Object type: PLATE BROOCH
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a copper-alloy and enamel inlaid Roman plate brooch of zoomorphic design. Dating from c. AD 50 - 300. The brooch face is flat and takes the form of a hare or hound leaping to the right. The rear portion of the brooch is missing, as are the ears and front feet of the animal, making it particularly difficult to say whether it is a hare or hound. The snub nose however, would suggest that the animal is more likely to be a hare. The body of the animal is inlaid with decorative red enamel in a series of four slanting lines facing back toward the rear. The back of the animal is …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Worked flint of deep brown/beige colour. There is working around most edges of the flake. When viewed from the ventral face, there is an extremely prominent bulb 'ripple' pattern, suggesting a forceful flake removal. The entire edge of the flake has been 'backed' or retouched by steep sided removals which blunt the edge of the flake. This backing is extremely prominent on the lower right edge when viewed from the ventral face where removals have completely blunted and thickened the edge resulting in a 9.5mm thick edge. The striking platform has also been worked with invasive scaled r…
