Description

Description:

In 2014 a hoard was unearthed by metal detectorists in Galloway Scotland.
The hoard is thought to have been buried by a Viking although some of the finds were Anglo Saxon in origin.
One of the finds was this four-lobed brooch with four matching engraved faces.
Two have floppy ears and may depict hunting dogs. The other two appear to be blowing hunting horns.
Consequently, this is thought to be a hunting scene.

The brooch is fitted with a heavy-duty pin that is re-enactment friendly. Ideal for hefty woolen garments.

The Brooch is made by Asgard, who have been making historically inspired pieces and replicas since 2002.
They are primarily based in Scotland and have a second base in York.
