Copper alloy brooch. Cast small long brooch with a cross-potent head with rounded ends to its three arms, defined by small U-shaped cut-outs near the springing of each arm, and each end being separated from the rest of the head plate by stamped features which appear as untidy doubled or superimposed chevrons within separate border lines. The effect achieved by this two-dimensional elaboration recalls the rounded knobs of some cruciform brooches. The bow continues with slightly divergent straight sides to a straight-ended foot. At least five ridges are scored across the upper part of t…

An almost complete, bent, late Iron Age/ early Roman (AD 25-60) copper-alloy Langton Down type brooch, with damage to the reverse of the spring-housing, one wing end and missing the curl of the catchplate. All damage and breaks are old. The wings comprise the characteristically cylindrical hood, encasing the spring which is now exposed in part. This shows the metal composition of the spring and pin to be different to that of the rest of the brooch - the spring and pin being a reddish-purple in colour, the brooch being a greyish-green. The wings span 17.7mm (originally c.21mm) and are …

Copper alloy brooch. Cast Colchester derivative or dolphin brooch, of an uncertain sub-type as it is now uncertain how a separate spring [probably of iron, and lost] had been retained. Plain curved concavo-convex wings are stained by rust on the reverse, with a central gap in this deposit which could relate to a lost hook - which could point to a variant upon the Mackreth type CD RH. They are met by a plain humped bow of rounded section, which tapers towards a plain foot with the stub of a catch plate behind it. Suggested date: Early Roman, 75-150. Length: 47.9mm, Width: 29.8mm, Thick…

Copper alloy and iron brooch fragment. Cast trumpet brooch, Mackreth type TR 1.b3. A plain trumpet head with a border line bears a protruding spur on top. Behind the head, four coils of a copper alloy spring with chord are probably mounted on an iron axis bar to judge from extruded ferrous corrosion. .

The arrangement is probably mirrored below. The lower bow is lost. Suggested date…
