An incomplete copper alloy early medieval disc brooch, dating from c. 5th to 6th century AD. The brooch is flat and circular, with a border of small punched ring-and-dot motifs running round the edge of the disc. Many of these motifs are now worn on the very edge, so that they appear crescentic. There is also a central circular dot. The reverse is not decorated. There is the remains of the sub-circular pin lug on one edge, with orange iron staining surrounding this, suggesting the pin was iron. On the opposite edge is the trapezoidal catchplate, now folded over so the end touches the …
