A complete cast copper-alloy Picardy type pin dating to the 'Ornament Horizon' (late Taunton/early Penard metalworking phases) of the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1400-1250 BC. The pin demonstrates a cup-shaped head with a deep recess in its upper edge designed to accomodate an insert (now missing), while the sides of the head towards its lower edge are decorated with two transverse collars and a repeating 'nicked' design at its base. Underneath the head, the circular-sectioned neck of the pin narrows abruptly before swelling prominently and then tapering steadily along its length to a sharp-…

A complete cast copper-alloy quoit-headed pin dating to the Middle Bronze Age, c. 1500-1200 BC. The pin consists of a flat circular head with a large central aperture, demonstrating small decorative incisions or notches radiating from its inner edge. The bottom of the head transitions into a circular-sectioned shank, which extends downwards and eventually tapers to a sharp point, initially curving outwards but then returning back on itself as a result of post-depositional distortion. Preserved in very good condition with an even greenish and brown patina, the pin measures 82.70mm long…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete cast copper-alloy pin head of probable Roman or Middle Anglo-Saxon date. It is solid, biconical in form with the remains of a slight collare at the base of the head. From the collar extends a thin, integrally cast shaft that is circular in section and terminates in old breaks just below the head. The pin measures 20.85mm in length, 8.30mm in diameter, and weighs 1.76g in weight. Cast copper-alloy pin heads of this type were utilised in the Roman and later periods, particularly during the Middle Anglo-Saxon period. It is possible, therefore, that this example does date as…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy object, probably the shaft from a pin, a spoon handle, cosmetic implement or similar object of Roman date. It is formed from a flat sheet of copper-alloy that has been rolled to create a tube that tapers towards one end. A seam is visible along one side, which has been reworked in order to hide or disguise the seam. The object terminates at both ends in old breaks making identification of its original form or function impossible. It has a dark green patina with some pitting in places and measures 50.33mm in length, 3.56mm in diameter, and 1.69g in weigh…

Small silver pin with polyhedral head, missing most of its shaft. The head is a rough cube, measuring 4.8mm square at the top; it is 4.2mm tall and there is no collar between the base of the head and the top of the shaft. The corners of the cube have been cut off, leaving tiny triangular facets. All the faces are undecorated.

A silver gilt pin head of early post-medieval date, probably 16th century. It is decorated with filigree with a band around the widest part dividing it in two.

Below the band there are two filigree circles, one on each side of the pin head. Each of these contains four smaller equal filigree circles arranged in a square with a central pellet, one of which is missing. Between these two larger circles are furt…
