Roman copper alloy bow brooch of Trumpet type and of Chester sub-type (hull's Type 154) and of 1st or 2nd century AD date The brooch is incomplete, missing the foot, catch-plate and spring and is heavily-corroded (with a surviving length of 39.7mm, a surviving depth of 20.0mm and a weight of 6.1g). The missing spring was secured around a perforated lug, at the rear of the head. Iron corrosion around the lug suggests that an iron axis bar and possibly also an iron spring was employed.

Prehistoric flint knife or awl, probably of Neolithic date The knife is incomplete with the tip fragment represented (with a surviving length of 32.2mm, a maximum thickness of 4.0mm and a weight of 2.3g). Although the knife appears to have broken across its width (where it has a width of 15.5mm), there appears to be retouch over the break, perhaps suggesting the tip was deliberately backed and implying a possibly secondary use as an awl. Both sides are retouched along their entire surviving lengths, as they converge to the tip. The retouch is confined to the dorsal surface, although …

Object type: FLANGED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete copper alloy Early Bronze Age flanged axehead. This axehead has a rounded arched butt and slightly diverging sides that abruptly expand to a broad crescentic blade and cutting edge, with the blade tips at right angles to the sides, but not recurving. Cast flanges extend along the sides, rising very gradually from the butt towards the middle of the axe and sloping down again to the blade expansion. This gives the axe a very shallow lenticular side profile. The flanges are slightly triple-faceted, so are slightly angled inwards on both faces and on one side very faint trac…

Ninety-one Roman denarii, principally of the first and second centuries A.D. As found the coins are in differing conditions, some fresh, some encrusted with corrosion products, perhaps the result of contact with vegetable matter in the form of grass which appears to have been deliberately included within the container of the coins. A detailed study must therefore await conservation of the coins. The coins were contained within the remains of a pottery vessel The latest coin in the hoard is a denarius of Marcus Aurelius, dating to his eighteenth tribunician year, or A.D. 163-4. T…
