LANCUM-54B816 BUTTON AND LOOP FASTENER

Large cast cu-alloy button and loop fastener dating from the Late Iron Age/ Roman period. The button and loop fastener consists of two fragments which form a flat circular disc which has a cutaway design which looks like three tear-drop shapes in a row which are formed by a curvilinear design. An arm is attached to the reverse of the disc, which is recessed and is roughly triangular in shape, with a cutaway triangular design on the reverse forming a bar on the end where this part of the arm is hollow. On the other side the arm has a rough flattened area where it was probably attached to something. Similar artefacts have been dated from the 1st to 4th centuries AD. Chronology Broad period: ROMAN Period from: IRON AGE Period to: ROMAN Date to: Circa AD 400
