keyhole-broochThis 'semi-annular' brooch was found a grave site at Laivai Lithuania ~760 - 980. The town was located on a river trade route between Coronian Lagoon in the Baltic and Constantinople. This route required a long portage to connect to the Dnieper north of Kiev, but for Viking Age traders it was still the shortest route between the southeastern Baltic and Byzantium (Constantinople - modern Istanbul)
