A wrought gold loop on unknown date, but probably Bronze Age. The loop is formed from wrought gold wire (th: 2.57mm) which has been bent into a drop shape. Where the ends cross, the loop has been cut, with evidence for four strikes. One cut put a wedge in the object but did not completely sever it. A second cut severed one end of the loop. The two remaining cuts are both part of the severing of the other end of the loop. The gold is probably a gold-silver alloy. There are no direct comparisons, but similar cutmarks have been observed on Bronze Age gold objects, for example no 25.1 in …

Length of gold rod with octagonal cross-section, bifacially cut at one end, the other end having a plain terminal. The piece is bent. Length 85mm; thickness 5mm; weight 2.7 grams. Identification: Analogies occur in the Bronze Age hoard of 42 gold pieces from Fitzleroi Farm, W. Sussex which included a number of elements including small complete rings and fragments of other ornament types. Octagonal- section rods were present. The analysis would be acceptable for a Bronze Age date with the proviso that the silver content is rather high. Given the lack of any datable association it is no…

Fragment of a plain gold rod. The gold rod is circular in section and is rounded at one end and broken at the other. The surface is smooth and only slightly pitted. There is no decoration though some evidence for small hammer marks on the rod. Due to it's undiagnostic nature it does not represent Treasure under the terms of the Treasure Act (1996).

Workflow stage: Published Find published
Short length of distorted gold rod of approximately circular cross-section. Both ends appear to have been cut using a chisel. Diameter of rod 5mm; weight 3.21 grams. Possibly a distorted solid penannular ring, the diameter of which would have been approximately 13mm. Should this be the case the piece could fit morphologically into the category of Bronze Age penannular rings. These are generally dated to the later Bronze Age, circa 1150-750 BC, but the small, solid variety could well be a little earlier. However, the high silver content of this piece suggests that it post-dates the Bro…
