Fragment of cu-alloy bangle or bracelet, difficult to date, but probably medieval or post-medieval due to the accuracy and form of the decoration. It was bent and broken when found. The decorative pattern consists of alternating squares filled with either an ammonite-like spiral or a square set at a 90 degree angle, with a small centrally-placed four-petalled flower (see close-up).
