A late Anglo-Saxon lead disc brooch of Weetch type 4C, dating circa 950-1000. The disc brooch is of the 'Curved Arm' type (Weetch 2014, p.76, fig. 3.11).

Fragment of an Anglo-Saxon cruciform brooch. The brooch is made from lead and only a small part of the head plate remains. It consists of a rectangular sections, with a pertruding decoration is half rounded and collared. The reverse face of the brooch shows that the back of this design is concave. As the material is lead, this could suggest that this wasn't a proper brooch as it were, but perhaps a lead model to test the mould before the finished piece, or even one created to help form some sort of wax mould.
