Circular bronze, 1” diameter intricately detailed as a wreath. Worn in numbers on the surface of the jerkin, these small metal brooches provided a measure of protection against sword cuts and, in fact, were a form of armor. See current Public Television programming for documentation of these in action. As protectors, they also held spiritual significance for the warrior. Surface textured from burial. Professionally conserved and the gold surface restored. On a modern black leather neck cord with gilt chain closure
