A copper alloy Roman fibular brooch which is 35.4mm long, 21.1mm wide and 15.3mm thick. The brooch has a simple tapering bow which appears not to be decorated though it is chipped in places.

A copper alloy Roman bow brooch. The brooch is 35.3mm long, 11.7mm wide and 20.3mm deep. It was probably a trumpet brooch, but it is damaged, possibly by fire causing melting, and the type of brooch is no longer clear. The pin and mechanism are missing but traces of the catchplate survive. The foot is tilted forwards. There are bumps in the middle of the bow which may be the remains of an acanthus button. The probably mouth of the trumpet is deeply pitted and distorted. Traces of a red material survive, particularly near the foot and on the side of the bow. It is not clear whether this…

The tinning covers the whole front surface and extends onto the rim of the hollow cast back. The form of the dog is well-observed and slightly stylised with an enlarged single eye on the head and a curved body resting on muscular haunches. The legs are long and sle…

A circular, copper-alloy disc brooch, c. 100 - 200AD. The face of the brooch is decorated with a central circle surrounded by a six-pointed star constructed from concave tressures joined at their ends with additional discs identical in size to that in the centre of the brooch. Traces of red enamel remain within the star. There are also traces of enamel of a different colour in two of the tressures. This has developed a surface glaze, but chemical action in the soil has rendered the original colour unrecognizable. The catch plate remains on the back of the brooch, but the pin is missin…

A copper alloy Roman brooch, a Dolphin type dating from 55 - 100 AD with distinctive notches across the upper bow. The wings are tubular to hold the axis bar for the hinge pin which is missing apart from the very top. The humped bow is oval in section. It is decorated with a groove along each side, and tapers to a point at the foot. The upper bow has three wide notches across the bow.
