A fragment of a cast copper alloy brooch dating to the Roman period. The brooch is a Hod Hill type dating between 43 and 70 AD. The brooch consists of the hinge and part of the bow. The pin is missing but there are traces of iron corrosion in the hollow tube that would have held it. The bow is slightly arched and tapers towards the base. There is a transverse break across the bow before the foot meaning that the catchplate is also missing. The bow is undecorated. The brooch measures 31mm in length. A similar example can be seen on the database at SUR-FE6060.
