This is a wonderful example of a Middle Bronze Age coiled finger ring, dating to c. 1500 -1150 B.C. A similar example was found in the Ribble Valley and recorded as LANCUM-A4E905, and NMS-300286. The finger ring is very similar to a number of coiled rings found in a Middle Bronze Age hoard found in Sussex, recorded under SUSS-C5D042. It is similar to Middle to Late Bronze Age coiled bronze finger ring dating to 1500BC, which is part of a Bronze Age hoard discovered a short distance inland from Black Rock, in East Brighton.
This example is in excellent excavated condition, complete with a nice dark olive green patina.
