This is a small ingot of gold, approximately circular and large 'button-sized' in plan view, but with slight circumference irregularities. The ingot has a convex under-surface, with marked surface irregularities. This indicates the gold was poured into a small dished mould 7.0-7.5mm deep, possibly clay, sand or stone, and solidifying to take on the reverse contours of the rough and cracked surface. The upper surface is flatter, though domes slightly at the edges, with slight upper surface concavities. In cross-section, the ingot is D-shaped. Dendritic structures in the metal, created …

Curator's Report Description of object Rein-ring or harness ring (Found in association with Terret (NMGW-9B2D52) This is a substantial cast bronze ring with a circular cross-section. At one point, there is a slight casting imperfection, visible as a slight pitted thinning with a slightly bulbous or raised margin. This would not have compromised the structural strength of the piece. Slight thinning and smoothing of the internal surface on one side of the ring may represent a slight wear facet, created through pressure from straps or a bit-link. On one upper surface, there is a…
