Broad period: ROMAN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Roman copper alloy pin of Cool's (1990) Group 1E dating to the period c. AD 43 - 409. Biconical head, now heavily worn. The shaft is tapering, but is slightly swollen in the centre and is bent at an obtuse angle just below the sweling. The tip is tightly curled. Cool (1990, fig.1, no.3) illustrates a very similar example, which also has a swollen shaft and belongs to her Group 1E (knob heads with swollen shafts), which is concentrated in East Anglia. Although she lists no precise parallels from dated contexts, Cool (ibid., 154) suggests that pins with knob heads were in use throughou…

~~Copper alloy pin. At the head of the pin is expanded and fattened with a V-shaped notch in the terminal forming a nail cleaner. After the head are three consecutive 90 degree elbows causing the shaft to point first down, then forward and then down again, whereby the shaft it runs straight and slightly thickens. The end of the shaft is bent inwards at a 45 degree angle and narrows to a pointed tip. In between the second and third elbow is a small straight section that has a thin concentric scar in the middle where something may have been mounted.
