The Milton Brooch, Anglo-Saxon, 7th Century AD

The Milton Jewel is one of the finest examples of Anglo-Saxon brooches
of the period, with a sophisticated design carried out in a combination
of materials.The use of cloisons inlaid with garnet, filigree knot work
decoration on gold sheet and shell bosses are typical of this type. The brooch was found in 1832 in a cemetery at Milton, west of
Dorchester-on-Thames. There is another similar brooch in the Ashmolean
Museum, Oxford, which was found nearby.
