Anglo-Saxon cast copper alloy button brooch. Button brooches are circular in shape and resemble miniature saucer brooches, although the relationship between these two brooch classes is not clear. This brooch is an example of Avent and Evison Class ii. The brooch is 17mm in diameter, all other measurements are unknown. The brooch is slightly worn, with no gilding on the surface. Button brooches usually have a gilt surface; however there is no trace of gilt on this example. It is most likely that the gilt was lost due to corrosion of the copper alloy base metal; however the brooch ap…

Anglo-Saxon small long brooch. This cast copper alloy brooch has traces of tinning on its surface, and the brooch is incomplete due to a missing bow and footplate. The degree of wear on the break at the base of the headplate is unknown. however the visible edges of the headplate from the photograph show chipped, damaged edges with little evidence of wear, suggesting that the brooch was damaged due to relatively recent agrticultural activity. The brooch is an example of Leeds (1945) cross-pattee headed small long brooch. As the typology suggests, the headplate is cross shaped due to th…

Head from of a copper-alloy early Anglo-Saxon brooch. It has three roughly rectangular knobs, half-rounded and with a flattish cross-section. There are two perforated lugs on the reverse of the headplate, with the remains of the iron spring/pin mechanism surviving between them. There is a worn break at the junction of the headplate and bow. The brooch has an even brown patina. Although this brooch clearly refers to a cruciform brooch of Aberg's Class II, the simple nature of its design (with no wings to the headplate) suggests that it may actually be part of a small long brooch with…
