Cambridgeshire, England. Circular bronze, just over 3/4” (0.81”) diameter. Both sides slightly rounded with rounded edge. Tapered cross pin. Surface textured from burial. 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. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored and suspended on an 18” Sterling silver neck chain. Jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
