Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Roman silver finger ring, plain oval hoop, broken and dented at the bottom. The flattened slightly swollen bezel widens to accommodate an oval pinky-red carnelian intaglio. The motif appears to be a very stylised pair of clasped hands (dextrarum iunctio). The wrists and palms are represented by a simple thick line with blocks at each end, and the fingers and thumbs by lightly incised lines. Analysis indicated a silver content of c. 93% and confirmed the gemstone as carnelian. Wt.: 3.77g Ext.d: 21.0 mm Int.d.: 17.9 mm Guiraud type 2e Date: 2nd to 3rd century AD

Simple one piece-brooch, Nauheim-derivative type with a flat broadly ovoid bow, undecorated, made of sheet metal, which narrows to a wire that forms a simple loop and the pin, both of circular cross-section. The catchplate is missing. Discussion: the brooch is so small it seems unlikely to have had much practical use, suggesting it was produced for symbolic reasons. For discussion of brooches of this type see Bayley & Butcher 2004, 146-8. For a parallel, see Hattatt 1987, no. 737. Date: late first century BC to early first century AD Wt.: 1.42g L.: 26.2mm W.: 6.6mm Refer…

County: Monmouthshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A slightly tapering tube with coiled wire decoration attached to it near the wider end and about two-thirds of the way down. The wider end is closed by a flat plate, secured from coming out by the ends of the tube being bent over. The plate now sits at an angle, with one side pushed slightly down the tube, but it would appear that it originally sat square to the end of the tube. Attached to the plate is a small loop, of fairly flat cross-section. The tube is bent slightly to one side towards its narrower end, the edges of which are folded in. It seems likely that it is broken at this …

A fragment of a silver spoon, almost certainly of Roman date. The fragment consists of part of the handle, of circular cross-section, in the form of unevenly twisted thick wire - the end of the handle is broken and missing. At the bowl end, the handle is square in section, and has a solid, quarter-circle offset with rat's tail onto a fragment of the bowl, probably oval or pear-shaped originally, but now almost entirely missing. The surface gives the appearance of having been heavily cleaned. Discussion: it is possible that the fragment has been deliberately created, i.e. that th…

Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Roman gold finger-ring with solid stepped rectangular bezel. The hoop, distorted and incomplete, comprises an oval-sectioned, ribbed rod, smooth on the outer face. At the shoulders it is fused to the base of the bezel and enclosed by three pellets. The bezel has a short two-line inscription incised on its lightly-cambered surface. Wear, also apparent on the hoop and shoulders, has partially erased the inscription, which appears to read _ IV / _ II, perhaps [V]IV(AS) (ie. 'Long life to you .....') followed by an abbreviated personal name. The ring form is paralleled by an exampl…

Broad period: ROMAN
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Roman penannular silver bracelet fragment, comprising part of the slender oval-sectioned hoop, now distorted, and one terminal. The terminal is in the form of a stylised snake-head with neatly-incised jaws, round eyes and skull-markings and hatched sides representing the scaled body. Snake jewellery, with its important symbolism, was popular over a long period, in Roman Britain as in other provinces of the Roman Empire. The slender, relatively realistic form of this snake bracelet is comparable to an example from Stonea, Cambs. (R. Jackson and T.W. Potter Excavations at Stonea, C…

Complete silver adjustable bracelet made from an undecorated wire, 3mm in diameter at the centre tapering towards the terminals, which overlap and twist around the hoop to fasten the bracelet. Commonly found made out of copper alloy, this form of expanding bracelet is a well-known type dating to the later 4th century (Barber & Bowsher, 2000, p199, B461.3-4; Clarke, 1979, p304, Type C1a). Precious metal examples are far less common, although a gold example is known from York (BM Guide, 1951, fig. 7, no. 10), and a silver example from London (Wheeler, 1930, Pl. XL, 2) Bibliography…

The group consists of two silver Roman Republican coins of a denomination known as denarii and one denarius of Tiberius, four silver Iron Age staters and eight copper alloy sestertii and dupondii from the reign of Claudius I (AD 41-54). The Iron Age staters are uninscribed types usually associated with the Durotriges, a people thought to have inhabited an area covering the modern county of Dorset, parts of Somerset, Wiltshire and Hampshire and the Isle of Wight during the late Iron Age. They were produced in the mid to late first century BC (about 60 to 20 BC). In terms of date, the e…

Description of Find: The coins range in date from AD 251-279. With the exception of the very rare coin of Domitian II (the second recorded example), the group is broadly similar in composition to the many Romano-British coin hoards (at least 200 so far recorded) buried in the aftermath of the breakaway Gallic Empire. The Gallic empire, whose capital was at the city of Trier but which had held dominion over Britain, was established in AD 260 and reconquered by the legitimate ('central') emperor Aurelian in AD 274. Summary by reign: Central Empire Trebonianus Gallus (AD 251-3) 1 V…

Circumstances of Find Found by Messrs D. Philips and B. Plason with the aid of a metal detector about 70cm below the field surface, 1.12.06.

This excavation yielded more coins and pottery. Watters concluded that the coins had been deposited on the same spot as a Roman rubbish pit or midden; however, due to the fact that the find had already been removed prior to investigation a stratigraphica…
