BROOCH

Unique ID: NLM6185

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Fragment of an Anglo-Saxon lead disc brooch. Less than half survives. The drawing shows decoration of three rings of small pellets, around a concentric ridge, then a gap between these borders and the central motif. The central motif starts with a further ring of small pellets, around a cross motif made up of two strands of smaller, more closely spaced pellets. One arm of the cross survives and there appears to be infill between the arms of more pellets including perhaps a single larger one in the centre of the best-surviving quarter.
