An incomplete and damaged silver medieval finger ring dating to the 12th century AD. The ring is made from a sheet of silver and in plan the object would be biconcave. The bezel is missing although the wide shoulders are present before narrowing to form the band. There is incised decoration which takes the form of lines which run diagonally across the outer edge of the ring. On the shoulders, these lines are wider apart with shorter lines running between them. There are similar examples on the PAS database, see for example SUR-BCFB42.

An incomplete gilded silver iconographic finger ring dating to the medieval period, c. AD 1400 to 1500. The object has a sub-rectangular bezel with two faces and a triangular section. Each face of the bezel has an inscribed motif which appears to be a crude representation of two figures, probably saints. The shoulders extend from the bezel smoothly and these have a D-shaped section. There is some incised decoration on the shoulders but it is unclear what it was intended to be. The rest of the hoop appears to be smooth and undecorated. Traces of gilding are still present in the inci…

An incomplete, damaged silver finger ring dating to the medieval period. The object is made from a single sheet of silver, 0.68 mm thick, which would be biconvex if flattened.

There are two lateral incised lines across the band either side of the 'bezel' with three deeper lines running between the two collars and shallower, diagonal incisions as decoration. Between the collar and the folded terminals there are …

The ring is circular in plan, complete, and has a D-shaped cross section. Approximately 25% of the outside face of the ring is decorated; the central motif is a crude, incised skull. Either side of the skull there is some incised cross-hatching decoration which terminates in a point in the middle of the width of the band. The point has a star incised at that point. There are some traces of black enamel in the incised decoration although it is likely that there would have been more which is now missing. There is an inscription on the inside face in an italic script which reads Sr John …

A complete gold posy ring dating to the post medieval period. The object is circular in plan and D-shaped in section.

Roman silver ring containing small carved stone intaglio. The ring has a narrow, flattened hoop expanding and thickening towards the shoulders (Henig Type III; Henig 2007, 35-6, Fig.1).

It depicts an anchor with two fish hanging from its crossbar - a common early Christian symbol. XDRF analysis suggests that the principal material is silver with a significant copper content and smaller concentrations of zinc, lead and gold. Birley, E.,1961.'A Christian Monogram From Brough…

A complete gold finger ring dating to the post medieval or modern period. The object is circular in plan and circular in section with no decoration. There are some stamped marks on the inner surface of the ring but these are difficult to decipher. Judy Rudoe of the British Museum says "I cannot decipher the stamped marks inside, and the shape looks recent, so this is one where you say not enough evidence to date pre 1714."
