Roman copper alloy bow brooch of Colchester derivative, Polden Hill type (Mackreth Part 3, Group 4a-4.b, flat wing ends type) and probably of late 1st - early 2nd century AD date. The brooch is fragmentary, represented by the head only and was comparatively substantial (with a surviving length of 27.5mm, a surviving depth of 16.1mm and a weight of 15.4g). The missing spring was secured between lateral perforated lugs and the chord was probably tensioned by a hook at the head, in a Polden Hill, hook type arrangement.

Roman copper alloy bow brooch of Dolphin or Polden Hill type and dating to the 1st century AD. The brooch is incomplete, missing the lower bow, the majority of the wings and the spring. The brooch employed a spring mechanism secured by either a rearward claw or a Polden Hill arrangement, since the wing terminals no longer survive it is now difficult to determine which type of arrangement was used. The head of the bow is comparatively large (12.5x14.5mm) and was decorated with a central raised V-shaped crest, possibly covered in punched marks. The bow has a D-shaped section and emerges…

Small copper alloy figurine of classical style in a battered state. Right arm appears to be raised with the left lowered or forward pointing, but both are broken. Head area is badly damaged, with no trace of any features surviving and even its original shape is unclear. It appears to be a female figure in a long skirt, either bare chested or with a tight fitting top. The long pointed nature of the head could indicate a helmeted figure which could suggest that the figurine was of Minerva, an identification supported by the apparently raised right arm which would fit with holding a spe…

Romano-British, copper alloy Colchester derivative brooch of the Polden Hills type. The brooch contains a bilateral spring of ten coils whose overhead chord is held in place by a simple rearward-facing hook. A copper alloy axis bar passes through the coils of the spring and is held by pierced circular plates at the ends of the wings (cf. Type L Hattatt 1982, 49, table 2). The wings are semi-cylindrical and both accommodate and hide from view the spring mechanism. The ends of the wings are decorated with moulded "knurled" ribs set adjacent to the pierced circular plates. Flat circular …
