Flat circular brooch, 23.5 mm in diameter, decorated with a relief animal with its head turned to look backwards. The animal is now rather worn and blurred but has four legs, a tail and a long neck ending in a head with an enormous ring-and-dot eye. There is a raised border with transverse nicks. On the reverse is a double pin bar lug, with remains of the iron pin bar and iron spring, and a transverse lug with hole and slot forming a catchplate. A similar backward-looking animal brooch found in an early 10th-century context in 16-22 Coppergate, York, gives the best archaeological date…

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.

Fragment of headplate from a fairly small example of a great square-headed brooch, neatly made of copper alloy but with no gilding or silvering, and now with a nice dark greyish-green patina. In the centre (to judge from the placing of the single pin bar lug on the reverse) is a sunken rectangular panel with a counter-relief double spiral, shaped like an S on its side. In the sunken field around the S is some white material. There is a raised border around the sunken field, decorated with double-crescent stamps. Below and to the right of this border (as you look at it) are fairly f…

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…

Copper alloy penannular brooch fragment. Half of the ring, missing pin, fairly corroded. Circular section ring, diam. 3 mm, with closely set transverse grooves on the outer face, undecorated (grooves worn away?) at the back. The terminal is slightly expanded, flattened and almost rectangular with a lozengiform moulding on the outer face and another V-shaped moulding joining the terminal to the rest of the frame. This is a highly devolved zoomorphic form, as Fowler type E and Hattatt no 656. Current (limited) chronological data suggests this type was a late Roman contemporary of the c…

Roman copper-alloy brooch, possibly a variant of the Aesica type. Missing pin, spring, damaged catchplate, wings; much of it heavily corroded. The spring was probably held by a rear hook, of which only a stub survives. The wings have concave and rib mouldings. The main bow is a flattish plate, 2mm thick, circular in outline for the top half and fantailed for the lower half. On the upper half there is an empty circular setting which is held above the main bow on four legs which have curved cross mouldings and a groove along the edges and are attached at top of bow, mid bow and the edge…

Copper-alloy annular brooch of medieval date, now bent and broken. The frame is of flattish section, 2.5 mm wide; it is interrupted by six collets, each 4 mm tall, which retain white adhesive but which have lost their gem or glass settings. At one point the frame is broken; this may be where the pin constriction was, but there is now no evidence for it. The pin is missing. Original diameter perhaps c. 30 mm.

Small-long brooch, missing the terminal to the foot. The head consists of a central square plate, decorated with two vertical rows of crescentic stamps which continue the line of the bow edges upwards. The stamp used appears to be rather crude and the rows are irregular. The headplate is worn, and four stamps in each row can clearly be seen, although there are hints of others running right up to the edge of the square plate. On three sides of the square central plate are large flat mushroom-shaped knobs, with cut-out curves making the 'stems'. The total width of the headplate is 4…

Copper alloy chatelaine brooch. Missing pin, damaged lugs and catchplate, missing chatelaine bar and one side lug. The pin was hinged on 2 close set lugs.

Pin from an annular brooch, made of cast copper alloy. The loop is now incomplete (fresh break). Both shaft and loop are square or rectangular in section and there is a long rectangular moulding at the top of the shaft. These mouldings commonly have grooved decoration, but this one is undecorated. The tip has a cutaway or worn curve on its underside, which would have allowed it to sit comfortably on the brooch frame. There are no tooling marks which might suggest that this curve is original; it is highly polished, which might suggest that it is due to wear. 45 mm long in total.

Half of an annular brooch frame made of copper alloy, D-shaped in cross-section with a groove around the outer edge. The top has transverse grooves dividing it into eleven panels of varying length, alternately undecorated and raised into collets, some of which still have surviving white adhesive which would originally have been used to fix gems into place. At one end (at bottom on scan) a tiny stub of a narrow broken pin constriction can be seen. The frame is 3 mm wide and the collets are 3 mm tall. The original diameter of the brooch would have been c. 30 mm in diameter.
