Ancient Artefacts Category
Medieval Silver Brooch Buckle
Circa 13th to 14th Century

Found by Steve Richards, a silver annular medieval brooch buckle of the type without
a pin constriction. The brooch is small with a diameter of 19mm and is of very delicate
construction. Amazingly the pin itself has decoration running down it on both sides and
the surface of the ring section also has traces of surface decoration or possibly gilding.
Steve will now be passing the ring brooch to Marion Page MA (Dyfed Archaeological Trust),
at our next meeting, from where it will begin its long journey through the Treasure Act process
