A fragment from the head and upper bow of a Roman copper-alloy bow brooch, possibly a Trumpet derivative. At the head is an abraded plate on the lower surface of which is a double semicircular pin lug. This latter has been perforated centrally to take an axis bar which was made of iron given the corrosion product around the lug. In places the plate has been broken right down to the lug; presumably it was once semicircular. The pin is missing. The bow springs from the base of the head-plate and curves through ninety degrees such that it is parallel to the head-plate. The bow is …

The fantail foot of a Roman bow brooch, probably a bow-and-fantail type or Aesica varient (1st/2nd century AD). The brooch has broken at a central circular 'button'. This would have been raised up; the upwards angle as the button connects to the foot seems an original feature and suggests the bow above was also raised. A central setting may have been housed within a double concentric ring moulding that forms the button or this may have been the point from which the bow projected up and out. The foot below is broadly triangular with slightly projecting ring settings at each lower corne…

The body is corroded and pitted; it is pitting that seems visible rather than recesses for enamel found on similar brooches. The lower surface features a broken and abraded double pin lug at the centre of the rabbit's rear, and a a…

A Roman copper-alloy lower part of the bow and catch-plate of a brooch. The upper part of the bow, the head of the brooch and pin are missing due to an old patinated break. In cross-section, the bow is rectangular with rounded corners; it generally has flat upper and lower surfaces. The bow is elongated trapezoidal and tapers gradually from the point of the break (W.: 5.9mm) to a width of 3.5mm at the foot. The foot is simply squared off and decorated with two transversely incised grooves; the leg above is plain. On the lower surface the solid catch-plate survives well. It is broa…

Medieval or post-medieval plain cast copper-alloy double-loop buckle frame. The frame has two oval loops with bevelled outer and inner sides on the front; the back appears flat. The strap bar is narrowed with a triangular cross-section. The pin is missing but dark orange corrosion product at the pin bar shows that it would have been of iron. It is 24.9mm long, 20.3mm wide and 2.2mm thick, it weighs 3.0 grams. It is likely that simple forms like this were in use by c.1350 (Egan and Pritchard 1993:22, 82-3, cf no.332), and they continued into the 17th century.

A broken and incomplete medieval cast copper-alloy buckle frame missing its plate, pin and much of its frame. The frame was oval before old breaks halfway along one side and just before the outer edge respectively. The outer edge is offset and recessed in the centre to take a sheet roller with central low groove which survives in place. The outer edge has large rounded knops flanking the recessed centre. Egan (2007, 86) suggests that this type (Meols Type 11) dates to the medieval period (c. AD 1250-1400).
