Front Cover

1 Review
The quoit brooch style, a decorative style of animal and geometric motifs, is unique to southern England in the 5th century AD, with the greatest concentration of such items occurring in Kent. The author defines the style through an analysis of its design organization, and, by comparing it with near-contemporary styles in England and on the continent, he identifies those features which make it unique.
