Unusual Bronze Age Hoard Found

4 posts in this topic

An unusual late Bronze Age hoard recently discovered in the west of Cumbria is the first of its kind to be found in the county, it is reported.

Comprising a penannular bracelet and three lock rings, all made of gold, as well as a fragment of copper alloy, the hoard was found by two metal-detectorists, tucked into a small hollow in the limestone bedrock and covered over with a large stone.
Two of the lock rings and the bracelet are stained with organic residue, possibly from something in the soil or something that was placed with or around the objects at the time of their deposition, suggests Stuart Noon, Finds Liaison Officer for Lancashire and Cumbria.

I would try to place it on gramophone and see if something is on it :)

Does it look too good for it's time?

These objects are tiny: the bracelet is about 7cm in diameter and the lockrings are only about 3cm. I thought they were much bigger.

Likely made by the wee folk for a king or other of importance.
