Description: The head of a two-part copper alloy pin capped in gold, dating to the 16th century. The head is spherical and hollow, decorated on the outer surface.

On either side of the band is a central dome with five domes surrounding. At the peak of each dome is a recess with a small blue stone inlay, except for one dome at the base which has a larger perforation from the pin shank to enter and another in the opposing dome where it is likely the pin wo…

A Post-Medieval gold finger-ring of likely 18th -19th century in date. Description: The ring is thin and has a band that is D-section. Inscribed in lower case on the inside: "In love abide till death divide", then more crudely incised with initials ES. Dimensions: 21mm in diameter,, 4mm thick and weight 5.8g Discussion: The use of lower case lettering and its thin band suggests a 18th century date. Thus the find cannot be safely dated before 1716 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

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.

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…
