An incomplete Medieval (1200-1300) gold finger-ring with a broken (but probably complete) loop, missing its setting. Both bezel and loop are rather squashed. The bezel is biconical in shape and measures 7.79x7.58x6.35mm. It is filled with earth, presumably occupying the space once filled with a gem or glass setting. The gold wire hoop is circular in cross-section (diameter 0.97mm) at the back of the hoop, becoming rather more triangular in cross-section close to the bezel (1.7x1.5mm). It expands to a flat triangular terminal at either end, which is soldered onto the bezel. The bre…

Description: An incomplete gold ingot of unspecified date. It is 31.46mm long, 8.6mm wide and 5.95mm thick. It weighs 17.52g. The ingot is sub rectangular in section with the main upper and lower face being flat, but the sides are rounded, made up of 5-6 hammered facets of changing width. At either end there is an old coarse break. Discussion: Gold ingots are very difficult to date as many are not characteristic shapes. This one can be compared to IOW-937FD0 which is Treasure Case 2004 T4, and IOW-0C3A98. The finder notes that Roman coins, but also Medieval pottery was recovered fr…

Late Saxon/Early medieval gold thread found during an archaeological excavation by AC Archaeology in 2009. A single tiny fragment of gold thread was recovered during the process of soil sampling of the fill of a small pit or post hole F328, which also contained a small quantity (12 sherds) of late Saxon/early Medieval pottery and two iron nails. The thread measures 3.5mm in length and less than 1mm in thickness. The fragment of gold thread from Barton Hill would therefore qualify as Treasure under two of the stipulated criteria of the Treasure Act: it is more than 300 years old and …

Post Medieval gold finger ring, 21mm in diameter and 5mm wide with a weight of 3.28grams. The ring is in a poor condition having been squashed, but consists of a plain band with a slightly raised skull motif. The inner side of the band is inscribed: In mathems, [..] ob28May96[..]t82. From what I can see this should read: Jn Mathews E [Esq]. . ob 28 May 96 . .t [aetat] 82 The abbreviated date '96 is 1696, and the first name is probably John, abbreviated to Jn.
