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.

Fragment of a bow brooch consisting of the lower part of a flat narrow tapering bow, slightly curved in profile, embellished with a shallow channel adjacent to each edge. Part of small catch-plate survives. Surviving length 36mm, surviving maximum width 6.5mm, weight 1.5 grams. The simple form of the flat bow and small catch-plate suggest that this was probably part of a Strip Bow brooch.
