A cast copper-alloy ring of probable Medieval to Post-Medieval date. It is circular in form, hexagonally faceted with a central circular aperture and extensive tool marks visible on all surfaces. It measures 21.80mm in external diameter, 12.13mm in internal diameter, 3.15mm in thickness, and weighs 4.60g. This is a simple copper-alloy ring that may have performed a variety of functions ranging from use as a strap/belt fitting, harness ring or even curtain ring.
