Abstract


A small cross and fragments of a chain were seen embedded in a mass of coins from Dumfries. Further cleaning revealed a complete brooch, portions of another three, and a small bow handle, all of silver. These items and the coins are described here. Other known finds from Scotland are catalogued and illustrated. Five distinct types of brooches are identified.
