Expanded-Head Pin (1986/975-AE86)

A copper-alloy expanded-head pin from Little Chester, Derbyshire

A copper-alloy pin found at the site of the Little Chester Roman fort. This loose find was found on top of a Roman metalled surface. It has a lozenge-shaped head that is typically Anglo-Scandinavian, but the lack of a secure finds context and its proximity to a Roman surface indicates that it could be Roman.
