An incomplete copper-alloy possible terret ring of uncertain type of Iron Age or early Roman date, c.200BC-AD50. The terret fragment is curved indicating a D-shaped or sub-circular shape and is oval in section. There are two integral oval knobs projecting from the outer curve of the terret. These could indicate that the terret is of the dropped-bar type, where the bar itself has broken away. However, the terret thins after one of the projections, possibly forming a bar, which suggests that the adjacent projection could be part of a collar and the second projection could be decorative, …

Large copper-alloy terret ring of Iron Age date (c. 200 BC - 43 AD). The object is roughly D-shaped and circular in section.
