An incomplete, worn and corroded copper alloy Roman plate brooch, possibly of Umbonate type, dating to 100 - 250 AD. The brooch consists of a circular, domed plate which rises to a central point and is concave to the reverse. Near the edge is an incised circumferential line, beyond which is the rim which is decorated all the way round with transverse grooves. Due to corrosion the design on the upper surface is very difficult to determine, but traces of red enamel are visible, which is a common feature on Umbonate brooches. The reverse of the rim is flat. At the top, fragments of a doub…

An incomplete copper ally tanged chisel of Late Bronze Age date, probably of Ewart Park metalworking industry, c. 1000 - 750 BC.

A Roman copper-alloy plate brooch, probably dating from the 2nd to 3rd centuries AD. The plate is sub-oval, with one end flaring to a tail-like feature. A pear-shaped cell at the centre of the plate retains much of its light blue enamel inset. A darker circle within this setting is probably a stain from a black inset, and the overall effect is to create the impression of an eye. At the opposite end to the tail there is a suggestion of a broken chain loop. The hinge is located behind this end and comprises two right-angled lugs, both perforated to hold an axis bar. The lack of a catchp…
