Record ID: SOM-8F3994
Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published

There are no shoulders as such and the bezel is only slightly thicker than the hoop. As with such artefacts the bit protrudes at right angles to the bezel such that the key element lay flat on the finger. The bit begins with a trapezoidal base that is decorated with a pair of transverse grooves. Above this is a recess each side to a narrow waist before the main sub-triangular upper element. The tria…
