Pennanular brooch

This brooch was used to secure a cloak.  Brooches of this type are found at a number of Early Medieval sites in western Britain and Ireland.  A very similar brooch was discovered on Luce Sands, Wigtownshire in the 1960s and is now in the Dumfries museum collection.   A pennanular ring-brooch.  The ring has a flattened oval section with flat sub-triangular terminals.  The ring band is decorated with closely set radial grooves and the terminals have central punched dot decoration.
