An incomplete lead alloy early medieval (Anglo-Saxon) brooch of uncertain form. The remaining fragment has a (now) sub-rectangular plate with a one raised lower end which may have arched into a bow, as the bend seems purposeful rather than the result of damage. The front of the brooch is decorated with a central raised, cone-shaped pellet and is surrounded by multiple small pellets arranged in three or four rows around the main pellet. On the reverse of the brooch are two raised triangular lugs, probably the lugs for a hinged pin. Parallels have been difficult to come by - The decorati…

Lead alloy possible brooch. A small lightly concavo-convex plate, of probably originally discoid form, with a moulded design comprising a plain cross whose arms are rendered by quadruple strands, with a large central pellet and with a pellet and ring in each of its angles.

A fragment of a medieval (1250-1350) lead-alloy annular brooch consisting of a flat, lozenge-shaped boss with raised decoration in the form of four pointed-oval petals with central longitudinal rib arranged around a central pellet. The background appears to be raised cross-hatch and the edge of the lozenge is raised. To the reverse is a raised curved rib 1.5mm in width, all that now remains of the brooch frame. The object measures 17.6mm in length, 16.3mm in width, 3.1mm in thickness (exclusive of curving rib, 2.0mm thick) and weighs 1.63g. It is not possible to calculate the original …

Lead alloy brooch. Cast oval frame of thickness 1.2mm with a series of juxtaposed lugs set in pairs and projecting from a plain border. The lugs bear pelleted detail, and at least some represent flowers. On the back, each pair - there were possibly five in a cinquefoil arrangement - has a low central rib to reinforce it, and a pair of strips of ribbons of width 2.4mm and 2.7mm may have related to fastening of the object. The centre of the brooch is empty. This might have held a stone, or may have been viewed against a coloured backing. This appears typical of cheap jewellery of the 13…

An incomplete cast lead-alloy probable nummular brooch of Weetch's type 2A, dating c. 900-1100. The pin and fittings on the rear of the brooch are largely broken away in old damage, though the object otherwise survives in tact. The front of the object demonstrates moulded decoration in the form of a cross with a pellet centre, behind which are two uncertain objects with expanded ends in saltire. Faint cross-hatching is visible between the cross arms. The reverse face of the brooch demonstrates the broken fittings, though cross-hatched decoration and two mould lines are also visible. Pr…

Lead alloy disc brooch. Cast plate with five moulded bosses on its display face, each bordered by a low gutter, and probably forming part of a cross arrangement, possibly with the peripheral bosses in the angles of the cross. An outer border appears, possibly billeted. A thick folded lug on the back is probably a catch plate though there is no sign of a distinct pin seat; it at all events related to fastening. Patinated and lightly bent. This appears to be a later brooch, with a border possibly recalling Borre style ornamentation, and is an example of the cheaper brooches worn by the l…

Late medieval lead alloy or pewter brooch, probably of 13th to 15th century date The cast brooch is near-complete, missing the pin and part of the outside of the frame (with a length of 33.8mm, a width of 30.0mm and a weight of 4.1g). The openwork brooch frame has a sub-circular central opening (16.4mm wide and 14.8mm long) around an zoomorphic openwork frame of D-shaped section (2.4mm thick). The frame depicts an unusual scene that is difficult to interpret. Both sides comprise a standing beast, probably lions or dogs with the tails looped upwards and returning at the shoulders. The t…

Lead alloy cast model possibly representing the head and bow of a 'T' shaped or Dolphin Roman brooch at 1:1 scale. As presented, the object lacks mechanical strength and, in this case, a hinged pin or spring to permit the brooch to operate is also absent, along with the catch plate; the top of the bow ending on a plain slightly curved edge. The length is 63mm, the width is 25mm thickness 11mm. First, this may be a trial piece or model of Roman date, or possibly a symbolic replacement for a brooch. The latter is occasionally encountered, though mainly in post-Roman (Anglo-Saxon) buria…

A worn and incomplete lead alloy brooch shaped like a lizard, salamander or otter of uncertain date. It is possibly a version of the salamander brooches popular during the 19th century. The lizard has a sinous body and tail; the full length of the tail is uncertain due to damage. All the legs are missing except the rear left which is damaged. The body is flat on the top and bottom with patterning on both sides. The surface of the lizard is highly worn and pitted and dark grey in colour with areas of buff coloured encrustation. There are two small circular pits on the reverse that may…

An incomplete lead alloy brooch of Weetch type 13 and late early-medieval or early medieval date. It is unusual in that the flat-topped boss is decorated only with a single central pellet. The flattened outer rim of the brooch is decorated with two circumferential bands of raised pellets and a single solid linear band below the boss. The boss is hollow on the reverse of the brooch, which retains the catchplate and a single pierced lug for a pin; both of these seem (from the photo) to be parallel to the edge of the brooch. Weetch Type 13 brooches date from the 11th century.

An incomplete lead alloy brooch or badge of probable medieval date. The brooch is decorated on the upper face with a King's head, crowned with hair and beard, within a circle of beads. Surrounding the circlet is a series of roundals each with a pellet in the centre, the whole arranged in a circle. On the underside are the remains of catch and bent pin. Although no direct comparisons could be found in the available literature, the style of the king's head is similar to others of medival date. Suggested date c. AD 1200-1600.

On the rear of the leg, a central ridge runs down from the horizontal moulded ridges, this is probably t…

Fragment of a very simple lead-ally crossbow brooch, probably dating from the Roman period, that is c. AD175-250. Only part of the bow and the head survive. There is no spring or a pin. The bow was roughly triangular in corss-section and it has the typical onion-shaped knops/terminals at the head and on either side of the arms of the cross bar. This is a very unusual find and if dating from the Roman period it could be interpreted as a pattern for making moulds for casting simple crossbow brooches.

Lead alloy possible brooch. Hollow cast model apparently representing the head and bow of an Early Roman bow brooch at 1:1 scale. The types intended might include versions of a hinged Colchester Derivative brooch (e.g. Mackreth type CD H 10.e.) with an especially wide and fluted crest to its bow. The fluted bow also recalls the Langton down brooches. An axis bar appears to protrude from the ends of a widened fluted head whose decoration is continuous with that of a bow of hollow D section. As presented, the object lacks mechanical strength and, in this case, a hinged pin or spring to …

An incomplete lead alloy early medieval (Anglo-Saxon) nummular (coin-like) brooch. It is disc-shaped and the design on the outer face imitates contemporary coinage. To the reverse there is the remains of a double lug pin fitting to one side and a small catch-plate remains intact at the other end. The outer face is decorated with a central voided cross formed from two pairs of crossed lines, surrounded by an inner circle and then a garbled legend of alternating raised crosses and letters. Only the letters '+C+I+C+[...]' can be read. It survives in fair condition, but there is some damag…

A fragment of a lead alloy medieval annular brooch, AD. 1300-1500. The fragment is just under half the circumference of the brooch, and has a stepped flange running around the exterior. There are four projecting knops that are hollowed out, one of which is filled with a white paste, possibly an enamel. Between the two central knops is a perforation with a small ring suspended through it, this is likely all that remains of the Brooch pin. There are incised dots between the other knops on the upper surface of the brooch, six dots between each. The rear surface of the brooch is plain and…

Late Early Medieval lead alloy disc brooch of Weetch's type 4.B, 19mm in diameter, 5mm thick and weighing 5.35grams. The brooch has four raised 'petal' like motifs arranged in a quatrefoil.
