Colyton Boar Badge Cover
From British Archaeology Issue 174 September/October 2020: This silvered boar, Richard III's badge, would have been white when new, with gilded hooves and tusks. It stands on green enamelled turf against a red enamel background, on a disc in a separate gilded frame 8.3cm across. Such a large mount was fashionable on belts worn over armour or on martingales in the 15th Century. A 1980s detecting find in Colyton, Devon, it was reported to the Portable Antiquities Scheme after the finder's death. Many thanks to Marion Moulton and Sheilah OíConnor, and to British Archaeology for the cover photo and publicising the find.
