A parcel of folded gold strips or ribbons of probable Bronze Age date. The parcel appears to comprise two separate strips of differing lengths. The shorter has been folded once and the longer has six folds. The shorter fragment has a rounded terminal with a raised edge and measures 8.91mm in width. There are no signs of additional decoration. Discussion: This may be a ribbon form bracelet or similar adornment which has been scrapped and folded for remelting.

An incomplete strip of decorated gold, of probable Bronze Age dating (c. 2150 BC to c. 1150 BC).

Two fragments of apparently originally-joining gold band or ribbon dating to the Middle to Late Bronze Age (c. 1600-800 BC). Both fragments are parallel-sided and of rectangular shape, the smaller fragment having a jagged break at either end and the longer having one jagged break and one straight cut. Both are slightly crumpled. The fragments are decorated on one face with fourteen raised ribs and corresponding grooves. The long edges of each also appear a little folded-over in places. The opposite faces are plain. Discussion: The incised linear decoration of the strip can be par…

Gold Ribbon. Penannular fragment of gold foil or thin sheet with a border along its edges and at one end, and decorated with three densely billeted longitudinal ribs in relief. One end of the object is lost, and a crack runs across what remains near its mid point. This probably falls into a class of personal ornaments for the hair or ears; WAW-COC0B3 provides a class parallel. Suggested date: Middle to Late Bronze Age, 1300-800 BC. In view of its age and material this object is to be submitted to the Treasure process, Treasure reference 2014 T534.. Length (as found): 12.4mm, Width:…

Chased gold ribbon ornament, folded in antiquity, perhaps to produce a bead if originally cylindrical or wrapped around leather, textile or hair to create a decorative toggle, tag or 'tress-ring'. The ribbon is only 2 mm thick, and if unfolded would be semi-circular in plan with one edge deliberately and symmetrically rounded and the other edge straight. The straight edge seems not to have been sheared off from something longer, but instead has been evenly and neatly cut to create the size that was needed. The maker has used a sharp chisel or a tool like a modern chasing punch to crea…

A fragment of gold, possibly from a bracelet or torc surviving as an undecorated oval/ellipse shaped band that tapers to the shoulders of probable terminals that may have been broken (the breaks are not conclusive). The terminals appear to have been twisted prior to the purported breaks (possibly in the process of breaking them). The band has several bends and distortions and it is not clear what the original profile of the band would have been. There are a number of scuffs and striations to both surfaces. Possible small hammer markings can be seen, particularly on one side of the ban…
