Evening All,
A few bits I need a bit of help with please - the brooch fragment (?) has signs of a bit of enamel but i'm not sure what part of the brooch it is or what type.... and I am presuming the ring is a finger ring but when I first unearthed it I thought it looked too smooth and modern to be one...
Not sure about the Roman - Magnentius? And I think the remaining one may be a harness pendant though it looks to have a bit of a rim ion the reverse side... might it be a lid of sorts?
Many thanks in advance for any knowledge - much appreciated!
All the B
Alexander

By gor, you're on a roll, chap :thumbsup:

Agree with Magnentius and my first thought was along the lines of Easy's, except I thought maybe Roman seal box lid. Everything on that table has age to it - well done :thumbsup:

Isn’t it too small for a box seal lid? My immediate thought was either the inside part of one of those funny buckles with the round bit in the middle or part of a composite strap end.

Not sure though but some extra thoughts for you to consider :D

P.S. loving that ring!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Thanks Cath, as I said to Ian its a tricky one... I love the ring too though it is very new looking there is hardly any of the wear corrosion you'd expect to see... do you think its a modern one?

I'm amazed no one is mentioning the ring! Amazing intaglio ring!
What is the fine detail on the bezel?
I would be made up with a Roman ring like that! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

It is Roman isn’t it :thumbsup: This ring fragment is a very similar high domed type https://finds.org.uk/database/artefacts ... /id/933446

Edit: and here’s a full one https://finds.org.uk/database/artefacts ... /id/915312

Thanks Mucky,
Do you think it is Roman? It is very smooth and in such good condition, no bronze disease or chipping, Im wondering if it can possibly be that old?! No detail on the bezel at all ....its obvs missing its stone or whatever...
