Abstract


A copper alloy brooch was found at Bannockburn in 1850. It is very well preserved and in working order. The original pin of the hinge was replaced in antiquity. Two brooches of very similar shape, with hinged pin and solid cross piece, were found at Traprain Law. An unprovenanced trumpet brooch in Perth Museum exhibits to a marked degree the special characteristics of one of the varieties of the La Tene brooch as it was developed in Britain with a large box foot, pronounced moulding round the bow, a top ring and enamelling.
