Record ID: NMS-183C7E
Object type: PENANNULAR RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Late Bronze Age penannular ring fragment, or 'ring money'. Sub-oval-section, slightly flattened on the upper and lower face, with a copper alloy core and outer banded gold sheath. The banding appears lighter with an almost silvery colour on the outer face and a darker, slightly blackened appearance on the inner face. Broken at both ends with possible traces of having been cut or chopped. The exposed copper alloy surface is fairly corroded, suggesting ancient breaks. See NMS-5D0C86 for a similar complete example. Weight 5.7g. Width 8.5mm. Surviving diameter 17.5mm.

Object type: HOARD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Late Bronze Age hoard described by the finder as being found in an area 'the size of a table top'.

A fragment from the mouth of a Late Bronze Age socketed axe head with a shallow and not well defined moulding at the rim and broken across a second shallow moulding. The breaks are irregular and unabraded but not recent. Now separate, but within socket of another axe (No. 4) when found. It has not been possible to assign the axe to a typological …
