Abstract


Detailed description, including X-ray fluorescence analysis, and discussion of the silver and gold brooch found in a 9th century Norse grave in 1963, now known to have been part of a cemetery. An Irish origin is likely for the brooch-pin, possibly in the second quarter of the 8th century, and comparable hinged-pins are discussed. AR
