Flat circular brooch, 23.5 mm in diameter, decorated with a relief animal with its head turned to look backwards. The animal is now rather worn and blurred but has four legs, a tail and a long neck ending in a head with an enormous ring-and-dot eye. There is a raised border with transverse nicks. On the reverse is a double pin bar lug, with remains of the iron pin bar and iron spring, and a transverse lug with hole and slot forming a catchplate. A similar backward-looking animal brooch found in an early 10th-century context in 16-22 Coppergate, York, gives the best archaeological date…

Fragment of headplate from a fairly small example of a great square-headed brooch, neatly made of copper alloy but with no gilding or silvering, and now with a nice dark greyish-green patina. In the centre (to judge from the placing of the single pin bar lug on the reverse) is a sunken rectangular panel with a counter-relief double spiral, shaped like an S on its side. In the sunken field around the S is some white material. There is a raised border around the sunken field, decorated with double-crescent stamps. Below and to the right of this border (as you look at it) are fairly f…

Small-long brooch, missing the terminal to the foot. The head consists of a central square plate, decorated with two vertical rows of crescentic stamps which continue the line of the bow edges upwards. The stamp used appears to be rather crude and the rows are irregular. The headplate is worn, and four stamps in each row can clearly be seen, although there are hints of others running right up to the edge of the square plate. On three sides of the square central plate are large flat mushroom-shaped knobs, with cut-out curves making the 'stems'. The total width of the headplate is 4…

An incomplete gilded copper alloy great square-headed brooch of Early-Medieval (Anglo-Saxon) date. The brooch is decorated in relief Style I and fits into Hines Group XXII. A small area of textile is present adhered to the headplate. The headplate, which is now in two parts, is flat and rectangular though now incomplete with roughly one quarter having been lost to an old break. It is decorated with an undecorated strip which runs across the lower edge and is interrupted in the middle by the bow above which an undecorated rectangular panel extends.

Part of head and bow of copper-alloy small-long brooch. The headplate is now sub-rectangular with rounded corners, but the edges are worn and may not be original. There appears to be no surviving decoration. On the reverse is a pin bar lug with corrosion from the iron pin bar and spring. To either side of the lug, the headplate has been bent causing stress and cracking to the metal; both corners on one side have consequently broken off (recent break). The headplate tapers into the bow, which is flat at the top with two transverse grooves. Below, the edges are bevelled and the bow …

Foot from a copper-alloy small-long brooch. The break at the base of the bow occurs just above the catchplate, and is fairly recent. The foot begins with a long panel which tapers from 5 mm wide at the break to 4 mm in the centre. Although now very corroded, it appears to have bevelled edges and some transverse decoration. The terminal is flat and flares out to at least 7.5 mm wide; it is relatively uncorroded and is decorated at the top with two pairs of transverse grooves with edge nicks in between. Below this, the edges are bevelled and the corners are missing.

Bow and upper part of foot from a copper-alloy long brooch, probably a cruciform. The bow is broken at the top (recent break) at the junction with the head. It begins with a flat panel which is decorated with a transverse groove above a pair of transverse grooves each with punched dots along them, with a beaded line in between. The dots have not been punched very accurately. Below this, the main part of the bow is 'facetted', i.e. D-shaped in section with an almost-flat reverse. There is a longitudinal line of dots down the centre of the bow. At the bottom of the bow is another f…

Part of the bow from a large copper-alloy brooch, probably a cruciform. A small stub of head or foot survives at one end, and then the bow begins with a flat panel. Beyond this, the bow is 'facetted' or curved in both planes, with a hollow reverse. Down the centre is a flat area, decorated with two longitudinal grooves; these are largely worn away and only visible as they emerge from the flat panel. The other end of the bow is missing; the break is neither very old nor very new. 20 mm wide.

The headplate is basically rectangular, 33 mm wide and 24 mm in surviving length, with a U-shaped cut-out in the lower edge either side of the bow and a long thin rectangular cut-out at the upper corners (one now damaged).

Fragment of very large copper-alloy openwork disc brooch. Originally c. 60-65 mm in diameter, a little over a quarter survives. Around the outside is a border of worn stamps which were probably originally a dot between two oblique lines or a dot in triangle. The cut-outs were originally around a swastika pattern; only the right-angled end of one arm survives. On the reverse of this arm is a catchplate. One break is extremely fresh, and the others are very slightly worn. A similar, but smaller, example is shown in Mac Gregor and Bolick (1993) no. 5.1.

The headplate is rectangular, 25.5 x 18 mm, and although it does not have the top or side knobs characteristic of the cruciform brooch it does have a very faint hint of a flat central panel and very slightly bevelled side wings. There is no apparent stamping or any other kind of decoration, but the surface is very corroded making certainty impossible. On the reverse of the head is a single broken pin bar lug.

Fragment of lead-alloy nummular brooch. Just a tiny scrap of the edge survives, with relief decoration consisting of a border of ladder pattern, an inner border of pellets, and an inner field of geometrically intersecting straight lines. On the reverse is a transverse pin lug. These brooches are so called because they are ultimately derived from coins; the borders are imitating the filigree settings that were added to coins to make the originals. The fragment measures 22 x 13 mm; the brooch would originally have been about 40 mm in diameter.

Approx. half of the brooch remains. Decoration consists of zigzag incised lines with notches around the outside edge. The brooch has a slight convex curvature. Helen Geake writes: This sounds like an early Anglo-Saxon flat annular brooch, although in the absence of an image it is impossible to be certain. Accordingly, the original date range quoted (410-1066 AD) has been changed to 450-600 AD.

The brooch is broken into two fragments, the break appears to be an old break. The two fragments are slightly distorted, i.e. are no longer flat. The upper surface of the brooch is decorated with three central concentric rings of varying widths and at varying distances apart. The outer edge has a series of seven ring and dot designs. Some of the dots have become holes. The upper surface has a matte grey coating. The reverse of the brooch is covered with a black substance, possibly carbon due to burning. The catchplate is folded to become flat, and the hinge lug is incomplete.

The item is a flat copper alloy fragment which is possibly a fragment of a circle. On the upper face of the fragment there is a small sub-rectangular indentation. In this area on the reverse there is a small lug protruding at right-angles to the reverse face. The lug has a small indentation along its edge. This maybe the remains of a hole in the lug. Around this possible hole is traces of iron corrosion. The iron could be the remains of an iron pin.

Knob of a square headed brooch, 2 lugs at back, multiple birds heads. Helen Geake writes: The image attached to this record shows a detachable knob from a florid cruciform brooch. The description appears to belong to this as well and so the entry in the classification field has been changed from 'square headed' to 'cruciform'. The knob is decorated in Style I, with a human mask flanked by a pair of predatory birds' heads. It dates to the sixth century AD.

Cremated fragment of the foot of a small long brooch. Helen Geake writes: The image linked to this record shows the heat-distorted remains of the foot of a cruciform brooch (a horse-head terminal) rather than a small-long brooch. The entry in the classification field has accordingly been changed from 'small long' to 'cruciform'. This record was created before the Portable Antiquities Scheme began using the Central Database. We are aware that this record falls below our usual standards of recording, and we are working to rectify this.
