Gold posy ring of flattened D cross-section, and slightly mishapen.

Gold iconographic finger-ring of late medieval or very early post-medieval date. It has a flat oval longitudinal bezel, engraved with the images of St Catherine holding a sword in her right hand. A wheel (symbol of her martyrdom) protrudes from behind her left side. The hoop is decorated on the shoulders and sides with sprigs.

The rough surface of the background to the bezel suggest that this may have been enamelled, but only cleaning of this area and the decorativ…

Ninety-one Roman denarii, principally of the first and second centuries A.D. As found the coins are in differing conditions, some fresh, some encrusted with corrosion products, perhaps the result of contact with vegetable matter in the form of grass which appears to have been deliberately included within the container of the coins. A detailed study must therefore await conservation of the coins. The coins were contained within the remains of a pottery vessel The latest coin in the hoard is a denarius of Marcus Aurelius, dating to his eighteenth tribunician year, or A.D. 163-4. T…

Gold ring in the form of a plain broad band of flattened D cross section. The inner face is engraved with legend X I LYKE MY CHOYS in Roman capitals. The hoop has an internal diameter of 19mm; external diameter of 21.6mm; band width 5.7mm; band thickness of 0.9mm; weight 6.41g. The finger ring from Llangunllo has a form which is hard to date, existing in the fifteenth century, and continuing up to the present.
