An Iron Age gold stater, attributed to the Southern tribes of the Atrebates or Regini and dating from c. 60-50 BC. Cf.: ABC no. 485, of 'Selsey Two-face' type (Cottam 2010:47). The face of the coin with 'wreath' design is unclear and the other face depicting a triple-tailed horse right with wheel below and charioteer's arms above has been struck high, eliminating the upper portion of the design. However, the remaining detail suggests that this identification is correct. Where the coin has spread at its circumference it is possible that this has exposed that the coin is in fact …

Object type: PENANNULAR RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Northumberland
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete small, gold Penannular ring of Bronze Age date (1150-750 BC). The object is sub-circular and sub-circular in section. There is a narrow gap between the terminals, one of which tapers in slightly while the other is flat ended. The metal is a bright yellow in colour with a smooth patina. The penannular ring belongs to a class of artefact which has been termed 'hair-rings' and 'ring-money' (Taylor 1980; Green 1988; Egan 1994; 1997; Varndell 2001; Hobbs 2003; Meeks et al 2008; O'Connor et al 2008). Their function remains uncertain, although it is likely that they were person…

Sheet gold element, the sheet joined to form a cylindrical hollow form with projecting lobes, separated by engraved grooves, then twisted. A suspension loop added at one end; the remains of a similar loop at the other. The surface has been carefully tooled and worked and may show keying for enamelled decoration, now missing. The object is made from very high carat gold but is very hard to interpret. The large rather crude loop is unusual for a piece of jewellery but the object was clearly designed to be hung and if there was a second loop at the other end it might have formed a cha…

Gold finger ring with a D-shape cross-section hoop. The flat inside is engraved with the inscription 'As god decreed foe wee agreed' with the goldsmiths mark of WC. The outside curved edge is undecorated. Discussion: a goldsmith with the initials WC is recorded on the British Museum database but the lettering style is distantly different to this example. Variations of this inscription are recorded for the 17th to early 18th century, plus the lettering style is consistent with rings of the late 17th century to early 18th century.

Gold finger ring with a D-shape cross-section hoop. The flat inside is engraved with the inscription IN TRUST BE JUST with the makers mark of a conjoined TH. The outside curved edge is undecorated. Discussion: Jude Rudoe has found a similar ring on the British museum database at 1961,1202.414 baring the inscription 'In truste be Juste' and a conjoined TH makers mark of an unknown maker. Although the fingering is not datable from the maker, the lettering style is consistent with rings from the late 17th to early 18th century.
