A copper-alloy Medieval annular brooch dating to the period c.AD 1200-1300. The brooch is broadly ovular in plan, with a rectangular cross-section. A zoomorphic head projects from the middle point of each long edge, and curves around to point inwards. It is likely that these represent snakes. The reverse is undecorated, although has a constriction at each apex to acommodate the pin, which is now missing. A green-brown patina is on the surface, as well as traces of gilding. The brooch measures 32.28mm in length, 23.07mm in width, 4.01mm in thickness and weighs 5.77g. Cf. Salisbur…

An Early Medieval copper-alloy Cross Brooch. The brooch was original cross-shaped, but two of the arms are now incomplete. Each arm is sub-rectangular in plan, being slightly wider at the terminal than at the centre of the cross. The perimeter is decorated by a single linear groove. One arm contains three irregularly places diagonal grooves or 'dashes'. The other arm only contains two. In the centre of the brooch are four ringed dot motifs. These are roughly arranged one at the beginning of each arm, but they are somewhat crudely done. An integral loop is located behind one of the arm…

Early medieval gilded cast copper alloy brooch with remains of iron pin fastening on the reverse. Dating from the 8th century, the mount is in fair condition with some gilding, now rather flakey, still present in the crevices of the chip-carved decoration. While the brooch appears to be lozenge-shaped this is likely to be a result of damage to its edges and it it probable that it was circular. A plain cross divides the decorated face into four equal fields, each containing a panel of deeply cut, non-zoomorphic interlace. In the centre is a circular, plain area, through which is an iro…

An incomplete copper alloy brooch or mount, of 8th Century AD dating. Gild copper alloy disc, with a central hole.

The eyes are marked by incised dots, the forehead and nose are separated by a steep step and, behind the eye of each animal, are two converging lines. The possible wings also bear converging lines and the animals' bodies m…

Copper-alloy brooch with enamel and gilding. Circular, with an enamel design resembling a seven pointed star - or a six pointed star with a thick stalk - on its raised pedestal, which is of thickness 2.9mm, and detached from a separate back plate of thickness 1.2mm, which retains gilding, and which may have had a series of projecting lugs.

Copper alloy and silver Brooch. Disc Brooch. Slightly concavo-convex silver disc decorated with five circular compartments of interlocking compass-drawn decoration, attached by four silver rivets of diameter 1.4mm and length 2.5mm to a similarly concavo-convex cast copper alloy disc. Each strand of interlace bears an off-centre incised line, probably to emphasise its course; the rivets are sunk between these lines where they intersect. A central countersunk hole of about 2mm diameter appears integral to the facing, and perhaps to both elements. Diagonal tooling or polishing marks ap…
