Incomplete copper alloy two-piece Colchester derivative (Dolphin style) brooch of Roman date (43-150AD). The wings are incomplete, only the left hand wing survives. However it is likely that they were both semi-cylindrical with perforated wing / end caps. The wing caps are incomplete and the axis bar, spring, and pin are not present. It is likely that the spring was attached by an external chord to a rearward facing hook. This hook is located at the centre of the wings on the upper edge but is incomplete due to abrasion in the ploughsoil. There is a large sub-oval concave depression in…
