Copper alloy ring fragment. Cast D-section fragment of a band with a central circumferential groove and slighter bordering grooves on its convex side, both perhaps with inlay, and of estimated internal diameter 30mm. The diameter appears excessive for a finger ring, and the decoration of an unexpanded part of the band – i.e. away from the bezel – seems unlikely for a finger ring. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Early Medieval, 43-850

Length: 21mm, Band Width: 6mm, Band Thickness: 2.7mm, Weight: 2.38gms
