Object type: BROOCH
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 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 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…

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 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 a horizontal break, at which point the bow has also been twisted. 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. Compared to the bow the plain leg is thinned. It tapers gradually, terminating in a ridged foot knob. On its lower surface the catch-plate survi…

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 …

A Roman copper-alloy initial T-shaped brooch, incomplete in so far as it is missing the majority of its pin. The brooch consists of cylindrical wings, bow and foot with catch-plate at the back. The wings are decorated with a pair of incised lines at their tip on the upper surface. The front of this decoration is demarcated by a incised longitudinal line which travels towards the slot, without reaching it. The remains of the circular copper alloy axis bar is visible at the tips. Between the wings is a slot in which the remnants of the pin are hinged. The pin has a pointed spur at its h…

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…
