Copper alloy possible finger ring fragment. A rectangular-section band, expanding in its width from a minimum width of 3.5mm towards an aperture of width 5mm which is here taken to be the sunken setting for a rounded stone [now lost]. This interpretation presupposes the loss of about one half of the band, which was subsequently flattened and straightened - probably fortuitously - to achieve its current form. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1900 Length (as found): 29.7mm, Width: 7.3mm, Thickness (at bezel): 3.4mm, Weight: 1.69gms

A late Early Medieval copper alloy finger ring possibly dating to c. 850-1066 AD. The bezel is flat and lozenge shaped with punched dot decoration.
