The object is a brooch of Colchester derivative Polden Hill (flat wing ends type, Pattern). Usually these types of brooches date to the 1st to 2nd century, when they are made from copper alloy. However, this brooch is made from lead or lead alloy, and was made as the first stage to manufacturing brooches. The wings are semi-cylindrical with wing caps. The wings are now misshapen and slightly crumpled, This damage does not look too recent. The wing caps do not have the central hole, like their copper alloy comparisons. These holes would have held in place an axis bar. Also missing i…

A possible incomplete cast lead alloy or lead pattern for the manufacture of a two part Colchester derivative brooch. The brooch pattern has wings which on the reverse have an off-set surface, and are not cylindrical as perhaps may have been expected. In the centre of the reverse of the wings there is a slightly high-relief oval platform where normally this is the deepest area of the cylindrical wings of a brooch such as a Polden Hill brooch, The upper edge of the wings is slightly angular and the wing terminals are asymmetrical. The bow head, in profile is slightly hump-like and is s…

Lead fragment, probably from a Roman bow brooch (c. 43 - 300 AD). The fragment is from the head of the brooch, comprising two tubular wings from which the bow (oval in section) curves out and down.

Lead-alloy/pewter 'nummular' brooch. It consists of a flat circular plate 1.5mm thick, with a beaded outer border which encloses a design imitating a coin. This consists of a concentric legend enclosed by a second inner beaded border, and a centrally located cross. The legend is highly simplified and nonsensical, with individual letters being replaced by strokes. The reverse retains the attachment mechanism, consisting of a damaged pin lug and a sub-rectangular catchplate with a central perforation. Pewter disc brooches with beaded borders are fairly common in the Late Anglo-Saxon per…

Apparently a lead model for a brooch, which would have been circular and slightly domed. Some of the edges now appear to have been cut off straight, and the maximum surviving diameter is 21 mm. There is no decoration on the convex upper face. The reverse is flat, not hollowed, and has a surviving curled-over lug which looks like a catchplate. No pin lug survives. Perhaps a trial piece or a model which would have been used in the manufacturing process; similar to the small Anglo-Scandinavian domed disc brooches of the tenth century AD.

Lead pseudo-coin brooch based on the Aethelred II last small cross type (minted 1009-1017). Circular and 26 mm in diameter, it is now bent around the edges. In the centre is a small relief cross made from four distinct wedges; around this is a plain relief circle, then the legend within an outer border of pellets. The legend reads + T M A O P P - - - N A O (the T may be a second cross; the P shapes are reversed; part of the legend is missing). The legend may be derived from + MA [NIE ON NOR] HA (Manna of Norwich, the moneyer) but it is too blundered to be certain. On the reverse is an…
