Possible copper alloy plate from a brooch of uncertain type, possibly Roman The object comprises a fragmentary and distorted circular disc of sheet metal (with a maximum distorted diameter of 34.2mm, a thickness of 0.1mm and a weight of 2.4g). The rear has what appears to be an integral catch-plate adjacent to the edge (with a depth of 7.8mm and a length of 6.2mm). There is the possible suggestion that the plate has broken across a central hole. There is no decoration evident on the surface but there appears to be remnants of tinned or silvered surface on the front of plate. Else…

Copper alloy bow brooch of unusual form and possibly of Roman date, c. 1st or 2nd century AD date but also possibly a modern pastiche The brooch is near complete, missing the pin (with a length of 55.5mm, a depth of 20.7mm and a weight of 6.5g) and has been forged from a copper alloy strip rather than cast. The missing pin was hinged within a rolled head, comprising the bow simply turned internally with a slot to accommodate the pin. The bow is a simple rectangular sectioned strip (8.7mm wide at the head and 1.0mm thick). The sides are straight and gradually convergent to the pointed…

Flat bow of small curvature expanding towards the missing foot. The bow is decorated with fluted reeding, which runs along its entire length and terminates at the moulded transverse rib located at the bow’s junction with the spring-cover. The catch plate is deformed and partly missing but contained a single perforation of indeterminate shape. The cylindrical spring-cover is open along a slit on the back of the brooch and at either end. Only two incomplete fragments of the brooch survive. The bow has been bent through ninety degrees, although it is uncertain whether this occurred…

Derivative trumpet-headed brooch of the disc and trumpet type. The bilateral, six coil, spring is accommodated in a recessed hollow set in the rear of the head while the axis bar is held in place by two perforated lugs on either side of the head (type N cf. Hattatt 1982, 49). The bow is straight, with a raised disc set mid-way along its length and terminates in a pseudo-penannular loop. The brooch is incomplete: the chord, pin, part of the solid catch-plate, the lugs set either side of the mid-bow disc and the fixed chain loop surmounting the head of the brooch are missing. The surface…

Cast copper alloy two-piece bow brooch. The chord, pin, lower half of the bow and catch-plate are missing. The brooch contains a bilateral spring held by a copper ally axis bar through a cast lug on the back of the trumpet head with the chord below and free, just pressing against the back of the head of the brooch (cf. Type G Hattat 1982, 49, table 2). The upper part of the lug does not extend above the back of the head. The decoration on the middle of the bow is not of the usual "acanthus" form, but instead consists of a wide notch. Other decoration on the brooch consists of curvilin…

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 …

Fragment of a cast copper alloy two-piece trumpet brooch. Only part of the bow and head survive; the spring, chord, pin, lower half of the bow and catch-plate are missing. The surface of the brooch is heavily corroded and much original surface detail has been lost. The reverse of the brooch's head contains a perforated lug, which would have presumably accommodated an axial bar. The upper part of the lug apparently extends above the back of the head. The decoration on the middle of the bow consists of poorly defined triple mouldings rather than a typical "acanthus" motif. No other deco…

Fragment of a cast copper alloy two-piece head stud brooch with small fluted wings. Only the upper part of the bow and part of the hinged pin survive; the chain-loop, lower half of the bow and catch-plate are missing. The bow is decorated with a line of small recessed lozenges which presumably formed settings for enamel. The head stud is a simple raised pellet with a central boss. Surviving length 26mm. Mid first to second century in date.

Fragment of a flat, equal-ended type of plate brooch consisting of a symmetrically arranged, lozenge-shaped plate and one moulded terminal of 'acorn' form. The lozenge-shaped plate is divided into five separate panels; that is a wide central rib, flanked on either side by a narrow strip, which is in turn flanked by a triangular panel. Presumably these five panels originally contained enamel, none of which now survives. Part of a small catch-plate remains on the reverse of the terminal. Surviving length 25.5mm, width of lozenge-shaped plate 22mm, weight 3.0grams. Probably second century…

Cast copper alloy hinged T-shaped brooch of uncertain sub-type. The head of the brooch, which in profile is sharply turned down from the bow, accommodates a hinged pin and two projecting cylindrical wings. The end of one wing is missing; however, the end of the complete wing is notched. Part of a lug, which probably formed an integrally cast chain loop, projects from the top of the brooch's head. Only the upper part of the hinged pin survives. The upper half of the bow forms a petal-shaped plate embellished with three recessed panels, which presumably accommodated enamel decoration. Th…

Probably a Romano-British, copper alloy Colchester derivative brooch of the Polden Hill type with flat wing ends. The brooch contains a bilateral spring of fourteen coils. A simple rearward-facing hook on the head of the brooch presumably accommodated a now missing, overhead chord.

Copper alloy brooch of Pannonian Flugelfibel type. The head of the brooch expands to accommodate the missing spring and pin mechanism which was held in place by a central rearward lug the upper part of which was extended to form the chord hook. The upper part of the straight bow is embellished with a single knob set between two forward facing wings curved towards each other, the lower of which is incomplete. The end of the upper wing, which has been repaired by the finder, contains a central perforation (diameter 2-3mm), presumably to accommodate a knob or other fitting. Only the sect…

Copper alloy Dolphin type brooch of plain and simple form. In profile it has the typical bow shape of a Dolphin brooch with a chunky bow humped at the head and tapering towards its foot. The plain wings are distorted but the semi-circular recess on their reverse, which accommodated the spring mechanism, is still visible. Part of the rearward facing hook on the head of the brooch survives; however, most of the catchplate and the spring and pin mechanism are missing. The surface of the brooch is pitted. Probably dates to the second half of the first century AD. For parallels cf. Hattatt…

T-shaped brooch with tubular wings, hinged pin and flat tapering bow. The bow narrows through a marked step mid-way along its length. The bow is embellished with a central rib flanked on either side by a narrow groove set adjacent to the edge of the bow which extend only as far as the step.

Cast copper alloy undecorated, hinged, T-shaped bow brooch. The bow is narrow and narrows as it curves towards an almost point-like tip, while the wings of the brooch are unusually short. Most of the pin and part of the small catch-plate are missing. Length 47.5mm, width of the head 11mm, weight 6.5 grams. For a close parallel cf. Hattatt 1987, 104, no.906, fig.37. As a type the T-shaped bow brooch is a rather general grouping which encompasses nearly forty sub-types, several of which are demonstrably localised in their distribution. T-shaped brooches remained in vogue from the mid fir…

Hinged, copper alloy T-shaped bow brooch, possibly an example of a Lower Severn sub-type (Hull's type 104). The brooch has wide tubular rings which taper towards their ends. The wings are decorated with transverse and diagonal grooves as well as a waisted moulding towards their ends and a terminal moulding embellished with transverse incised lines. The wings accommodate a pivot for the hinged pin mechanism. Flat, comma-like mouldings or "appendages" are present either side of the bow adjacent to the wings. The bow, which is widest at the head and tapers to a point, forms one continuous…
