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 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…

Object type: BRACELET
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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…

Record ID: SOM-98D2D4
Object type: BRACELET
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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…
