A twisted fragment consisting of approximately a quarter of a cast copper-alloy bracelet or armlet of late Roman date (c. 4th century AD). The fragment consists of the bracelet's terminal, the hook end, with abraded hook extant. The bracelet is rectangular with rounded corners in cross-section. In profile it has been twisted to one side, then round on itself such that it abuts the side of the hooked end at right angles to it. The bracelet expands in width gradually from the hook end. It is decorated unifacially using multiple motifs. What survives on this example is a raised lozenge w…

A damaged fragment from a copper-alloy strip bracelet of late Roman date (c. 4th century AD). The artefact is elongated and sub-rectangular in plan. In profile it has been bent upwards at one end and downwards at the other, distorted from its original curve. The bracelet fragment is decorated unifacially with punched ring-and-dot motifs. These are set within a so-called 'wave crest' motif, the wave crests created by alternating notches, slightly offset, on the upper and lower edge. It bears comparison with a bracelet illustrated in Crummy (1983, 42; 1704). The surviving termina…

A fragment of a Roman copper-alloy bracelet, possibly cut down for reuse as a finger ring. The fragment is bent into a tight C-shape, with its width gradually tapering from one possible original terminal end. The bracelet fragment is decorated on the upper surface with two sets of diagonal lines each emerging from an incised line that runs down the centre of the bracelet, giving the appearance of nested Vs. The terminal end is finished with a transverse groove. As a bracelet this fragment would be classed as one with multiple motifs, a type current from c. AD 350 onwards (see, for exa…

A body fragment from an early Roman copper-alloy wide-cuff bracelet. The fragment is broadly rectangular, broken at both ends. It has a very shallow curve in profile, exaggerated at one end presumably due to post-depositional damage. In cross-section it is thin and rectangular. The upper surface is decorated longitudinally by an incised border at both edges, within which a grooved channel. Within these is what appears to be a complementary grooved channel within the centre of which sits a ridge decorated with diagonally incised nicks. The effect is of ropework either side of a centra…

A fragment of briquetage of Roman date. The briquetage, coarse ceramic material, is irregular in shape with only one surviving original flat surface. This latter is more oxidised than the core and bears imprints possibly of organic material. Briquetage is the name for coarse fired ceramic objects, evaporating vessels and supporting pillars, used in the production of salt. There is a known saltworks at East Huntspill and therefore unsurprising that this fragment was found here. The ceramic supporting pillar is not closely datable but salt working is known in this area from the…

A fragment from a cast copper-alloy Roman bow brooch of 1st to 2nd century AD date. The fragment consists of the lower bow and the foot, including the catch-plate. The bow has a flattened circular cross-section. It narrows and thickens seamlessly into the triangular catch-plate. The catch-plate has bent bent slightly to one side and the fold been abraded. The artefact has a variable mid/dark-green patina. One may note that this seamless transition from bow to foot is a characteristic of T-shape brooches such a definitive classification has not been given here pending further work.

A fragment from a cast copper-alloy Roman bow brooch of probable 1st century AD date. The fragment consists of the head and beginnings of the upper bow; the rest of the brooch has been lost to old damage. The head is formed of a chunky cylinder seemingly with closed ends. Each end is perforated for the iron axis bar, now corroded. At its centre the head of the pin survives as a vestige within the pin slot. The tips of the wings are decorated with a double ridge. The bow emerges at an immediate forty-five degree angle. Beyond this is a further bend, but not as sharp. With this second b…

A corroded fragment from a cast copper-alloy Roman bow brooch. The lower half of the brooch survives, from a central acanthus button downwards. The acanthus button has the conventional form of a transverse ridge with triple knop above and below. The is conventional on Trumpet brooches (cf. Hattatt 2000, 326; fig. 185), although it can also appear on T-shape brooches, for example a 'Wilsford' type illustrated in Hattatt (2000, 302; ref. 914). Below the button the leg has a low triangular cross-section, with a flat lower surface. It tapers gradually towards the foot. On the lower surfac…

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 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 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…
