Roman copper alloy bow brooch of unusual design, probably a derivative of a Headstud type and dating to the early 2nd century AD. The brooch employed a spring mechanism secured by lateral lugs at the end of very short wings, which would not have protruded much beyond the head. At the head is the remnant of a flat plate, possibly from a chain loop. The head is comparatively long and has a sub-rectangular section. The only decoration on the head is a short rectangular cast rib and a moulded oval at the junction with the bow, in place of the headstud. The Bow is at a right angle to the he…

Roman copper alloy bow brooch of unusual form and design, and probably of 1st century AD date. The brooch is incomplete missing the wings, spring and pin. The brooch would have consisted of two parts, excluding the spring, where the wings were riveted to the head of the bow by an integral pin at the back of the head. At the base of the rear of the head is a small rectangular lug preventing the wings from moving. The wings are likely to have employed a form of Polden Hill arrangement, similar to the recorded example NMGWPA 2004.11.1. The bow is slight and no decoration is now evident. T…

Roman copper alloy bow brooch of unusual form and design, and probably of 1st century AD date. The brooch is incomplete missing the spring and pin.
