Cambridgeshire, England. Circular bronze, under 7/8" diameter with rounded face and flat back forming a ridged edge and straight 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 one a Sterling silver neck chain. Jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
