A gold Post-Medieval finger-ring with external relief decoration. The decoration consists of a delicate geometric design, which may have once held enamel. The interior of the finger-ring bears the inscription 'A FRENDES GYFT' in upper case.

Milton under Wychwood gold stater hoard All five coins are early uninscribed Iron Age gold staters of the so-called "Chute" or "British B" type, produced in c. 80-60 BC. The type is published in the standard catalogue of Iron Age coins: Cottam et al 2010, Ancient British Coinage, no 746. Coins of this type are most commonly found in the Hampshire-Dorset area, so the present findspot is interesting as it is located beyond this area. All of the coins feature an abstract pattern, derived from a head, on the obverse and a stylised left-facing horse on the reverse. The individual coins are…

A fragment of an ingot or, perhaps more likely, an incomplete piece of goldwork from the production process. Half of the fragment has been hammered into a bar with a relatively regular square cross-section. The end appears to have been cut. The remainder of the fragment has not been as highly worked and is a relatively irregular sub-rectangular shape that tapers away to a thinner cross-section. It is not clear whether this end has been cut or whether it has broken. The more highly worked end of the fragment can be compared with a fragment with rectangular profile from Chalvington with…

Period: No earlier than the 19th century Description: A gold finger-ring from East of Colchester, Essex. The finger-ring has a floral and foliate decoration on the exterior of the hoop. The interior of the hoop is plain. There is a colourless, facetted circular stone in the central setting.
