Object type: COIN HOARD
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A coin hoard comprising 44 Iron Age staters of the 'Norfolk Wolf' Uninscribed Icenian JB type. These were found scattered in what appear to have been two groups over a relatively small area, the first group in November 2012 and the second in ?March 2013. If two hoards were concealed, however, these must surely be two part of one main deposit; the two groups of coins share die-links as well as being of the same type. All of the South Norfolk coins are struck from the same rather pale debased gold, implying a date of production some years after the beginning of the Norfolk Wolf serie…

Object type: LUNULA
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
The lunula is in two parts and nearly complete, only missing one of the circular terminals. The object is made of gold and so the precious metal content is more than 10%. The lunula is semi-circular in plan although both parts have been folded. There is one part which does not have a terminal and it is this section which is less folded making the semi-circular shape more obvious. The widest section of the lunula is where the two pieces have broken apart and then the object tapers towards the terminals. The section which still has a circular terminal is more severely folded and ther…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Roman gold finger-ring. The hoop consists of a flattened ribbed strip which expands to openwork triangular shoulders decorated with inturned peltas flanking a central serrated rib topped by a pellet. The shoulders support an oval box setting with remains of a pinkish coloured substance, probably adhesive for a gem which is now missing. The ring is rather squashed. Discussion: although no exact parallel can be cited, a similar ring with openwork shoulders was found at the Roman fort of Vechten in the Netherlands (Henkel 1913, no. 251). The ring is of Giraud type 3 E/F. Date: c. t…
