York Equal Arms Brooch- Bronze - Asgard

ABR026-BRZ - York Equal Arms Brooch- Bronze

A replica of a copper alloy brooch found in 10th Century deposits of Coppergate, York. This style of brooch is thought to have developed on the continent around the 7th-9th Centuries, although their presence in York and a similar brooch from Lincolnshire demonstrates that they were still popluar in Britain into the 10th Century. The terminals of the brooch seem to suggest the shape of birds, possibly eagles, maybe even ravens.

Price: £35.00
