RING

Unique ID: DUR-D18AB4

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Cast copper alloy circular ring. The ring is circular in cross-section, although wider on one side than on the other, perhaps due to wear. This object is perhaps too small to have been used as a harness fitting, and it is impossible to be sure of its function. Parallels: Rings like this could be put to many uses, and are found on sites of all periods, so it is impossible to be certain of an Iron Age date for this find. There are no direct parallels from the related 1843 hoard. Measurements: Thickness: 3.2mm; diameter: 15.9mm; weight: 1.6g

Notes:

Part of a larger hoard. Other objects can be found on the following records.
