Object Detail

Several Romano-British brooches were found during excavations at Edinburgh Castle between 1988 and 1991. Known as a dragonesque brooch, this is similar in style to examples found in the South of England which date from 50 AD to 150 AD. Together these finds provide evidence that the people occupying this site were in contact and influenced by developments in more Romanised parts of Britain.
