A cast copper alloy knop, possibly from a brooch. Due to the fact the knop is the only surviving piece, it is not possible to date it. The knop has a circular, flat terminal, which is joined to a spherical central piece. The outer surface of the sphere is coated in corroded iron, suggesting that it was joined to a larger item at this junction. The metal is slightly pitted and is a mid greyish-green colour.

Terminal from a copper-alloy penannular brooch of early-medieval date and Irish origin. A short length of the curved frame survives, with a D-shaped cross-section, and there is a thickening where this joins the terminal. The terminal is sub-triangular and decorated with a shallow cast relief design. The fragment is corroded so that it is hard to see the details of the design, but it appears to be formed around a sunken lozenge shape within an oval frame with D-shaped cells around the edge of this frame, two above and one below. The edges appear either wavy or incomplete; all edges are…

A fragment of a cast copper alloy Bow-and-fantail brooch of Roman date. The brooch is broken at the bow resulting in the loss of the head, hinge and pin. All that survives in the lower bow, fantail and the catchplate. The lower bow is wide and rounded and the break is very worn. It extends into the fantail which is triangular in shape, giving the object its 'fantail' title. The fantail is decorated with a moulded, raised semi-circle with inward folding, curling ends and topped by a lozenge shape. The decoration shows the influence of Iron Age designs. The 'cell' which forms the backgr…

An incomplete cast copper alloy Thealby brooch of Roman date. The Thealby type is a variant which derived from the earlier Headstud form. The head, wing and part of the bow are all that remains. The pin, foot and most of the catchplate no longer survive. At the apex of the head there is a sunken trough, filled with corroded iron. This could be the remains of a chain or similar item, which held the brooch in place, although the axis bar also seems to be made of iron. From the reverse of the head the remains of the tubular hinge mechanism can be seen within which the iron axis bar survi…
