A copper alloy object, probably an Iron Age or Roman brooch dating from about 100 BC - AD 100. The object is bent into a U shape and has a brassy patina.

A fragment of copper alloy late Iron Age/ early Roman (AD 25-60) Langton Down type brooch, missing the lower bow and catchplate and the pin shank.
