Roman Brooch - 1st
to 2nd C
A new field, a new adventure.
Five hours later I had only found a half-penny of George V
and then this brooch came out. After a bit of research I found
what I was looking for in "Ancient and Romano - British
Brooches" by R Hattat, and the item is a trumpet-headed
fantail brooch - 1st - 2nd C, decoration Celtic. It was a
very nice find indeed. I have been back but the field seems
to be devoid of finds of any sort. There must be a logical
explanation why the brooch was found in this barren field.
I will let this one pass.
