An almost complete, bent, late Iron Age/ early Roman (AD 25-60) copper-alloy Langton Down type brooch, with damage to the reverse of the spring-housing, one wing end and missing the curl of the catchplate. All damage and breaks are old. The wings comprise the characteristically cylindrical hood, encasing the spring which is now exposed in part. This shows the metal composition of the spring and pin to be different to that of the rest of the brooch - the spring and pin being a reddish-purple in colour, the brooch being a greyish-green. The wings span 17.7mm (originally c.21mm) and are …

Copper alloy brooch. Cast Colchester derivative or dolphin brooch, of an uncertain sub-type as it is now uncertain how a separate spring [probably of iron, and lost] had been retained. Plain curved concavo-convex wings are stained by rust on the reverse, with a central gap in this deposit which could relate to a lost hook - which could point to a variant upon the Mackreth type CD RH. They are met by a plain humped bow of rounded section, which tapers towards a plain foot with the stub of a catch plate behind it. Suggested date: Early Roman, 75-150. Length: 47.9mm, Width: 29.8mm, Thick…

An incomplete orange glass intaglio dating to the Post Medeival to Modern period (c. AD 1700-1900). The intaglio is oval in plan and on one face depicts the bust of a helmeted Mars facing right holding a shield. The intaglio is set within a cast silver frame. The frame has indications of attachment points at the top and bottom of the oval, suggesting the object may once have been from a watch fob or brooch insert. The reverse of the intaglio is undecorated. Similar examples recorded on the PAS database include: KENT-24ABF7; BERK-680E36; and CORN-6C911F, all of which have been dated t…

A Roman (AD 50-150) copper-alloy Colchester derivative brooch ('Dolphin' type) with spring mechanism.

Copper alloy and iron brooch fragment. Cast trumpet brooch, Mackreth type TR 1.b3. A plain trumpet head with a border line bears a protruding spur on top. Behind the head, four coils of a copper alloy spring with chord are probably mounted on an iron axis bar to judge from extruded ferrous corrosion. . Below the head, the bow narrows sharply, before a single moulding above a mid-bow bulge which does not pass all around the bow, and which has three petals between moulding and a discoid centre to the bulge. The arrangement is probably mirrored below. The lower bow is lost. Suggested date…

An incomplete copper-alloy La Tene III, Nauheim Derivative brooch dating from the late Iron Age to early Roman period (c.50 BC- AD 75). The head of the brooch is formed of flattened sheet of metal which rolls under to form a tubular hinge mechanism with an axis bar, which would have held the pin in place. The loop of the pin remains corroded around the axis bar though the pin proper is missing. From the head the bow tapers with a narrow circular section, splays in the middle to form a flattened leaf-shaped panel, and tapers again to a long, thin rounded foot at the bottom. The leaf-…
