Roman leaded copper alloy penannular brooch of Fowler's (1960) Type B (or 'omega' / Iberian type) and of sub-type B3, probably of c. mid-1st to early-2nd century AD date The brooch is complete with frame and pin, although it is possible that the pin is secondary (with a width of 42.0mm, a frame height of 39.9mm and a weight of 17.1g).

Probably a Roman Copper alloy bow brooch of Crossbow type and of 3rd to 4th century date The brooch is fragmentary, represented by the crossbow and top of the bow only (with a surviving overall length of 20.4mm and a weight of 14.3g).

The slot would have accommodated a hinged pin. The crossbar is distorted (with a length of 52.2mm) and has circular sectioned arms (with a maximum diameter of 6.2mm and a minimum dia…
