Copper alloy prick spur, as kindly identified by Rob Webley, who comments: 'This looks like a Roman prick spur - there should be some in the online FRG on spurs..'.

A triangular spike projects at right angles to the strip, perhaps at its midpoint and perhaps as one of an opposed pair; the strip is broken at its other end. A rivet of diameter 3mm passes through the putative centre, and a flat patch of rust on the back here indicates that the mount was set flush with a curved surface to which it was …

Copper alloy brooch. Cast Colchester brooch, cf. Mackreth type C Odd 1. The bow is expanded to a solid Y-shape with turned-up ends at the top, with an integrally cast backward pointing hook projecting from it, and a forward pointing loop on top, which is anchored at its outer end by a rivet of diameter 1mm.

This is set over the crest of a slight central longitudinal ridge which passes down the middle of the bow. The bow is of a f…

There are traces of a rib running lengthways down the centre of the front plate, although this is almost flat either through wear or manufacture, and is marked out by faintly incised lines on either side of it. The attachment end terminates in a worn irregular…
