Brooch (back)
Add to album

This enamelled bronze brooch was found at the site of the Roman fort at Newstead in Roxburghshire. It dates from between 80 and 180 AD. This picture shows the back of the brooch.

The lugs and catch on the back have survived, but the pin has not.

Brooches were used to fasten clothing, and are understandably a common find on Roman sites. Disc brooches found in Britain were often decorated with enamel or inlaid glass.
