2nd century Romano-British disc brooch with Celtic-inspired triskele design (comp. Hattatt 2000, no. 120, p. 344). It was made from cast cu-alloy and decorated with dark blue and white(?) enamel. Part of the spring coil and the catch plate are still in place, but the pin is missing. It is possible that both spring coil and pin were made from iron (as dark red corrosion suggests). The obverse of the brooch is decorated with triskele motif that was filled in with dark blue enamel. If the spaces between the three arms of the triskele were, too, filled with enamel, there is almost no more…

Copper-alloy, Roman headstud brooch, possibly 3rd century, although heavily corroded. The headstud is pirform shape and integrally cast, and the wings and neckband would have supported a head loop which is recently broken. The brooch would have had a hing pin at the back which has been lost. It has a well arched flat faced bow of heavy construction which tapers towards the catch plate which is missing. The foot of the brooch is rounded at the end, although because it is heavily corroded and most of the foot is missing it is difficult to be sure. There is incised ribbed decoration aroun…

Early Roman cast copper-alloy zoomorphic Dragonesque brooch, incomplete as the tail is missing and also the pin. A crudely made example with angular edges, unlike most others this has a reversed 'S' shape. The reverse is flat with many parallel scratch marks which probably derive from the movement of the pin. The obverse is decorated with a 'Celtic-style' moulded decoration and there are circles in relief on each 'dragon's head', mimicking an eye and a smaller nostril. Although this is probably a type of Dragonesque brooch that did not carry any enamel in the grooves and spaces, it is…

Cast copper-alloy Headstud brooch, Hattatt No. 35: Hinged pin type with bronze axis bar but without the for this brooch type typical chain loop. "It does not have any enamel decoration, unless the stud originally held some. The wings are step grooved in the usual Headstud manner", but without the knurling on alternative ribs. The round foot knob is undecorated "It is plain underneath. The stud has a frontal kick and the face of the bow is shaped to a smooth rounded channel from stud to foot. A fairly plain Headstud brooch, but nicely worked. Probably second half of the second century AD.

Cast copper-alloy Roman Trumpet brooch, complete except for the pin. The pin was part of a hinge mechanism and there is no spring coil underneath the plain trumpet-shaped head. The small head stud is plain and the large, heavy bow is decorated with the for this brooch type typical alternating petal/reel mouldings. Furthermore, it seems that at some point, after the foot had broken off it was replaced/repaired with a small metal sheet (probably bronze) which was attached to the remainder of the original foot with two very small rivets which are fragmentary today. Nina Crummy adds: "Trum…

Cast copper alloy Headstud type bow brooch dating from c.70 through to the late 2nd century. The brooch is mostly complete although the catchplate and pin are missing and the headloop has broken off. It is a hinged type and the top of the pin is still present. The wings are broken at the ends but would have had square ends. They have moulded steps from the centre to the end. There is a circular boss at the top of the bow. Below this the decoration starts and goes all the way to the foot. This consists of lozenge shaped hollows in which enamel would have been. All the enamel is now…

Cast cu-alloy trumpet brooch dating from the early Roman period, i.e. c. AD75-175. Only the main part of the bow and the head remain; spring, pin rest and pin are missing. The surface of the brooch is very corroded, but the moulded reel-and-acanthus decoration is still visible. The brooch, however, did not bear any enamelled decoration like some of the more elaborate examples do.
