Other Saxon Period Brooches For Sale
There was a great variety of brooch-types in Anglo-Saxon England. In the early Anglo-Saxon period, examples of Frankish and Langobardic fashion penetrated to English markets in the form of radiate-headed brooches, animal brooches and the like. With the onset of Viking activity and the later settlement, developed Scandinavian forms such as the tortoise brooch began to appear.
