Can later early-medieval brooches be identified as Scandinavian by their pin arrangements?

Suggested period: EARLY MEDIEVAL

It has long been thought that Anglo-Saxon and Scandinavian brooches differ in the orientation of their pin fixings. This idea now needs testing, as casual observation suggests it isn’t that simple. This study would define a set of pin and catch attributes and match them with different brooch types, sizes, shapes, art styles and so on.
