Treasure Case : 2017 T771 Description: A small, possibly complete gold-alloy ingot of uncertain date. The ingot is a flattened irregular semi-oval, sub-rectangular in cross-section.

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…
