Treasure reference number 2017 T1015: a gold band of unknown date.

The hoop measures 3mm in width and 2.2mm in thickness, It is 2.16g in weight.

A fragment of a gold ingot. One end is rounded and worn, and the other shows signs of a clear break. There are no diagnostic features which might provide an indication of its likely age. It was shown to curators of the Roman and Early Medieval collections at the British Museum, which cover the dates that most ingots reported under the Treasure Act are thought to be from, but both agreed that although the ingot appeared to be fairly old, it was undateable.

Treasure Number: 2016 T176 Period: Undiagnostic Description: Gold finger-ring. Dimensions: Diameter: 15mm - 24mm Width: 5mn Discussion: The ring was analysed by several specialists at the British Museum and it was found to be too undiagnostic. Chronologically it could not be attributed to the Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman, Early Medieval, Medieval or Post-Medieval periods. Conclusion: Due to the undiagnostic nature of the find it cannot be securely dated to pre-1716 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

A gold fragment of an artefact of an undiagnostic date. It is in the form of a penannular wire loop which appears to have been hammered to shape and may have originally been circular but has been crushed and appears to have been deliberately cut at both ends. It seems likely that it is a jewellery fragment and could be a crushed ring fragment or off an ear ring. It is possibly Roman as it was found adjacent to an amount of silver denarii and Roman pottery. However it is undiagnostic and cannot be securely dated to any period therefore it does not classify as treasure. The length is 20…

A gold finger-ring with a stone setting and filigree decoration. The finger-ring has been made by cutting out its shape from a sheet of gold.

Fragment of a gold bar or ingot, sub-square in plan and lozenge-shaped in profile and section, that has been worked on an anvil and swaged down with a hammer to stretch it out to a thin fine edge on one side. The opposite edge that is parallel has been chiseled off to create a stepped edge and has been separated from another piece. The two other sides, which are more concave in plan, have also broken off a longer strip, may have cracked due to flaws still visible in the metal. There are swage marks on both faces of the fragment which also have cracks within them and evidence of delami…

Gold offcut. Strip of probably beaten gold sheet of thickness 0.3-0.7mm with cut edges and tapering towards narrower cut ends. The strip bears traces of about sixteen folds between its ends, though is now bent at only three of these sites. Accompanying material was of Roman date, c.80-350, and the object is accordingly to be submitted to the Treasure process at the finder's request, reference TBC. It is acknowledged that, without analysis to suggest its composition, the form alone is difficult to date, and might most often be expected to come from an assemblage of Roman to Early Medie…
