SUPPLEMENTAL READING:

 

The Tara Brooch is a Celtic brooch of the pseudo-penannular type, 

made in 650 to 750 AD. 

It was found in Ireland in 1850,

but, despite its name, not at Tara

but likely near Bettystown on the coast of County Meath.

The name by which the brooch became known

was attached to it by the jeweller who purchased it,

as a marketing ploy for the copies they made.

The brooch was exhibited internationally

and was one of the artifacts that fuelled the

Celtic Revival in the mid-19th century.

It is now on display in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin.

The National Museum of Ireland describes it as follows:

“…[T]he Tara Brooch can be considered to represent

the pinnacle of early medieval Irish metalworkers’ achievement.

Each individual element of decoration is executed perfectly

and the range of technique represented on such a small object is astounding.”[1]
