A copper-alloy Roman zoomorphic plate brooch in the shape of a rabbit shown in profile. The rabbit is depicted seated with compact, rounded body and proportionally small head. The fore and hind paws seem to be truncated, but would not have been that prominent to judge from comparanda. The eye is formed of a punch and a small ear extends behind the head. The body is corroded and pitted; it is pitting that seems visible rather than recesses for enamel found on similar brooches. The lower surface features a broken and abraded double pin lug at the centre of the rabbit's rear, and a a…

A Roman copper-alloy lower part of the bow and catch-plate of a brooch. The upper part of the bow, the head of the brooch and pin are missing due to an old patinated break. In cross-section, the bow is rectangular with rounded corners; it generally has flat upper and lower surfaces. The bow is elongated trapezoidal and tapers gradually from the point of the break (W.: 5.9mm) to a width of 3.5mm at the foot. The foot is simply squared off and decorated with two transversely incised grooves; the leg above is plain. On the lower surface the solid catch-plate survives well. It is broa…

A copper-alloy finger-ring with integral key dating to the earlier Roman period. The hoop is broadly circular and D-shaped in cross-section, being flat internally (int. dia.: 17.2mm max.). There are no shoulders as such and the bezel is only slightly thicker than the hoop. As with such artefacts the bit protrudes at right angles to the bezel such that the key element lay flat on the finger. The bit begins with a trapezoidal base that is decorated with a pair of transverse grooves. Above this is a recess each side to a narrow waist before the main sub-triangular upper element. The tria…

An incomplete large Roman cast copper-alloy developed T-shaped brooch dating to the late 1st to early 2nd century AD. The pin, lower part of the bow and the foot are missing following old damage. The head has two hollow cylindrical wings with flattened upper surfaces. They held the axis bar for the hinged pin. The axis bar survives in part, largely corroded, made of iron. Between the wings on the under side of the head is a slot in which the pin would have hinged. On the underside of the wings behind the slot is a thickened patch which may have helped retain the pin in use. R…

A Roman copper-alloy bow brooch dating to the 1st to 2nd century AD, incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin. The head has two hollow cylindrical wings both slightly abraded at their tips.

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…
