Good afternoon fellow history lovers.
Found this today, on a site we know there was a roman villa and has turned up finds through out the ages. This item has been broken there are clear break marks on either end. I cannot decide if it's bent out of shape by plough or cultivation. My guts telling me it's not in original shape.
Any light that can be shed will be grateful.
Not sure if is penannular brooch but its the closest resemblance i can find.
Thanks Paul
