A copper alloy Early Medieval domed disc brooch. The brooch has a diameter of 26.1mm and is 8.5mm thick. It has a plain border and a design in relief of a Jellinge-style animal with interlace.

Jane Kershaw has identified thi…

Part of the open-work outer shell of a double-shelled oval or 'tortoise' brooch. Made from gilded bronze, only one end survives, with an open-work boss which resembles an animal's head.

One side of this is broken but the other ends in an inward-curling spiral, above which is more transverse ribbing. Either side of this central band are narrower bands which radiate out from the boss. These 2 band…
