The piece is 37.25mm long, with a diameter of between 2.86mm to 2.60mm. It weighs 3.27g. The rod is undiagnostic, but its composition is consistent with a Bronze Age date.

A piece of gold wire made from four strands twisted.

The wire piece weighs 7.24g and is 20mm long (unstraightened). The fragment appears to have been cut from a larger piece of wire at one end, although the other end appears to be a break. Analysis shows these wires are made of over 80% gold.
