Lisa Brundle of Lincolnshire County Council said the Roman artifact originally would have looked like gold and was probably decorated with red, blue, or yellow enamel. It still has its pin attached, she added. The brooch is only the second of its type to be found in Britain. The other is on display in the British Museum.
