TREASURE CASE : 2012 T849. A medieval gold finger-ring, each shoulder decorated with two raised quatrefoils, one of which is slightly damaged.

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
A total of 91 items were recorded of which 86 are early Medieval and, with three possible exceptions, probably relate to the hoard. The finds recorded consist of 38.85g of gold and 100.90g of silver, including the 79.13g cheek piece, 5004 . It must be recognised that these figures include both earth and garnets and will be reduced by cleaning and that the descriptions of the metal alloys are based only on visual examination, not analysis. The finds include a block of earth which appears to contain gold, 5091. The preliminary x radiographs suggest that this contains a single, folded, s…

A coin hoard comprising 44 Iron Age staters of the 'Norfolk Wolf' Uninscribed Icenian JB type. These were found scattered in what appear to have been two groups over a relatively small area, the first group in November 2012 and the second in ?March 2013. If two hoards were concealed, however, these must surely be two part of one main deposit; the two groups of coins share die-links as well as being of the same type. All of the South Norfolk coins are struck from the same rather pale debased gold, implying a date of production some years after the beginning of the Norfolk Wolf serie…

Object type: LUNULA

Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
The lunula is in two parts and nearly complete, only missing one of the circular terminals. The object is made of gold and so the precious metal content is more than 10%. The lunula is semi-circular in plan although both parts have been folded. There is one part which does not have a terminal and it is this section which is less folded making the semi-circular shape more obvious. The widest section of the lunula is where the two pieces have broken apart and then the object tapers towards the terminals. The section which still has a circular terminal is more severely folded and ther…
