Two medieval brooches discovered
RARE finds of two medieval brooches were revealed as treasure at a coroner’s hearing on Tuesday 13th December Sitting on a Treasure hearing at Selby Magistrates’ Court, Coroner Rob Turnbull said the two items, both livery brooches, were discovered at separate locations in Beal and Stillingfleet. The first item, a silver guilt brooch depicting a stag’s head with three antlers (above left), is believed by experts to date from either the 14th or 15th Century. Although the silver backed brooch, found with a metal detector at Beal, is damaged, Mr Turnbull said because of its age and the fact it contained a minimum of ten per cent precious metal, it was treasure. http://www.selbytimes.co.uk/news/local-news/district-news/two_medieval_brooches_discovered_1_4059814
