The Milton Jewel is one of the finest examples of Anglo-Saxon brooches of the period, with a sophisiticated design carried out in a combination of materials.The use of cloisons inlaid with garnet, filigree knot work decoration on gold sheet and shell bossess 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.
ESTE ES EL FAMOSO BROCHE DE KINGSTON : ESTE BROCHE ES UNA OBRA PAGANA DE LA CULTURA SAJONA QUE SE ESTABLECIO EN INGLATERRA A FINALES DEL SIGLO VI. CUANDO FUE ABANDONADA A SU SUERTE POR LOS ROMANOS Y SURGIO EL MITO DE EL REY ARTURO Y CAMELOTH, ETC... SE SUPONE QUE FUE HECHA PARA CONORAR AL PRIMER REY DE INGLATERRA EN EL CONDADO DE KENT. | djnonoxxx
In south-east Anglo-Saxon Britain there was a Frankish influence. Kent seems to have played a pivotal economical role at that time, no doubt linked to the marriage alliance between Aethelberht and the Frankish princess Bertha.
