Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy annular ring, circular in plan and in section. The database has many examples of bronze rings of this size, and the consensus seems to be that they are harness fittings, probably strap junction fittings. ‚ÄčOne example, BM-6EEF3D, although incomplete and corroded, is the same size and was found with Iron Age and Roman pottery, metalwork and coins, and is dated from 50 BC to AD 100. Another complete example from Dorset DOR-E9EE18 is almost identical in size, weight and material. This ring is well patinated and shows slight signs of wear, where one side of the ring is t…

A complete stone spindle whorl of uncertain date. The object is made of a flint. It has been shaped through covering, scaled retouching on one side and the edges. The other side retains its natural, smooth surface until it meets the covering, scaled retuching at the edges. A sub-circular central perforation is present.

Object type: RING
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Oxfordshire

A cast copper alloy ring of probable Iron Age or Early Roman date, c. BC 800- AD 50. There is some debate as to the function of these decorated rings, in that some have been described as personal ornaments associated with articles of dress whilst others have described them as being associated with harness or strap fittings. The ring is complete and is circular in plan and sub-oval (lentoid) in cross section.Both sides of the ring is decorated with recessed dots, probably cast rather than punched; 26 on one side and c. 31 on the other. There is no other decoration. The ring measures 23.…

County: East Riding of Yorkshire

A complete stone bead of uncertain date. The bead is oval with a very fine central circular perforation running through its length. The fineness of the perforation could suggest machine manufacture, meaning that the bead would have a Modern date of c.AD 1900-present, although the lack of contextual evidence means that this cannot be stated with any certainty. The stone is black in colour with white, mottled discolouration on its outer surface. Slight fragmentation at the narrow ends of the bead reveal the black core of the stone.
