Object type: BROOCH
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lead-alloy/pewter 'nummular' brooch. It consists of a flat circular plate 1.5mm thick, with a beaded outer border which encloses a design imitating a coin. This consists of a concentric legend enclosed by a second inner beaded border, and a centrally located cross. The legend is highly simplified and nonsensical, with individual letters being replaced by strokes. The reverse retains the attachment mechanism, consisting of a damaged pin lug and a sub-rectangular catchplate with a central perforation. Pewter disc brooches with beaded borders are fairly common in the Late Anglo-Saxon per…

Apparently a lead model for a brooch, which would have been circular and slightly domed. Some of the edges now appear to have been cut off straight, and the maximum surviving diameter is 21 mm. There is no decoration on the convex upper face. The reverse is flat, not hollowed, and has a surviving curled-over lug which looks like a catchplate. No pin lug survives. Perhaps a trial piece or a model which would have been used in the manufacturing process; similar to the small Anglo-Scandinavian domed disc brooches of the tenth century AD.

Lead pseudo-coin brooch based on the Aethelred II last small cross type (minted 1009-1017). Circular and 26 mm in diameter, it is now bent around the edges. In the centre is a small relief cross made from four distinct wedges; around this is a plain relief circle, then the legend within an outer border of pellets. The legend reads + T M A O P P - - - N A O (the T may be a second cross; the P shapes are reversed; part of the legend is missing). The legend may be derived from + MA [NIE ON NOR] HA (Manna of Norwich, the moneyer) but it is too blundered to be certain. On the reverse is an…

10th century lead disc brooch. This brooch is flat and circular with a diameter of 30.02mm. It is 1.58mm thick and weighs 10.85g. The front of the brooch is decorated with five integrally moulded bosses, one in the centre of the disc, with the other four evenly spaced around. They survive remarkably intact to a height of approximately 3.5mm. Decoration consists of moulded raised lines, approximately 4mm long, that run around the entire circle of the brooch, roughly at right angles to the edge. Similar raised lines also run out from the central boss in a crude starburst pattern. The…

Anglo-Saxon cruciform brooch fragment, lead, probably the foot terminal from a florid brooch. The object is in the form of a human face and is roughly D-shaped in cross-section. The upper surface is decorated in relief with a prominant forehead and deep set moulded eyes in the form of two large moulded pellets. The nose is large, triangular and flanked by two chubby-looking curved cheeks. There is a deeply incised elongated triangular channel at the bottom of either cheek, which emphasises them against the rest of the face. The mouth is relatively small and represented by two ver…

Lead nummular brooch, complete but crumpled and cracked. 31 mm in diameter, it is decorated with concentric rings of ornament. In the very centre is a relief cross with expanded arms, with a small boss in the middle. Around this is a ring of ladder pattern, and then a ring of pellets and another ring of ladder pattern. On the reverse is a transverse pin lug and a catchplate, both of similar size and both squashed nearly flat; the pin when horizontal would run along the same orientation as the central cross. The design of nummular brooches, as the name suggests, is ultimately based on …

Incomplete lead brooch. It is flat and circular, 39 mm in diameter, and about half is missing. There is a border consisting of two rings of pellets, which surrounds a relief quatrefoil.

Just inside the border, in some places cutting through the outer quatrefoil, is a ring of small circular perforations. On the reverse is a transverse pin lug, now squashed flat. The design of this br…

Anglo-Saxon cruciform brooch, lead. Incomplete lead object which may have formed part of lead cruciform brooch. The object is flat and in the form of a face with scroll-like hair or moustache, depending on which way round the face is viewed. The eyes are large pellets, beneath which is a triangular shaped snout or forehead. The edges of the object is very worn and so it is hard to determine where it is broken. Its back is plain and there are no obvious signs of attachment. The fragment looks similar to the animal-headed foots seen on Anglo-Saxon cruciform brooches.

This fragment has a surviving length of 29.8mm and a maximum width of 11.3mm. It bears all of the decorative elements seen on cruciform brooches; a groove down the back of the bow, faceting and incised lines, the latter cut with a sharp instrument. It is likely, but not certain, that the brooch was shaped by casting before the decoration was added. On the underside of the bow is a narrow groove and a projection which probably represents the catch-plate. As both the foot and the head of the brooch are missing it is impossible to assign it to any group.

A fragment of a lead early Anglo-Saxon cruciform brooch, measuring 16mm in length and 16mm in width. The fragment consists of part of the head plate and one half-round side knob, which is not detachable. The rest of the brooch is missing and the breaks are old. It is unusual to discover lead early Anglo-Saxon brooches; this brooch could have been used as such or may possibly have been a template or test brooch.
