Information

A circular plate brooch with red enamelled projecting lugs. The cental part of the brooch is in ring form, with a sunken dark red enamelled panel between the inner and outer ring. From the outer ring project six lugs, five of which remain. The lug above the catch plate is pierced. The pin does not survive and there is no trace of an iron replacement. The brooch was found in a coffined burial dating from the 7th century AD, with 19 beads and a knife. The brooch was found at the throat of the deceased and was plausibly suspended from a necklace.
