It is decorated by a finely executed double wavy line within a recessed band that rind around the circumference of the ring. The inner surface of the ring is smooth and in places shows signs of wear which may indicate where is has rubbed on a strap.

Cast copper alloy bow brooch of probable late Iron Age or possible early Roman date (300 BC- 100 AD). The brooch is complete. The pin is held by a hinge which is attached to an axis bar. This bar is probably made of iron, due to the large amount of orange staining and corrosion product present around the head of the brooch. The axis bar is contained by semi-cylindrical cover that is formed from the upper part of the brooch being rolled / folded upon itself and hammer welded to the reverse face of the head. The pin is connected to the axis bar through a small slit in this cover. The he…

Cast copper alloy bracelet of unknown age – probably late Iron Age – Roman (100 BC-100 AD). The bracelet is formed from a cast length of copper alloy bar which seems to have been twisted in a vice. The twists for the most part are regular, although a series of stress fractures are evident in a number of places. It is possible that it has been cast – although the mould it was cast from must have been based upon a twisted example. The bracelet is broadly C shaped, with an open edge which is flanked by two bird head like terminals. In cross section is a relative regular oval. The te…

Fragment of a piece of later prehistoric metalwork, most probably a later Iron Age terret ring. The fragment is irregular in plan and cross section; it curves and tapers slightly from a rectangular sectioned bar to an oval section at an angle of less than 30%. If it were from a terret ring this would fit with the transition from base to loop. The patina is a mid brown colour and has substantially laminated revealing the metal beneath which has corroded. The fragment measures 31.2mm length, 8.7mm width and is 6.9mm thick; it weighs 7.31 grams

Silver unit of the Dobunni tribe, provisionally dated to the late Iron Age 20 BC - 50 AD. The unit is similar to Allens classes I and J. Philip de-Jersey, of the Celtic coin index has suggested: The coin (CCI 06.0574) is indeed a Dobunnic type along the lines of Van Arsdell 1135 or 1137 (Hobbs 3003-3005). The two types (corresponding to Allen classes I and J) are almost impossible to tell apart - particularly in this condition - and it's debatable in fact whether there is a valid distinction to be made, since elements of the design seem to overlap the two classifications.

Silver toggle or fitting with globular knop on each side. Narrow body expanding at each end into a globule, creating an overall dumb-bell shape. Globules are of un-uniform size. Copper-alloy and bone examples of similar objects have been dated to the Iron Age, a similar shaped toggle can be found in Read (2005). An Iron Age object of this type is extremely rare. Analysis results of the toggle show that it is 97% silver the rest being copper, with traces of lead and gold; the amount of gold indicates that this toggle is not of Iron Age date, the manufacturing technique correspond…
