A probable incomplete cast flanged terret (length: 45.8mm; width: 23mm; thickness at lip: 6.9mm; weight: 17.29g). Of crescent shape, this probable terret has the remains of a continuous scroll-pattern with red enamel surviving in places inside the scroll loops as well as outside in the La Tene style, noted in Bushe-Fox's 'Fourth Report on the Excavations of the Roman Fort at Richborough, Kent, 1949, as the 'champleve technique'. There is a slight lip/ rim protruding out from the front of the artefact at the bottom below the scroll-work and cresent platform, forming a border for what…

A small sherd of late Iron Age pottery (35mm x 41mm; thickness: 8.5mm; weight: 14.00g). A fairly smooth, hard and thick probable sand-tempered fabric with large inclusions throughout and protruding out of the surface. The sherd is a light brown/ red colourwhile the inner surface is almost black in places. This sherd is very similar to examples found during excavations at Gussage All Saints in Dorset, particularly the type classified as Fabric A/C (Wainwright, 1979, pages 49-51). From these other examples, this sherd may have come from a bead rim vessel or flat rimmed barrel jar. …

A small sherd of Iron Age pottery (28.5mm x 27mm, thickness: 9.5mm; weight: 5.54g). A hard and fairly thick probable sand-tempered fabric with a smooth fracture and a small even distribution of quartzite throughout. The outer and interior surfaces are fairly rough and a dark grey, black colour. This sherd is very similar to examples found during excavations at Gussage All Saints in Dorset that have been classed as Fabric A/B. From these other examples, we could suggest that this sherd may have come from a bead rim vessel or a flat rimmed barrel jar. In general, these vessels were…

A cast copper alloy simple terret (length: 40mm; width:58mm; thickness: 11mm; weight: 36.97g) with an oval hoop and sub-circular or D-shaped cross-section, with a simple but substantial neck moulding at the junction with the bar which protrude inwards. An unusual and rather abnormal feature (not yet parallelled) is the additional prong/ bar that begins to stretch out by 12mm where the strapping would have wrapped around the attachment bar of the terret. Therefore, if not a casting flaw, the use of this feature may have been to cover the terret bar fixing. The overall conditi…

Object type: RING
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Solihull
Workflow stage: Published Find published
The ring is sub-lozenge shape in section. The width of the ring (5.81mm) is wide compared to the diameter of the central hole (11.94mm). The surface is pitted and the patina intermittent. This patina is 'heavy' and therefore suggests well established. Due to the pitting it is difficult to see signs of wear.
