A missing piece of Viking history has gone on display in the Manx Museum. Two bronze brooches, which reportedly date to around AD 900-950, are among the recent artifacts in the museum's collection. Previously, brooches believed to be worn by men from this era have been found on the Isle. Up until the discovery of these items, however, no brooches associated with women had been found. The initial discovery was made by metal detectorists John Crowe and Craig Evans back in 2018. Now, the brooches (along with a glass bead and buckle) are exhibited for everyone to enjoy.
