Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Oxfordshire

An incomplete cast copper-alloy Nauheim derivative brooch dating to the Late Iron Age / early Roman period. The brooch is almost complete, missing only part of the pin. The bow is long and thin and narrows in to the foot, with the central part of the bow being decorated with a double-lined chevron of punched squares, a common method of decoration for this type of brooch. The catchplate on the reverse is triangular. These brooches are sometimes called 'Lowbury' brooches and are associated with the Artebates tribe and the lands around Silchester in Hampshire. They date from c. AD 43-80.

An incomplete cast copper alloy Nauheim derivative brooch dating from the Late Iron Age /early Roman period. The brooch is missing three of the four coils and the pin is also absent.
