County: Suffolk

An incomplete cast copper-alloy fragment originating from a Bow Brooch of Late Iron Age or early Roman date (c. 25-100 AD), probably a Colchester or Colchester Derivative type. It consists the very bottom of the bow, foot and catchplate. The catchplate itself is triangular in plan, with a rolled back edge to accomodate the pin. Preserved in fair condition with an even green patina, it survives to a length of 17.78mm, 7.88mm thick where the catchplate projects, and weighs 1.12g. Due to the fragmentary nature of this object, it is impossibly to type accurately.
