The Early Saxon brooch may be the same as that displayed in Glandford Shell Museum as a square headed brooch. Several Roman coins displayed with it; both labelled as 'found in the parish'. However no Roman coins recorded
as found by same finder as this brooch; many finds of coins from the parish - could be any or none of these.
