point from which the bow projected up and out. The foot below is broadly triangular with slightly projecting ring settings at each lower corne…

The head and upper bow from a copper-alloy Developed T-shaped brooch of early Roman date. The leg is missing below a central knop due to an old break. Furthermore, only the head of the pin survives. Cylindrical wings conceal the copper-alloy axis bar for the hinged pin. Their upper surfaces are decorated with two incised lines at each end. The head of the pin has a pointed projection for tensioning, but this is all that survives of the pin; the very beginnings of the shaft have been been to one side. On the upper surface the wing tip are decorated with a pair of transversely incise…

The head and upper part of the bow of a Roman cast copper-alloy initial T-shaped brooch with hinged pin dating to c. AD 60-100. The lower part of the bow, foot and pin are missing to worn breaks. The brooch head has open-ended cylindrical wings containing an iron axis bar for the hinge. One wing has lost its upper half, possibly as a result of corrosion of the axis bar within. The complete wing is decorated with a double transverse ridge moulding towards its top with an incised line within. There is a large transverse slot through the centre of the underside of the head, between the w…

A fragmentary cast copper alloy developed T-shaped brooch of early Roman date. Present is the most of the head and upper bow; the pin, lower bow, including leg and catch-plate, are missing. The head is formed of cylindrical wings with a central slot. One of the wings is broken with only about half of the original wing surviving. Orange/brown corrosion product in the slot and on the lower surface of the bow below suggests that the axis bar for the hinged pin was made of iron. Both wings are decorated with a trio of grooves, thus creating a pair of ridges, at the end largely on the lowe…

A copper-alloy Roman probable initial T-shaped brooch, incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin (later 1st-century AD). The brooch survives well, only having suffered some post-depositional abrasions and slight pitting. The head has tubular wings, flattened slightly on their upper surface. They are apparently plain. The axis bar is largely obscured by the wings, but is can be said to have been made from iron judging by orange corrosion product both at the wing terminals and within the pin slot. The hinged pin is missing. The upper bow emerges from the wings initially at a…

A damaged and incomplete copper-alloy 2nd-century Roman disc brooch of the tutulus type. The circular brooch would have originally had eight plain, squared off peripheral lugs; three are now missing. The lugs are external on a rim. The rim is echoed by a ridge within; the groove within may have held enamel. This border has received considerable old damage leading to fractures and losses at the circumference and the grooved zone within. A second zone of similar width sits within the inner ridge and before the central boss; this has suffered considerable losses and abrasions too. The ce…

A fragment from a Roman cast copper-alloy developed T-shaped brooch dating to c. AD 75-150. The fragment consists of the abraded bow and foot with catch-plate on the reverse; the head and pin are both missing. The bow is flat with rounded edges. At its centre it expands into a flattened lozenge shape. This shape is decorated on the front with a moulded lozenge within a lozenge recess. Within the moulding is a further recess with traces of red enamel. The bow curves gradually in profile. The catch-plate is abraded at the foot. For similar brooches see Hattatt (2000, 303; refs. 318, 319).

The lower part of the bow and catch-plate of a Roman copper-alloy brooch. The upper part of the bow, the head of the brooch and pin are missing due to an old, twisted irregular break. In cross-section, the bow is rectangular with rounded corners; it generally has flat upper and lower surfaces, though with a recessed channel on the lower . The bow is elongated trapezoidal and tapers gradually from the point of the break (W.: 8.5mm) to a width of 5.6mm at the foot. The foot terminates in a transverse ridge decorated with two angled incisions. The leg above is finely decorated above a pa…
