A bone finger-ring, probably cut from a long bone. It is ornamented with a pair of circumferential grooves around the outer edges, which enclose a double row of circumferential chevrons, rather crudely executed. The chevrons are uneven, made up of grooves which often do not meet. They are aligned so that the ups and downs coincide, giving the effect of a single zig-zag line outlined by grooves. There is a small area of damage to the ring, otherwise it is in good condition. The thickness of the band is uneven, although this is a common feature of rings of this date. Bone rings are qui…
