Gold ornament, probably a bead. The thin sheet of gold had been rolled into a cylindrical shape but has now been unfortunately crushed. It is decorated with sixteen transverse embossed grooves. There is a brown substance, probably soil, inside the crushed ornament. The probable bead is very rare for Britain and Ireland though a necklace of similar beads from Ireland is in the British Museum (BM 1853,0926.2). Although the presence of sheet-working technique and embossed decoration in Britain would suggest an Early-Middle Bronze Age date, parallels in Bronze Final individual burial cr…
