A very rare roman brooch dating back to the dawn of the Roman conquest has been found in a field near Sleaford by a metal detectorist.
The colourful Horse brooch was unearthed in a field near Leasingham by metal detector enthusiast Jason Price (48) from Grantham, and has, according to a local expert, rewritten the understandings around Roman brooches.
Veteran Jason found the brooch during as part of a ‘Detecting for Veterans’ weekend. He said: “It was the last field of the weekend and it was heavily ploughed – so I didn’t hold out much hope of finding anything. You can imagine my surprise when my detector started buzzing. About eight inches down I found something caked in mud. At first I thought it was a piece of litter, but as I cleaned it off, my jaw dropped open. There it was – a horse brooch. I was shaking. I’ve found things like coins before, but never anything like this. Absolutely amazing!”
Dr Lisa Brundle, the Finds Liaison Officer (FLO) at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “This brooch is an exciting and rare discovery. It depicts a fairly realistic horse with an outstanding level of detail and is in remarkable condition – it even has the pin still attached! The horse would have originally appeared gold-like and the recesses probably once contained bright red, blue or yellow enamel. It would have been a spectacular sight on someone’s robe.
“This type of Roman horse brooch is incredibly rare in Britain – and is the second only to have been found in the UK. The only other one is in the British Museum and is decorated differently – with spots of enamel only. The Leasingham horse, however, is in a league of its own with its pin situated below the legs and the realistic depiction of a saddle.”
The brooch will be on display at the Collection Museum in Lincoln later this year.

Converting lights to LEDs and switching off street lights between midnight and dawn has reduced carbon emissions by 6,200 metric tonnes a year and is saving £2.5m in annual electricity costs.
The latest figures, revealed by Lincolnshire County Council, show that the council expects to spend £1.95m to light the streets this year. Under previous arrangements, this would have cost local taxpayers £4.45m at today’s prices.
The street lighting changes have also cut the council’s carbon footprint by over 6,200 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide each year – the equivalent emissions of driving a car around the Earth 4,000 times.
Since last year, town and parish councils have been able to apply to keep street lights on all night for in their area for a one-off payment of £150 or £300 per light, depending on whether a separate visit is needed.
The county council has received a number of enquiries about changes the street lights. However, to date, only one formal submission has been made by Pinchbeck Parish Council for four lights on Grove Close. These lights will be changed as part of the routine maintenance schedule in the upcoming financial year.
Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said:
“This is a significant saving – above what we had initially estimated – and it allows us to invest more in the council’s other priorities, including looking after older people and fixing even more potholes.
“There’s no evidence that the change to part night lighting affected the crime rate in Lincolnshire, but we can now see that it has had a marked effect on cutting the impact on the environment.
“For those communities that still wanted the lights on all night, we put in the mechanism for local councils to request that. However, with just one parish council requesting four street lights to be left on, it’s clear that residents aren’t particularly concerned about the impact of part night lighting.”
Just under half of Lincolnshire’s 68,000 street lights have already been converted to LEDs, and around 42,000 currently operate on a part night lighting schedule.
Town and parish councils interested in requesting full night lighting in their area should contact firstname.lastname@example.org and their local county councillor. Requests can only be accepted from parish and town councils or the equivalent precept-setting authority.

This morning saw the arrival of the plinth for the controversial statue of Margaret Thatcher.
Britain’s first female Prime Minister will be honoured in her home town after planning permission was granted to erect a statue of her in Grantham.
A 10.5ft bronze of The Rt Hon Baroness Margaret Thatcher LG will stand on a granite plinth in the heart of the Civic Quarter near statues of two famous sons of the town – Sir Isaac Newton, one of the world’s greatest scientists, and the Hon. Frederick James Tollemache, a nineteenth century politician.
David Burling, a Trustee of Grantham Community Heritage Association (GCHA), which runs the town’s museum and submitted the application, said: “We are absolutely delighted that our plans to bring a statue of Grantham’s most famous daughter to the town have been given the go-ahead.
“The interest and increase in visitors the statue will bring will not only secure the future of the museum for years to come but also allow us to develop and improve our permanent Margaret Thatcher exhibition which is already viewed by thousands of people each year.
Last night joint-manager Paul Rawden informed the club of his decision to step down as manager of Grantham Town Football Club.
Rawden who took charge of the Gingerbreads in February 2019, alongside Russell Cousins and Adam Smith, was bought in to keep the club in the Northern Premier League Premier Division, and achieved this aim, notably beating league leaders South Shields 2-1 at The Meres in their first game in charge.
Former Interim Chair Sophie Cope shared praise for the management team for riding the storm and supporting the club through one of the most difficult times the club has seen of late.
“I’m disappointed to see the guys go, I genuinely am. They’ve took a lot of flack recently which in my opinion was unjustified. I still stand by my decision to keep Paul and Russ as managers who at the time were our best option for staying up. We now have new investors who have the resources available to make changes and the two guys have paved way for that to happen.”
“It goes without saying that we wish Paul, Russ and Adam all the best in their future endeavours”
Danny Racchi will take charge of training tonight and Saturday’s game with Stalybridge Celtic, whilst discussions are ongoing to fill the vacant managerial post as soon as practically possible.
