County: Wiltshire

A pair of copper-alloy tweezers possibly Roman in date, although a medieval date cannot be ruled out entirely. The tweezers are formed from a single piece of copper alloy, rectangular in cross-section. This has been folded over on itself at a defined loop to form a sprung end; the sides abut each other below the loop. They arms flare gradually along their length (4.1mm at the loop to 12.5mm at the tip) towards the tip. The arms are thinned at the gripping ends to create the nibs, both angled in at right angles. The metal has a dark-green patina which generally survives well.

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 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…
