Copper alloy penannular brooch fragment. Half of the ring, missing pin, fairly corroded. Circular section ring, diam. 3 mm, with closely set transverse grooves on the outer face, undecorated (grooves worn away?) at the back. The terminal is slightly expanded, flattened and almost rectangular with a lozengiform moulding on the outer face and another V-shaped moulding joining the terminal to the rest of the frame.

The cone has three concentric ribs at the base; the outer one has fine incised lines across it.

Large dragonesque brooch, complete apart from the end of the pin. Both head and foot are identical, each in the shape of a 'dragon' head. The eye is made from a bold ring-and-dot, and the curled-up snout ends in a circular lobe decorated with five punched dots (unclear on the foot due to corrosion). The ears are formed from an oval lobe divided into two by a tall ridge; either side of the ridge are champlev√© cells for enamel. These have a keyed surface but all the enamel is now missing. The neck and foot curve in towards a widened body which is decorated with more champlev√© cells, a…
