The radiate-headed brooch in England

Suggested period: EARLY MEDIEVAL

The PAS database has recorded nearly 40 examples of a specific form of radiate-headed brooch which appears to be confined to England. Like the long equal-arm brooches, they are rarely found in graves, and their relationship to Continental brooches is little understood. Radiate-headed brooches are not easy to study, as recent research is scattered and in a variety of languages, but they are crucial to questions of the relationship between England and Europe in the 5th and 6th centuries AD.
