Inside the almond-shaped motif is a further 'S'-shaped spiral of filigree infilled in each 'S' curve with a gold bead.

County: Gloucestershire

A gold finger-ring dating to the Viking period. The ring is composed of three tapering, square-sectioned rods twisted together, which are thicker at the front, while at the back the ends are hammered flat together into a plain, narrow band; diameter, 27mm (max); width, 26mm. Gold rings of twisted type from the British Isles and Scandinavia are dated from the late Saxon/Viking periods into the early Middle Ages, from the late 9th century into the 12th, although more usually their rods are of circular section. But rings of square-section gold rods (usually two) do also occur in the Bri…

A worn and melted gold disc, probably a Gallo-Belgic A stater. Dimensions: Thickness: 1.9mm; Diameter: 24.2mm; Weight 7.60g Discussion: This item was submitted for consideration as potential Treasure because it was found very close to a previously recorded Roman gold aureus of Trajan (BH-80B838). However, given that the coin is likely to be a Gallo-Belgic A stater dating to the 2nd Century BC, the proximity of its findspot to the gold aureus is thought to be coincidental rather than representational of a group of coins lost at the same time. It therefore falls outside the criteria fo…

A Roman polygonal gold finger-ring, formed of a circular hoop, with seven irregular lozenge-shaped facets of similar dimensions, all plain and undecorated. The surface of this ring is slightly roughly finished. It can be classified as Henig's type IX. A similar finger-ring from 'Crawley area', Hampshire, was reported through the Treasure Act (Treasure Annual Report 2005/6, 64; ref. 133/2006 T150). Another similar ring came from the Chichester area of W.Sussex, 2011T861 [HAMP-F7A356] The age of this ring, and the fact that it is made substantially of gold, means that it qualifies as …

3 fragments of gold bar, flattened by hammering. Lengths 29, 25 and 9mm. 1 fragment of gold chopped from a thin round-sectioned bar, distorted to an 'S' shape, length 29mm. 1 very pitted and eroded gold fragment, length 15mm. 1 fragment of round-sectioned, tapering brass bar, length 30mm. Conclusion: The gold fragments could be ancient but diagnostic features are insufficient to attribute to any chronological or cultural context. Due to the undiagnostic nature of the objects they cannot be securely dated to pre-1713 and as such fall outside the provisions of the Treasure A…
