This enamelled bronze brooch was found in the Baths 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 brooch was originally circular in shape, but is quite damaged now, and somewhat bent. Unusually, the pin survives.

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.
