A copper alloy quoit-headed pin of Middle Bronze Age date. It is undecorated and has a crinkly gold-coloured surface but is clearly made of copper alloy that has been in anerobic conditions which have preserved the colour. There are patches of green corrosion products so possibly the plough has pulled the pin out of the original deposition site. The flat loop of the head has slightly rounded edges and is circular, 30.15 in diameter, with a central circular, perforation, 23mm in diameter. This has been slightly bent probably after burial as has the shaft. The shaft itself is a flat…
