A fragment of a cast copper alloy artefact, probably part of a bracelet of Iron Age date, 800 BC - AD 43. It consists of two hollow hemispheres connected by a short, solid neck of D shaped section. At the outer end of each hemisphere is a small stub of metal, both of which are broken and abraded, probably connections to adjacent hemispheres now broken away and missing. The connecting neck is smooth with the original surface surviving, but the upper side of both hemispheres is rough and pitted and it is not possible to determine whether any decoration was present. The fragment has a da…

Description: A gold-alloy bracelet with loop terminals, Iron Age (c. 100 - 50 BC). The bracelet is comprised of two ropes plaited together, each rope is made up of two wires twisted together. Each terminal is formed of two loops. The outside surface of the terminals has been filled with a lower melting temperature gold-alloy containing approximately 16% more copper than the rest of the bracelet. The overall effect is to transform double loop terminals into single loop terminals. Metal content at the surface: 55% gold; 38% silver; and at least 7% copper. Weight: 63.74g; Maximum Di…

Part of a copper alloy bracelet probably dating from the late Iron Age period (200 BC - 43AD). The bracelet would have been penannular. One terminal and some of the hoop survives. The terminal is D shaped in section. It is decorated with four wide grooves, each flaked with narrow collars and spaced out with thicker D shaped sectioned 'beads' between them. The rest of the bracelet is sub triangular in section, and undecorated. A close parallel has not been found, but the style seems similar to beaded bracelets and torcs of the late Iron Age period. The fragment has a deep glossy brown …

Description Gold-alloy Iron Age bracelet with loop terminals. The main body of the bracelet is made up of two wires, circular in cross-section, twisted together. There are traces of solder on one of the terminals and one of the twisted wires. Metal content: 80-84% gold; 12-14% silver; and at least 4% copper. Weight: 67.7g; Maximum Diameter 75.1mm; Diameter of the loops 13.9mm Discussion Although this form of bracelet is by no means common, a number of similar size and form are known from the late Iron Age site of Snettisham (Stead 1991). These are made of precious metals and…

A copper alloy possible penannular bracelet which is possibly Iron Age or Roman. The bracelet is not complete and perhaps almost half is missing. The bracelet is 52.8mm long, 31.9mm wide and 4.7mm thick, the main part of the bracelet being circular in section with a diameter of 4.7mm. Its maximum diameter is in the middle of the bracelet near the break, and it tapers towards the other end before widening again just before the terminal. The bracelet is not decorated except for the one surviving terminal which is sub-cuboid with two opposing faces decorated with five circular depressions…
