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…

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 …

A lid formed of thick lead sheet with oval domed centre of probably Roman date. The sheet has been cut broadly into a rectangular shape. It is thick at c. 3-4mm. A large sub-oval dome has been formed at the centre from hammering from one side. It attains a height of c. 45mm and measures c. 200mm by max. width c. 125mm; one side tapers and it is c. 110mm at the narrower end. The lid was attached by iron rivets, 15 in total, that follow the edge of the dome rather than the lid overall. They are generally evenly spaced, though with a cluster towards one corner. They have expanded domes a…

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 T-shaped brooch of early Roman date. Present is the head, with broken pin, and upper bow; the lower bow, including leg and catch-plate, are missing.

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…
