Brooch card

Brooch

M6235
One of a pair of two fibulae, the other being M6234. Made from white metal (possibly silver) made in one piece from wire, thinner for pin than back, coiled for spring, and hammered out to make catch-plate. Decorated with groups of three transverse grooves. They were associated with a female inhumation containing a very large composite brooch (M6226: the Kingston Brooch), a gold shield-shaped pendant, the remains of a box, a thin iron chatelaine, a Frankish pottery vessel and metal bowl with trivet, a hanging bowl and a palm cup.
