Late Iron Age to early Roman or Romano British copper alloy knobbed terret ring dating to between c50 BC and c150 AD. It is roughly D-shaped.

It is oval in cross-section and tapers gradually towards the upper part of the terret. At the apex of the loop there is a central collared knob between two further collars.

A cast copper alloy stud dating to the later Iron Age or early Roman period. The stud has a flat circular head with a central ring which appears to have slight traces of blue enamel.
