A very similar ring in Benet's book but that one is gold! Same pattern though. If this is a Viking ring it has lost its 'knot' at the back.

When you see a find like that, you can't help wonder at its history and who wore it last...

While ring-and-dot is always something to get the heart racing, you're then faced with the realisation that the design spans many, many years.

Steve's come up with some cracking examples though :thumbsup:
