A rolled-up strip of gold of probable Chalcolithic or Bronze Age date (c. 2500-800 BC).

Object type: RIBBON
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragment of gold, possibly from a bracelet or torc surviving as an undecorated oval/ellipse shaped band that tapers to the shoulders of probable terminals that may have been broken (the breaks are not conclusive). The terminals appear to have been twisted prior to the purported breaks (possibly in the process of breaking them). The band has several bends and distortions and it is not clear what the original profile of the band would have been. There are a number of scuffs and striations to both surfaces. Possible small hammer markings can be seen, particularly on one side of the ban…
