County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
One arm from a pair of copper alloy tweezers of probable Roman date. They are made from thick sheet metal bent into a circular loop with two arms, onely one of which survives. There is no decoration on the arm, which flares from 3.3mm wide at the loop, to 8.6mm wide at the end which is probably an ancient break. The arm is cracked and bent. Geake (Finds Recording Guide, page 74) notes that tweezers of this style date from the Roman to Medieval periods. This pair is more likely to be Roman as it is from a site that produces mainly Roman finds.The metal has a smooth dark patina.

A copper alloy probable dress fastener in the form of a wire pin fashioned in a D shape with the terminal projecting at the bottom of the loop. The terminal is in the form of a thin acorn and is semicircular in section. The rest of the object is circular in section, made of thick wire. The opposite end tapers to a sharp point. This object was probably used as a dress fastener similar to a cloak fastener or hooked tag. The acorn motif suggests a Medieval date, but no parallel has been found. The D shape appears to be intentional rather than as a result of damage. The object has a patch…
