A study of brooches has found that following the creation of the Danelaw, the form of brooches a person wore was indicative of their chosen identity, either as more Anglo-Saxon or Scandinavian.
This particular brooch is reminiscent of the Jellinge style - a style that is charatcterised by stylised animals with banded bodies.
This is a single brooch.
Diameter: 3.5 cm
Made from zinc alloy.
