Object type: BROOCH

Incomplete cast copper alloy Roman Dolphin-type hinged brooch with pairs of leaf-like mouldings down each side of the bow. The pin is missing but the iron hinge remains at the centre of the back of the wide cross-bar, and the iron spindle within the tubular wings. The cross-bar is pitted and corroded but some of the decoration can still be seen in the form of three sets of incised circumferential rings alternating with raised bands on each side of the head. There are two incised lines, either side of a moulded zig-zag line, running centrally down the length of the bow from the top of t…

Cast copper-alloy Roman T-shaped hinged brooch, with the iron spindle held inside the tubular wings, visible from a break in the underside of one of the wings. The hinge is no longer in the notch behind the head of the brooch, which extends to a rectangular recess behind the bow, but this hollow back is filled with iron oxide suggesting that the missing pin was also made of iron. The wings have bulbous terminals defined by a moulded circumferential groove which is more visible on one side. The bow is triangular in plan, slightly expanded towards the wings, and narrowing down towards th…

An incomplete post Medieval copper alloy buckle dating to c. 1690-1720. The buckle is sub-rectangular in shape with an angled frame with rounded corners outside edge. The outside edges are slightly lobed. The strap bar and pin are missing. At the top of the outside edge where the bar would have been attached there are remains of an iron pin or bar.
