Circular bronze, 3/4” diameter with rounded face and flat back. Lightly 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 conserved and the gold surface restored. On a modern sterling silver chain. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
