Object type: RING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Blackpool
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
A rare 'Christogram' gold ring inscribed with 'JHC' in a sub-oval bezel meaning IESUS HRISTOS SALVATOR Jesus saviour of man. The ring is probably 17th century but could be earlier. In the latin speaking Christianity of Western Europe the most common Christogram is 'IHS' or 'IHC' derived from the first three letters of the Greek name for Jesus, Iota-eta-sigma. The Greek letter eta was transliterated as the Latin letter C due to the visually similar form of the lunate sigma or as Latin S since the two alphabets wrote the same sound. Because the Latin alphabet letters I and J were not sy…

2. (KKGF 03 (205). sf 234).Incomplete necklace. The necklace is constructed in the same manner as no. 1, although the terminal, of which only the hook part survives, has a rectangular sheet metal cover plate wrapped around it. The chain is irregularly interspersed with a series of cut stones: there are 10 reddish-brown polyhedral faceted garnets, two disc-shaped garnets, and three cylindrical emeralds of different sizes. It is possible that some of the beads were added to substitute missing originals, with the ten faceted garnets perhaps representing the original stones and the other,…

1. (KKGF 03 (205). sf 233). Fragment of a bracelet or necklace. The surviving section is composed of a series of gold filigree double-loop links, the bars of which were threaded with polyhedral faceted beads of the green stone variscite. Seven beads survive. The terminals consist of a hook and eye attachment, each of which were soldered onto the last link chain by means of a triangular plate. Both terminals survive attached to each other; one part of the chain is missing, and it is unclear exactly how long the chain was originally, although it has been suggested that this item of jew…

Description: A gold biconical bead from a necklace, made from a single coiled length of plain unbeaded wire. Both ends of the wire appear original; one is neatly tapered and the other has a blunter end. The coils are soldered together, but there does not appear to be an internal backplate to which the wire is soldered, as there are occasional cracks through which the solid soil infilling can be seen. The bead is slightly flattened lengthways and there is an indentation on one side. Dimensions: It measures 12mm in length and 5mm at its widest, and weighs 1.9g. Discussion: This…

Circumstances of Discovery In October 2006, twenty seven Iron Age coins were discovered. Two early groups of coins (2003T7 and 2005T18) were found at the same spot in 2002 and 2004 respectively, suggesting that the present coins should be considered as addenda to these earlier finds. The Coins One of the coins is an uninscribed gold 'stater'; the others are smaller uninscribed gold 'quarter staters'. All were produced towards the end of the first century BC. As none have inscriptions they cannot be directly associated with an historical attested ruler. Their style of these co…
