RING

Unique ID: SUSS-6F2A65

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

A gold ring of uncertain date. The ring has been badly damaged by the plough and as a result has been pulled out of shape. The ring is complete and still roughly circular (maximum diameter 23.09mm) and the gold is very thin (only 1.03mm thick). The maximum width of the hoop is about 4.7mm. There is no decoration on the ring, and it does not look worn; it may have been a decorative binding ring, for example from a walking stick, instead of a finger-ring.

Notes:

This ring was found before the Treasure Act came into force.
