Object Description

A very fine Celtiberian annular brooch modelled from cast bronze. The brooch features a free-moving central pin, connected to the circular body via a hinge-like loop. Resting above the pin is a catch plate, which arches above the rest of the brooch. The catch plate is thicker than the rest of the brooch, and features angular edges. 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
