The Roman Gods eventually smiled on me today and I found Trumpet Brooch :D :D ::g ::g

Sadly it was broken so to see a complete one and read up on them I did a quick search and found this very informative thread and thought it was well worth a bump.

Speaking to the FLO it was also interesting to be told that the different types were largely regional and that trumpet brooches were normally found in the Midlands and further north and were not common here (found just south of Gloucester).

Yes, this thread's helped me out on several occasions and really warrants a stickie.

Congrats on the brooch

I’d forgotten how blooming good this guide was. Worth bumping for our newer members.

The research section has so much good information in it. It’s really is worth having a root around ::g

This is so brilliant .. I only have a couple of examples but my La Tene decorated version is my favourite. This is a great example of what MD'ists can add to history and recording of it!!
