A gilded copper-alloy cloisonné brooch dating from the late Early Medieval period. The brooch is incomplete but is clearly of a type of cloisonné enamel brooch that was popular in England during the late tenth and early eleventh centuries AD. As it is incomplete it is a little difficult to determine for certain whether it falls within the flanged 'Colchester' type or the the lobed 'Saunderton' type of brooch (as distinguised by David Buckton in 'Late 10th and IIth century cloisonné enamel brooches' Medieval Archaeol 30, 1986, 8-18). The flat reverse and the damaged edges, which per…

Roman cast copper-alloy Colchester derivative Dolphin type brooch with hinged pin dating to c. AD 55-100.

The brooch has a cylindrical head with open ends to the wings and slightly expanded terminals, a copper alloy spindle for the hinge runs through from end to end. One terminal is broken but both wings appear to be decorated with at least six narrow raised collars the same size as the terminals, arranged a…

Incomplete cast copper alloy Roman brooch of initial T-shaped type. The head has two short, tubular wings with a central slot in which the pin head hinges.

The head of the pin is a copper alloy plate, with a piercing to allow the wire within the wings to pass through, securing it in place and allowing it to hinge. This plate …

Head and bow of a devolved T-shaped brooch of local type with a slightly expanded fan shaped head plate. The head is a flat fan (shallow D shaped) plate.

There is iron corrosion visible in the slot and the ends of the cylindrical wings suggesting the hinge was made of iron. At one end is traces of the white subs…

Upper part of the bow and head of a Late Iron Age cast copper alloy birdlip type brooch. The lower part of the bow, pin, foot and catchplate are missing. It the top of the remaining section the bow is oval with a concave back. This probably formed the trumpet shaped head with a spring held in the concave section, although the attachment is lost. The edges of this oval head are damaged, particularly around the lower edges and it may have been larger originally. From this oval top the bow rises at 90 degrees before bending over abruptly and running relatively straight to the foot. In…

The fantail foot of a Roman bow brooch, probably a bow-and-fantail type or Aesica varient (1st/2nd century AD). The brooch has broken at a central circular 'button'. This would have been raised up; the upwards angle as the button connects to the foot seems an original feature and suggests the bow above was also raised. A central setting may have been housed within a double concentric ring moulding that forms the button or this may have been the point from which the bow projected up and out. The foot below is broadly triangular with slightly projecting ring settings at each lower corne…

Roman cast copper alloy oval plate brooch. The brooch has a slightly raised lip around the outer edge of the plate and a large raised oval cell in the centre. The outer lip does not appear to be deep enough to have once contained enamel. The central cell however probably held a glass inset. Traces of the material used to hold the insert in place is visible around the edge of the inner oval. There are possible traces of stamped design around the outer oval. On the back of the brooch are the remains of the lug and the catchplate. The lug is broken and the pin is missing. It is 29.8 mm
