Record ID: SUSS-B1B8CE
Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a, cast copper alloy, ring, possibly a bracelet or armlet of Bronze Age date, 2000-900 BC. The fragment is part of a circumferal ring. The breaks in the ring are old, being quite worn and corroded. In cross section the ring is a pointed oval. There is no surface decoration on the piece. The surface is patinated red/green. As the object is incomplete it is difficult to be certain on its date or function, the innumerable uses for rings of all sizes makes them difficult to classify.
