Cambridgeshire, England. Circular bronze, under 1” diameter. Convex faces meeting to an outer ridge and rounded inner.  Surface textured from burial with great age character. 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 a Sterling silver mounted polished leather neck cord for modern wear. Jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
