Object Description

A very fine Celtiberian bronze annular brooch. The brooch features a free-moving central pin, connected to the circular body via a loop. Resting above the pin is a catch plate, which arches above the rest of the brooch and is thicker than the other components. The brooch is modelled from cast bronze, with no decorative embellishments. Brooches such as this were widely popular, owing to their simplicity and ease of use, and remained commonplace until the Late Medieval period.

Date: Circa 3rd-2nd Century BC
Period: Iron Age
