An incomplete copper alloy trumpet brooch of Hull Type 157C dating to the Roman period (c. 75-175 AD). The brooch is very similar to Hattatt (1989, p. 327, Fig. 186, no. 1528). The head expands outward in a typical 'trumpet-like' form with a broadly D-shaped cross-section. The bow of the brooch tapers towards a circular foot. At the rear of the head is the top of a pierced lug through which the spring would have passed holding it in place. The spring, pin and catchplate are missing. The head of the brooch is decorated with inlaid enamel. There are two semi-circular cells containing blu…

Complete early medieval decorated lead-alloy sword pommel of the 'cocked hat' type (c. 500 - 700 AD). The pommel has a shallow depression to the base which is partly filled with organic detriment due to the context of its deposition.

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A cast disc with a hole of diameter 2.2mm drilled near its edge. The display face bears moulded decoration in low relief comprising a plain cross with a combination of curls and protruding elements resembling a lis in each of its angles; the eye-like form of the curls making up these motifs suggests an Early Medieval date; this may be comparable with the motifs used to decorate Late Saxon enamelled disc brooches, though no colorant appears here. Just under half the disc is lost. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-1000. Diameter: 25mm, Thickn…

Small copper-alloy flat circular disk with a central aperture, date unknown. The back of this object is completely smooth while the front exhibits a decorative circular indent running around the central hole. The edges of the object are uneven.

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper-alloy head of a linch pin, probably Iron Age (c. 800 BC - 42 AD). The linch pin is damaged and consists of a small flat round head with milled edges on a narrow neck which widens abruptly into a wider shaft headed by a wide ridge. Half of this shaft has been unevenly broken off, revealing an iron pin running vertically through the centre of the shaft. This would have connected the head with a foot (missing, as the head is broken off at this point), which together would have held a wheel to a fixed axle. There is a small perforation on one side of the pin, on the ridge just above…

Roman Trumpet brooch, c. 75 - 175 AD.
