Roman "Trumpet Type" Bronze Bow Brooch
Circa Second Century

The Romans were accustomed to fasten their clothing with brooches. The latin word
for brooch is "fibula" and this is the common archaeological term. Various types of brooch
were being used in Britain at the time of the Roman conquest and the tradition of using
brooches persisted until about the end of the second century and most notably in the form
of the "Trumpet brooch". Later on after 200 AD and into the third century the crossbow type
brooch became more popular within Roman Britain. A brooch such as this is a quite a rare
find for Pembrokeshire and as such, should be reported to Mark Lodwick (PAS) Cardiff.

Miniature Toy Cannon

A toy cannon, cast in one piece with a knob-ended cascabel, integral
trunnions, tapered chase and flared muzzle. Although just playthings,
cannon of this type were designed to be fired, and were potentially
quite dangerous. They used a small charge of gunpowder and were
loaded with a lead or stone projectile. This cannon is tiny indeed!
