At our open day on 4 July we will have an exhibition of finds that we have recovered from sites in Kent. Pictured below are just two examples from a site at Wainscott in Medway. Both of these items are brooches and as you can see are quite different in appearance. On the left is a brooch dating to the Romano-British period made of copper alloy. It would have had 10 semi-circular projections around its edge, with the two concentric circles inlaid with coloured enamel in the centre.
On the right is a Saxon button brooch decorated with a highly stylised human mask at its centre. These are just two of the personal items recovered from one of our sites in Kent, come and see these and many more at our London & South East office open day on the 4 July.
