Copper alloy crown. Found in situ on skull. The crown is made up of a decorated bronze band worn round the head with an attached plain bronze strip over the top of the head. The decorated band was two raised cordons bordered by plain flanges, with the decoration of La Tène style patterns in the 15mm width between the cordons. It was made from two unequal lengths that overlap and attached with rivets. The decoration does not run smoothly from one length to the other, suggesting that it was executed before they were riveted together.
