An incomplete cast copper-alloy fragment originating from a bow brooch of Roman date, probably c. 43-125 AD. The fragment consists the lower bow, foot and catchplate only-the rest of the object missing in an old break. The bow itself is decorated with three raised vertical ribs, but is otherwise plain. The catchplate is triangular in plan and flattened, its back edge curved to accommodate the pin. Preserved in rather poor condition, it survives to a length of 24.21mm, 4.07mm wide at the midpoint of the bow by 9.11mm thick between the bow and catchplate. It weighs 2.11g. Due to its frag…

A complete cast copper-alloy La Tene I bow brooch of Adams type 1b dating to the Early Iron Age, c. 450-300 BC.

It demonstrates a four-coiled spring, the outer coils arching in a semicircle above the head before plunging to form the pin. The head expands into a broadly oval shaped body demonstrating raised decoration in the form of an inner hollow lenticular moulding. At the base of the body, the lower bow quickly tapers before flattening into an 'L' shaped forward-facing c…
