An incomplete cast copper alloy annular brooch of medieval date. The brooch frame is typologically annular however the six sides are incurved or concaved, so the brooch is better described as having an openwork hexagonal frame. Five sides of the brooch frame are decorated simply with two or three transverse incised lines; the sixth side has the constriction for the pin, which is now absent. The reverse side of the brooch is flat, plain and undecorated. A similar annular brooch is illustrated by Read 2001,no 811, p.110, while a number of similar brooches have been recorded with the PAS
