Record ID: ASHM-B6AACD
Object type: BROOCH
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy Nauheim derivative brooch dating to the Late Iron Age / early Roman period. The brooch is almost complete, missing only part of the pin. The bow is long and thin and narrows in to the foot, with the central part of the bow being decorated with a double-lined chevron of punched squares, a common method of decoration for this type of brooch. The catchplate on the reverse is triangular. These brooches are sometimes called 'Lowbury' brooches and are associated with the Artebates tribe and the lands around Silchester in Hampshire. They date from c. AD 43-80.

An incomplete copper-alloy 'Lowbury' style brooch dating to the first century AD. Mackreth's (2011) Class 2c, with no. 4014 being an exact parallel. The brooch is missing only the tip of the pin and is otherwise complete with a nice patina. Down either outer edge of the bow of the brooch are paired rows of punched squares. The parallel illustrated in Mackreth was found in levels at Wroxeter and is dated to after AD 55 / 60. Lowbury brooches appear to have gone out of use by AD 80. Although they may date to the Roman period chronologically, they are a distinctively Iron Age brooch and a…

A copper-alloy, coiled finger ring dating from the late Iron Age to the early Medieval periods (c. 200 BC to AD 800). The ring is formed of a circular sectioned rod, which tapers in thickness over a single coil. One end of the rod has a rectangular sectioned terminal while the other tapers (or is broken) to a point. Coiled, or spiralled finger rings occur from the Bronze Age through to the early-medieval period. However the rod from which the finger rings are formed generally have a flat or D-shaped cross section, whereas this example is circular sectioned. It is possible therefore tha…

A complete copper-alloy ring or fitting of uncertain date. The finger ring has a D-shaped cross section and a single cast groove running circumferentially close to one edge.

An incomplete copper-alloy 'spiral' finger ring of later Iron Age to early-medieval date (c. 200 BC to AD 800). The finger-ring is circular in plan and formed from a D-shaped rod that has been coiled around twice forming a spiral. The terminals are narrower than the rest of the band and terminate with a flat, possibly cut end. It is likely that this finger ring is incomplete as comparative examples often have three or more coils. There is no decoration either externally or internally. The plain nature of this artefact makes it difficult to date precisely, with a fairly similar example …

A copper alloy finger ring made from a cut-down bracelet and dating to the late Roman period (late 4th - 5th century AD). The finger ring has been made by using one terminal end of a thin-stripped decorated bracelet, curved in to a circle to form a finger ring. The decoration is moulded into opposing diagonal grooves/chevrons. The inner terminal narrows and has remains of white metal coating. There are possibly the remains of a hooked terminal; it seems that including one of the original terminals was a common theme for these recycled braclets. As a bracelet this fragment would be clas…
