A complete copper-alloy Roman plate brooch of c. 2nd century AD date. The brooch is broadly circular, though slightly angular, with sides that tend towards being straight between four lobed knops located one at each cardinal point. The brooch is decorated with three concentric circular grooves, divided by circles of the same height as the circumference. Probable traces of enamel are apparent within the grooves, as with the lobed knops which are each recessed, but not enough survives to be able to reconstruct a colour scheme. Two of the knops have been abraded through externally. …

A Roman copper-alloy Colchester derivative Polden Hill (flat wing ends type, Western Group) brooch (later 1st to mid-/late-2nd century AD). The brooch survives well, only having suffered some post-depositional damage and the loss of its pin. The head has curved wings with flat perforated end plates; one perforation has been broken through. The axis bar is missing although traces of corrosion product on the underside of the wings suggests that it might have been made of iron. There is a double transversely incised line at each terminal, with a groove beyond, followed by a second pair o…

A Roman copper-alloy Colchester derivative brooch with a double pierced lug spring attachment, incomplete in so far as it is missing part of its spring mechanism and pin, dating to the 1st centuryAD. The double pierced lug is situated behind the head as is characteristic of this type, with a cusping at the front between the perforated lobes. The sprung pin is missing, as is half of the chord and coils. The side of coils that survives has six twists. The chord is retained within a lug, as noted. The lug is narrowed compared to the head and features a decorative transverse groove above …

A fragmentary cast copper alloy T-shaped brooch of early Roman date. Present is part of the head and upper bow; the rest of the head, pin, lower bow, including leg and catch-plate, are missing. The head was formed of cylindrical wings with a slot that is slightly off centre; one of the wings has been lost beyond the head. Retained in the extant wing is the remnant of the copper-alloy axis bar for the former hinged pin, viewable within the slot. The surviving wing is decorated with a pair of transverse lines at the end on the upper surface. An integral headloop protrudes from the centr…

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…

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. The head is formed of cylindrical wings with a central slot. The wings contain the copper-alloy axis bar for the hinged pin, viewable within the slot. The head of the copper-alloy pin, with spur, is still in the slot; only the beginnings of the rest of the pin survives in addition, bent to one side. Both wings are decorated with a trio of lines at the end on the upper surface. There is no evidence for a tab…

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…

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 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…

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 …
