An incomplete stone medieval carving (AD c. 1200 - c. 1500), missing a fragment from one corner (a relatively recent break) and fragments from the front (old breaks). The sculpture has been carved into a block of Birchover Sandstone in sunk relief. The left, right and bottom edges of the block project forward further than the figure depicted. The sculpture depicts a man tilting his head upwards and grinning. The sculpting is quite naive so it is difficult to discern exactly what he is wearing. He appears to be wearing a long striped doublet or cassock. Hanging from his neck is a point…

County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
The following is taken from the Treasure report written by Neil Wilkin (Curator of European Bronze Age collection) Descriptive catalogue Note on numbering, terminology and weight: The gold ornaments were recovered in three nested 'sets' and have been labelled with reference to set number followed by object number (i.e. A.1-2, B.1-4 & C.1-2). The goldwork has yet to be cleaned and the weights given are subject to change. As the ornaments were deposited in a 'nested' fashion, most are covered and obscured by others and set C has a central plug of soil. It was therefore not poss…

Object type: HOARD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire

In 2012 a Middle Bronze Age hoard was discovered while metal detecting on cultivated land. The find consists of 41 copper alloy objects split across two deposits or concentrations of finds, with a small number of finds found a short distance away. All the objects are of a similar typo-chronology and are likely to represent a single hoard comprised of 31 'ornaments', 8 'tools' and 4 'other' or unidentified objects. The artefacts were recovered by the finders from two deposits in close proximity (c.2-3m apart), with two pits subsequently identified by a local amateur archaeology group (…
