A pellet or ingot of gold weighing 1.27g. The rounded pellet itself is not diagnostic as to date and thus was not submitted as potential Treasure. A similar pellet, found nearby, was recorded as SUR-6020EC . An Iron Age date is possible in view of finds of coins of this date from the general area.

Treasure Case 2005 T392 Date: Late 9th-11th century Description: A gold ingot of short, sub-rectangular section, the top and bottom faces hammered flat and there are also hammer marks on the sides. It would have been cast in a simple open mould either roughly cut in stone, or perhaps drawn in the earth with a stick. Discussion: Viking period gold ingots are more unusual than silver. A large number of silver ingots of the Viking period have been found mainly in hoards in England, Ireland and the Netherlands, as well as in Scandinavia. Silver ingots from the region of the Danelaw were…

A fragment of a possible gold ingot weighing 3.56g. The ingot, which is a dull yellow-brown, has an L-shaped section and the surviving original edge of the object is stepped in three ledges. The broken edges are very ragged. Multiple parallel lines on the hollow side may suggest a more recent date.

Treasure reference no. 2016 T980: a gold ingot. The ingot is sub-rectangular in plan, and has been snipped at both ends. The underside is smooth and flat, while the upper side is slightly domed, being made of a series of flat, rectangular panels or hammer marks. This item was found in cultivated land within a concentration of objects dating to the early Anglo-Saxon period. A smaller number of Middle Saxon artefacts and coins were also found within this concentration. A possible date of circa 500-850 is therefore given for this ingot. Length: 17.4mm, Width: 6.43mm, Thickness: 2.07mm, …

Gold ingot. A thin [c.0.8mm] strip of beaten gold, neatly folded four times to produce a small rectangular billet. The beating of precious metal into ingot forms is particularly associated with the Vikings, and in the context of the Torksey area, with an attested encampment and numerous associated finds, an ascription to that period seems credible. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1050. In view of its material and suspected date this object is to be submitted to the Treasure process, ref. TBC. Length: 10.8mm, Width: 7.4mm, Thickness: 3.2mm, Weight: 1.00gms

A possible Early Medieval (Viking) gold ingot/hack gold, dated to the mid 9th to mid 11th Centuries, AD850-1050. The ingot is roughly sub-rectangular in shape with one end rounded and the other, flat. There is a flattened facet on the upper and lower edges towards the flat end. Along one side edge there are approximately 7 small, irregular, pointed spurs. The surface is mostly smooth but there are areas that are rough (bubbled appearance) and irregular. Dimensions: length: 27.89mm; width: 7.50mm; thickness: 4.77mm; weight: 9.33g. A similar object is recorded on the PAS database: DEN…

County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A short section of a flat, rectangular-sectioned gold ingot, trapezoidal in plan. Shows clear evidence of having been chiselled at both of the narrow ends. This object bears some similarity to small flat ingots used in the Viking period, and often broken up for the purposes of trade. However, the form is undiagnostic, and it could also date to an earlier or later period.

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. Dimensions: Weight: 2.6g Thickness: 4mm Length: 8mm

Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete, rounded droplet of gold or gold alloy, probably casting waste. The droplet is relatively smooth, with a porous, unworked surface. It measures 8.6mm long, 7.6mm wide and 5.4mm thick, and weighs 3.3g. Conclusion: An Iron Age date is possible for this object, since five Iron Age gold coins, all quarter staters and mostly from the mid-first century BC, have been found in surrounding fields (SUR-4EF070, SUR-95F112, SUR-F84295, SUR-960B33, SUR-BC0D8C). However, the undiagnostic nature of the pellet itself means that it cannot be securely dated as over 300 years old. As such, a…

Thin fragment of gold ingot of probably ancient (more than 300 years old) but otherwise uncertain Description: The ingot has been hammered relatively thin and has one rounded end. The other, rougher and probably deliberately cut end was likely severed by a blow from a chisel. Measurements: L.: 17mm W.: 9mm Thickness: 1.8mm Wt.: 2.81g Discussion: Dr. Richard Hobbs Weston Curator of Roman Britain, Britain, Europe & Prehistory, The British Museum comments that the object likely dates to more than 300 years and contains more than 10% precious metal and therefore likely qualifies as …

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 ingot fragment. Cast round-ended fragment of gold with upper and lower sides flattened by hammering. This form is characteristic of Viking-Age bullion in both silver and gold, though the reduction of precious metal to ingot form might have occurred at any period. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. In view of its material and possible age this object is to be submitted to the Treasure process, ref. 2015 T430. Length: 8.1mm, Width: 6.1mm, Thickness: 4.8mm, Weight: 2.11gms.

A possible gold ingot. A tapering sub-rectangular piece of gole with a sub-angualr cross section: Nell Wilkin and Mafalda Raposo of the British Mueum comment: Due to the undiagnostic nature of the find it cannot be securely dated to pre-1717 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

Fragment of gold ingot. A segment of a bar or strip of gold. The piece is angular and tapers in one direction in terms of thickness (from 3.81 mm to 1.51 mm) and tapers in the opposite direction in its width (8.18 mm to 6.55 mm). The break at the thinner, wider end appears to be the result of a cut. The surface all have slight ripples and marks. Date: Uncertain Dimensions: 8.54 mm x 8.18 mm x 3.81 mm Weight: 1.80 g Neil Wilkin of the British Museum has defined this as undiagnostic in terms of date.

Surface metal analysis conducted at the British Museum indicated an approximate gold content for the ingot of 43%, and 29% for silver the remainder being copper; the ingot weighs 39.0 grams. The ingot is bar-shaped and hammered to a square section with rounded edges; length, 61mm; width, 9mm; thickness, 8mm. There is a nick in the centre of one edge and there are both fine and coarse abrasions on the surfaces. The metal content of the ingot is not particularly consistent with it being from the Viking period, but would not be out of place for either the Iron Age or Medieval …
