An incomplete copper-alloy spiral ring probably of Bronze Age period, dating to c. 1500.1150 BC. It is circular in plan and it is formed by three coils of an oval cross-sectioned metal wire; both ends are broken and worn. The surface is very abraded and heavily pitted. A similar object has been recorded on the PAS database as HAMP-7556B3 and SF-761FF6 , see also examples of spiraloid rings in the Near Lewes hoard (SUSS-C5D042) and the Ockham hoard (SUR-B41DB6), both Middle Bronze Age in date. The function of this object is uncertain, given that it is too large to be a finger ring and …

An incomplete cast copper-alloy spiral ring of probable later Prehistoric date, perhaps Middle Bronze Age (c. 1500-1150 BC) and possibly of the 'ornament horizon'. It is circular in plan, with worn breaks at each end where the rest of the object has broken away. It consists a circular sectioned piece of metal which has been coiled into a spiral of around two and a quarter turns. Preserved in good condition with a deep brown patina characteristic of much Bronze Age metalwork, it measures 36.57mm in diameter, c. 4.25mm thick at its midpoint, and weighs 23.23g. A similar object has been …

A copper alloy finger ring of Middle Bronze Age date (c. 1400-1150 BC). The ring consists of a single copper alloy bar, oval in cross-section which has been coiled to create the finger ring. It now has one complete loop and two incomplete loops. It appears to be complete, although both terminals exhibt traces of damage. The ring has a smooth dark green patina, with occasional pitting. This example is similar to a number of coiled rings found in a Middle Bronze Age hoard found in Sussex, recorded under SUSS-C5D042. Similar rings have been found in the Mecklenburg area of North Germany …

A copper-alloy finger ring of Bronze Age date, 1500-1150 BC. The finger ring is made from a coiled rod of sub-square section, with approximately two coils remaining. One end is 'finished', but the other had a sharp break, indicating that at least one coil is lost. See also SUSS-C5D042; LANCUM-A4E905; NMS-300286; and SWYOR-3FF370.

Cast copper coiled finger ring probably dating from the Middle Bronze Age, that is c. 1500 -1150BC. The finger ring is very similar to a number of coiled rings found in a Middle Bronze Age hoard found in Sussex, recorded under SUSS-C5D042. It is similar to Middle to Late Bronze Age coiled bronze finger ring dating to 1500BC, which is part of a Bronze Age hoard discovered a short distance inland from Black Rock, in East Brighton. It has been coiled in three complete turns and decorated on the outer edge. Similar rings have been found in the Mecklenburg area of North Germany suggesting …

A large copper alloy finger ring formed from a coiled rod. The rod is sub-circular in section with sharply cut ends. The ring has a diameter of 33.9mm, is 13.2mm tall over three coils of the rod, and the rod is 4.9mm thick. There is an even light green and brown patina on all surfaces. This large ring could have been used as currency and probably dates from the Bronze Age or Iron Age. There is a very close parallel in the Yorkshire Museum Boynton Collection (YORYM 2006.1110) which is from Cyprus. There are also similar examples, but larger and described as bracelets, on page 121 of Nic…

Copper alloy finger ring. The hoop has a slightly pointed oval section and is sub-circular in shape. The hoop does not form a single complete circle, but the ends overlap one another and may be broken off so that it is possible that the ring was originally spiral in shape. On both surfaces there is a slightly raised ridge around the hoop. Brown patina.

An incomplete jet or shale possible finger ring. Roughly half of this possible finger ring now survives due to old breaks. This surviving half itself is in two parts, due to a recent glassy looking break. From the surviving part of the ring it is clear that the external diameter is c31mm and the internal diameter is c20.6mm. The cross-section is roughly triangular with a flat circumferencial ridge around the outer face where the third point of a triangle would be. This object is possibly a Roman finger ring, especially as it was found in the plough soil in an area whi…
