Reconstruction illustration of a bronze disc-shaped brooch from Uppåkra with a diameter of c. 3,5 cm.


I came across this brooch a few weeks ago, and it hit me that it would actually be reasonably straight-forward and fun to try to reconstruct it. So I went for it.


Check out the video tutorial to see how I approached reconstructing the design featured on the brooch.
