Treasure case: 2016 T1011 A brooch with a pin on reverse in an Anglo-Saxon style, possibly of gold plate or similar. Dimensions: Length: 46mm Weigh:25mm Thickness: 3-9mm Weight: 10.82g Discussion: After discussions with the curators at the British Museum, the brooch is likely a copy of an early medieval Celtic-style penannular brooch, and could even date to the 20th century. Conclusion: Due to the find most likely dating to the 20th century, it is less than 300 years old and therefore falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996. Curators that revi…

Description: A silver twisted wire ring. Dimensions: Length: 18 mm Width: 17 mm Thickness: 3 mm Weight: 0.8 g Discussion: The option of this being an Early Medieval find was discarded on the basis of construction as it is made from a strip rather than a rod and also due to the format of the terminals. Also on the basis of construction (made of a strip of twisted silver with a twisted wire) the option of it being of Medieval date was put aside. On further inspection the item was found to probably be an element from a more elaborate piece of jewellery dating to…

This gold object is the left half of a partial denture. Brian Williams from the British Dental Association Museum advises that 'it would appear to have fractured in the mid-line so originally there may have been more gold, of a similar size/shape, on the right side making the complete structure horse-shoe shaped. Judging by the surface shapes (circles) we think the structure is cast gold and dental casting didn't become available until the early 1900's. To mask the gold, much of the surface would have been covered in Vucanite (a hardened rubber material) made by the Goodyear Rubber Co…
