County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Late Bronze Age, gold penannular ring. The penannular ring has a roughly oval cross-section, the inner surface being flattened. The terminals are flat. The ring has alternate stripes of yellow and paler gold; this decorative banding has been considerably worn on each face and on the angles of the flattened inner surface. Examination of the surfaces of the terminals indicates that the piece probably comprises a gold wrapping over a core of different material; in such cases this is frequently copper alloy. The presence of a base metal core was subsequently confirmed in the laboratory.…

Complete gold composite penannular ring of Middle Bronze Age date (1300 BC - 1150 BC). The ring is a tri-partite composite type. The three elements are lightly C-shaped in cross-section and have apparently been soldered together. Each of the elements is about 3mm in width. The item falls into the category of Bronze Age composite rings which have clear associations with twisted bar ornaments, onto which they can be threaded.

A complete gold penannular composite bi-partite ring of Middle Bronze Age date (1300 BC - 1100 BC). Diameter: 10.5mm. Weight: 9.0g. Treasure case no. 2008 T76. Each ring is sub-circular in section and attached to each other along their lengths before finishing in a plain uniform terminal. There is no evidence for further decoration. These sub-circular sectioned composition penannular rings are mainly dated to the centuries 1300-1100 BC. Similar finds are known from the Stretham hoard, Cambridgeshire and from Haxey, Lincolnshire (Eogan 1994, 59, fig. 21, no. 4 and fig. 22, no. 1)…

A crumpled and distorted penannular gold ring of Late Bronze Age date (1000 BC - 800 BC). Treasure case no. BM2006 T95. Diameter 19mm. Weight 1.21g. The object consists of two face-plates joined by a flat strip of gold to form a triangular cross-section. The joins were soldered but have largely sprung apart, although the soldered join remains intact at each end. Each face-plate is composed of thirteen gold wires soldered together concentrically.

Gold foil plated ring with silvery gold wire inlaid into the gold foil. The ring has a diameter of 15.5 mm and it is sub-square or sub-circular in cross-section, measuring 5 mm deep and 5 mm wide; the faces are most flattened near to the terminals. The ends of the ring butt right up against each other and are joined by corrosion from the core. A copper-alloy core is suggested by green corrosion products in two places, both on the interior surface of the ring; behind the terminals, and where the gold sheath has cracked on the opposite side from the terminals. Further damage to the gold…

Penannular gold ring made from twisted wires. There is an area of deformation or breakage to the wires in the centre of the ring. This is characteristic of the ring being opened and closed over a period of time. Although the ring looks to be possibly ancient, nothing about its form, design or manufacture is recognisable from a particular period. The results of metal analysis at the British Museum could also suggest an ancient origin.

Penannular gold ring comprising a gold covering over a base metal core; this is usually a copper alloy. The piece has fairly fine stripes, probably of yellow and paler gold, but this decorative effect is extremely worn and heavily stained red-brown. The central area and gap are plugged with corrosion products which also form an excrescence on one side of the gap. External diameter 20x18mm; internal diameter about 7mm; width of gap about 2mm; breadth 7mm; weight 13.86 grams. Rings of this type date to circa 1150-750 BC.

A Bronze Age gold penannular ring. The object comprises two round-sectioned penannular rings joined together. The presence of solder could not be detected by analysis but this does not preclude the use of the technique. The flat-faced ends show slight central dimples. Dimensions and metal content: Maximum diameter: 15mm; maximum width: 7mm, width of gap: 1mm; weight: 10.59g. X-ray fluorescence analysis conducted at the British Museum indicated an approximate gold content of 79 per cent.

A small Late Bronze Age penannular ring of fat `D' section, the flatter face facing inwards. The object appears to be made by folding sheet gold over a core of another material, probably of copper. Exterior surfaces are relatively well smoothed, but the interior and the terminal faces are less well finished, such that folds and crimps remain clear. Dimensions and metal content: Diameter: 15.2 x 13.9mm; weight: 4.4g. X-ray fluorescence analysis conducted at the British Museum indicated an approximate gold content of 78 per cent for the cover.

Penannular gold ring having narrow stripes of yellow and paler gold, this decorative effect very worn especially around each face. The paler (more silver-rich) stripes have blackish tarnish. Visible green corrosion products, and its light weight, suggest that the ring is one of those comprising a gold covering over a copper alloy core (tested: see scientific report). External diameter 29-27mm; breadth 7.5mm; internal diameter 5.6mm; weight 11.6 grams. Composition The analysis says that the gold bands on the ring are 75-77% gold, 19-21% silver and 4-6% copper, with the paler bands t…

A 5-coil gold penannular ring, cut at each terminal. Each coil is made individually from a solid gold wire. The wire is circular in section. In addition to being cut, the ring has been damaged due to bending, with two of the wires separating from the rest and bending at different angles. This damage indicates that the coils were probably heated and then pressed together along their lengths, as there is a slight flattening of the coils along the lengths revealed. For comparisons, see 2005 T495.

Penannular gold ring of subcircular section, with decorative banding in yellow and paler gold (Treasure case 2004 T502). The silver-rich stripes particularly have an etched appearance; examination by a Colchester Museums conservator suggested that the find had been cleaned after discovery. Analysis suggests that the ring is solid (ie does not have a base metal core). It has a dimeter of 18mm, is 6.2mm thick, has a 3.5mm gap between the terminals and weighs 14.35g. Penannular gold rings of this type are assigned to the late Bronze Age, c.1150-750 BC.
