An incomplete lead alloy early medieval (Anglo-Saxon) brooch of uncertain form. The remaining fragment has a (now) sub-rectangular plate with a one raised lower end which may have arched into a bow, as the bend seems purposeful rather than the result of damage. The front of the brooch is decorated with a central raised, cone-shaped pellet and is surrounded by multiple small pellets arranged in three or four rows around the main pellet. On the reverse of the brooch are two raised triangular lugs, probably the lugs for a hinged pin. Parallels have been difficult to come by - The decorati…
