A copper alloy annular brooch of 16th - 17th century date. Although these brooches were in use into the 18th century they appear to have been far less prolific and the design of this example firmly precludes an association with the battlefield itself. Unlike many examples it has been professionally made and both brooch and pin are cast. Both sides are engraved with geometric patterns. Report by Stuart Campbell.
