Record Details

NHER Number:18180
Type of record:Find Spot
Name:Roman or medieval objects


Metal detecting recovered a group of Roman or medieval objects from a filled-in hollow. A fragment of chain with circular links was wrapped around two penannular bracelets and a wire circlet which was closed by a twisted wire. The soil used to fill the hollow had been washed through a sieve in a carrot machine so the objects may not have been originally deposited together.
