Incomplete copper-alloy brooch, of Rosette type (leontomorphe or lion bow sub-group). Upper part only, missing pin. The spring is enclosed in an undecorated cylindrical spring case, curved around the spring. The upper bow is a very stylised lion shape, terminating in two very angular 'paws', and with a rectangular rivet projecting behind which would have held the plate and lower bow. There are angled lines on the back of the head representing the mane. Width 19 mm, surviving length 19 mm. Similar to Hacheston no. 56, but this lacks the mane decoration. Similar to Hattatt no. 281.

Large and particularly beautiful La Téne I type brooch, complete except for pin and part of spring. Two (left) coils of the spring survive, originally wrapped around an iron axis bar which now only survives as corrosion. The presence of a separate axis bar hints that the brooch may originally have been of the 'mock-spring' type (see Hattatt 1987, no. 724) but as the head is incomplete this is uncertain. The use of iron is unusual. The bow arches upwards and swells to a section 5.5 mm wide by 3.5 mm thick. It is decorated with a broad longitudinal groove with small transverse nic…

Knotenfibel, complete except for part of the catchplate, part of the spring and the pin. The name Knotenfibel has no good English equivalent; it refers to a Late Iron Age one-piece brooch with a moulding on the bow derived from the returned foot of a La Tene II brooch. This example has two coils surviving of a large spring; the diameter of the wire making up the coils is 2 mm and the coils themselves are 10 mm in external diameter. Other Knotenfibeln with complete springs (e.g. Elmswell, Suffolk, sf281/3599) have two coils to either side of the pin. The break in the spring is old. …

Fragmentary copper-alloy object which may be a La Tene III brooch. It consists of a thin sub-rectangular sheet, one end rounded and the other end more rectilinear, which has a gentle longitudinal curve and some more recent bends. At the more rectilinear end is a extension ending in a point. The underside of this extension expands to an incurved end. This may represent a catchplate, making the object a very worn and incomplete La Tene III brooch, with a rectilinear plate similar to Hattatt no. 242. The plate has no surviving decoration, but as it is extremely worn and corroded this…

Catchplate and terminal from a La Tene I brooch. The bow is broken off just as it begins to rise from the catchplate; the break is old. The terminal then turns at a slightly sharper than 90 degree angle, passing through a rounded knob before ending in a second similar knob with a depression, perhaps once enamelled, on its end. The dimensions are small; the catchplate is 14 mm long, the circular-section terminal measures just3 mm in diameter between the knobs, and the knobs are oval in section, 6 x 7 mm for the lower one and 7 x 8 mm for the upper.

The bow is a 'leech' style bow, i.e. the bow is sub-oval in section and is 'C' shaped in profile. The bow tapers to a worn point at the top. Presumably this terminal was an old break and has since worn and formed the same patina which occurs all over the object. The terminal curls upwards slightly. The bow is decorated with two parallel vertical grooves, however, these are difficult to see. The lower terminal of the bow narrows slightly and travels downwards forming a vertical line. This vertical section flares on one side, forming a portion of the catchplate. Along the vertical edge …

The springs consists of three complete coils and one broken coil, which presumably would have formed the pin had it been complete. The spring also forms a horizontal bar below the spring. The spring leads from the bow head, and cast as one piece. The bow head is where the bow tapers becoming the spring. The bow head and bow is sub-semi-circular in section and undecorated. The bow tapers and is incomplete as there is no visibility of the catchplate. The break is not recent and has the same light green patina as the rest of the brooch.

The wings are sub-rectangular in plan. Protruding from the central edge of the wings and bow head is an integral fragment of wire which is folded back over the bow head forming a small hook. Protruding from the reverse of the wings, in the centre below the hook there is a second more narrow short length of wire which is curved forming a 'C' shape. This second protrusion is a fragment of the spring. The bow head is slightly hump-like leading to a curved and incomplete bow. The bow is broken above the catchplate. The bow is narrow and sub-oval in cross-section. The brooch has lost its or…

An incomplete Late Iron Age to early Roman Nauheim derivative brooch dating to the 1st century AD. The one-piece copper-alloy brooch has a sub-rectangular bow which tapers at each end. The bow is decorated with a series of punch marks in two lines close to the edges. The integral wire which formed the spring extends from the tapered edge and is now opened out and slightly flattened. The wire is coiled and then forms the pin, which is bent. The catchplate is formed from the end of the tapered point at the foot and becomes wider and is twisted to secure the pin.

Fragment of a bow brooch consisting of the lower part of a flat narrow tapering bow, slightly curved in profile, embellished with a shallow channel adjacent to each edge. Part of small catch-plate survives. Surviving length 36mm, surviving maximum width 6.5mm, weight 1.5 grams. The simple form of the flat bow and small catch-plate suggest that this was probably part of a Strip Bow brooch. Strip Bow brooches are a British hinged type, derived from the Aucissa and Hod Hill types, which date to the mid first century AD (Hattatt 1985, 68). Most examples of the type are manufactured from c…
