An incomplete copper-alloy Middle
Iron Age La Tène Type brooch, dating to the period c. 400-200 BC.
Much of the brooch survives, namely the humped bow, with a recurving, narrowed
end where the coiled spring and pin would have been, and a flattened end where
the catch-plate would have developed. The bow is oval in cross section. The object is 30mm long , 5mm
thick at centre, 11mm wide and weighs 2.97g. See Hattatt (2000; 2007; fig.
147, no. 725) for a similar example
