Circular bronze, Over 1” diameter of particularly heavy oval section. Surface 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 refurbished with the pure silver overlay restored and suspended from a Sterling silver neck chain. Jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity. Good quality and superior condition.
