Gold annular brooch. Cast D-section band with a constriction for a cast tapered pin which is looped around the band. The convex display face bears a finely defined chevron motif, with V-shaped figures with internally indented edges confining strands of closely juxtaposed pellets, possibly in overlapping doubled rows. These were presumably stamped to achieve the fine definition observed here. The chevrons nest one within the next in a series originating and ending at the pin seat. The plain back appears lightly bevelled towards the central aperture. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1350 …

Gold bracelet fragment. Cast pentagonal-section strip, broken at one end and flattened to spatulate form at the other. The section is angular, with two low and probably worn facets on what is taken to have been the display or outer face, producing a gently keeled appearance. This is carried along the object to the spatulate end, which may therefore be regarded as a deliberately fashioned terminal to a penannular and probably symmetrical form, with its equivalent now lost. The object is now curved with two sharper and one more gentle bends, with two cracks near the latter. The finder ki…

Gold bracteate. A disc of beaten gold bearing an embossed [positive - i.e. in low relief] design within a stamped [negative] border, and retaining a finely billeted rim, now detached at 3 O'clock and broken at 12'O'clock relative to the design. The object also bears a ragged transverse tear extending from 10 O'clock. The central embossed design is obviously derived from the profile diademed imperial bust appearing on late Roman coinage, though with significant adaptations which are deliberately chosen, rather than simple misconstructions of the design. A first departure from the Roman…

Gold brooch.

Gold annular brooch. A tiny but superbly finished annular brooch with a band of plano-convex section.

Gold finger ring. A thin cast band of rectangular section bearing an externally incised inscription. This reads: + E D O + O N : T F + T R A N + A I F A, with heavily seriffed cross potent punctuation and unbarred A's, some with a vertical stroke in the place of the bar. The style of lettering broadly resembles that of the Short Cross coinage of 1180-1247, and probably points to a date in the first half of the 13th century. This reporter cannot venture upon the interpretation of the legend, though at this date it is likely to be Latinate. Malcolm Jones kindly comments on the reading as…

Gold finger ring. Posy ring. A cast D-section band, plain externally, but with an internal inscription rendered in angular capitals. The inscription reads: xASxYOVxWILx // with saltires separating words and with two superfluous slashes; the last word has doubled lines forming the I and L and serifs are prominent throughout. The phonetically correct English may point to a 17th-century date. Slightly battered. If the proposed dating were to be sustained, the item would constitute Treasure. It is therefore to be submitted to the Treasure process, ref. 2018 T123. Internal diameter: 15.…
