A bent hook-piece from a copper-alloy post-medieval book-clasp. It is sub-rectangular in shape, with a slightly flared attachment end; the other end is squared off with a central rectangular curved hook. At the flared end is a single central rivet hole; the head of a copper-alloy rivet is corroded in place. A second corroded rivet head is located around two thirds of the way along the clasp. On the upper surface possible curvilinear decoration can possibly be discerned below the hook. Anything beyond is obscured by corrosion product; there is a circular discolouration around the ri…

A twisted fragment consisting of approximately a quarter of a cast copper-alloy bracelet or armlet of late Roman date (c. 4th century AD). The fragment consists of the bracelet's terminal, the hook end, with abraded hook extant. The bracelet is rectangular with rounded corners in cross-section. In profile it has been twisted to one side, then round on itself such that it abuts the side of the hooked end at right angles to it. The bracelet expands in width gradually from the hook end. It is decorated unifacially using multiple motifs. What survives on this example is a raised lozenge w…

Object type: BRIQUETAGE
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of briquetage of Roman date. The briquetage, coarse ceramic material, is irregular in shape with only one surviving original flat surface. This latter is more oxidised than the core and bears imprints possibly of organic material. Briquetage is the name for coarse fired ceramic objects, evaporating vessels and supporting pillars, used in the production of salt. There is a known saltworks at East Huntspill and therefore unsurprising that this fragment was found here. The ceramic supporting pillar is not closely datable but salt working is known in this area from the…

A fragment from the head and upper bow of a Roman copper-alloy initial T-shaped brooch. Between the wings is a slot on the lower surface for a hinged pin, below which a sub oval recess. Aligned with the slot on the upper surface is a longitudinal ridge which is given a ridged, or serrated, quality by numerous transverse nicks. Just before an old transverse break two lower, finer ridges begin to flank the central one. At the head end another old break has removed any lateral elements from the wings, or any of the head located above. The fragment curves in profile in a regular fas…

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 …

Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An Iron Age La Tène IBa type brooch dating to the 4th to 3rd centuries BC, incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin. The brooch comprises a sprung head, a curved bow and foot with catch-plate. The brooch has been made in one piece. The head is formed from the top of the bow, which becomes thinner and circular in section forming a thick wire. This coils twice to the left of the bow (when in plan), loops over the top of the head and coils twice towards the centre. At this point the wire has broken, but would have formed the pin. Within the coils is a corroded crude bar in copper a…

A copper alloy T-shaped brooch of early Roman date. This Wilsford type brooch is incomplete in as much as it is missing its pin. The cylindrical wings conceal the copper-alloy axis bar for the hinged pin. Their upper surfaces are decorated with two incised lines at each end. The head of the pin has a pointed projection for tensioning, but this is all that survives of the pin (loose). The bow has a D-shaped cross-section and projects forward from the wings. The upper bow has moulded decoration in the form of four ridges with central grooves either side of a central recessed rib. Its l…

Upper part of the bow and head of a Late Iron Age cast copper alloy birdlip type brooch. The lower part of the bow, pin, foot and catchplate are missing. It the top of the remaining section the bow is oval with a concave back. This probably formed the trumpet shaped head with a spring held in the concave section, although the attachment is lost. The edges of this oval head are damaged, particularly around the lower edges and it may have been larger originally. From this oval top the bow rises at 90 degrees before bending over abruptly and running relatively straight to the foot. In…

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…
