Group of three Bronze Anglo Saxon brooches circa 6th -7th century AD. This impressive group were discovered together in East Anglia England. Often associated with women and pagan burials. The larger type is a cruciform design and traditionally would have been worn on the breast, and the two smaller long brooches would have been worn on each shoulder. The large Cruciform brooch is 120mm long and shows signs of minor repair to the upper side knobs. The head plate is rectangular with expanded wings, and the top and side knobs have been integrally cast with the brooch. The knobs are rounded in shape with simple collars. The bow has a high arch. There is a zoomorphic terminal on the foot with prominent circular eyes and flaring circular nostrils. The base of the foot is plain and shows slight damage with a chip to one corner. The second is a small long type bronze brooch measuring 75mm long. It has a rectangular flat head plate which is notched either side of the raised bow and on the upper corners. The arched bow is concave on the underside. Above the foot is raised line moulding. The foot itself appears to be of a crescent moon form and is plain with no signs of decoration. The catch plates are still visible on the reverse, although the pin has long since gone which is usual. The third brooch in the group is probably the most common type of bronze long brooch measuring 80mm long. It has a head plate which forms a trefoil with a central square. The head plate does show good ring and dot decoration. The bow is arched with bevelled sides to the footplate and is moulded with transverse bands in the middle. The terminal base is round with some markings. Again the catch plate remains, but the pin would have been lost in antiquity. A splendid early Anglo Saxon bronze brooch group.
