Ancient Roman Brooches for Sale
Brooches were not just for decoration, they were worn by both men and women to secure clothing similar in their securing technique to modern safety pins. They were normally made of bronze and were commonly silvered or decorated with coloured enamels. Brooches were already being worn by the native "British" before the Roman invasion, so a number brooches of the Roman period show a mixture of both British and continental styles.
