An incomplete, copper alloy zoomorphic brooch , dating to the Roman period (100-200 AD).

The neck has a central ridge running along the back, from which diagonally incised lines radiate, possibly suggesting feathers. Two incised lines…

Early Medieval copper alloy bow brooch fragment, 45mm long, 35mm wide and 4mm thick. The brooch is in fair condition and weighs 24.37grams. The surface patina is odd with green, brown and sooty corrosion, perhaps suggesting the object has been exposed to fire?

It is decorated with a raised rectangular triple border which contains raised decoration which could represent a face? The curved bow is also decorated with raised l…
