    Dere Street (Return Part Two!!!Gold)...Back From The Jeweler!!! Updated Pic!!!

    Hello all...

    I am not going to bore you with a long story, if you have been following my recent posts you know were I have been detecting and the finds that have come from this area

    I started the evening recovering my digging spade that I left here Sunday, it was lying right were I had left it managed a couple of Medieval spindle whorls and a few bits of lead, then another Medieval hammered coin of Elizabeth1 (1558-1603) half groat.

    Later on in the evening I moved further down the road to a area that has produced Roman coins, again I had a further four bronze coins but the going was hard.

    The area was becoming shorter by the minute so I moved to the slopes of the spoil heaps and this is were I found my best find, a nice crisp signal and I was flipping over the sandy soil, at first I couldn't see what had given the signal, then I glanced a glint of yellow in a small piece of soil, I picked it up and right in-front of me was a small Gold Ring the colour gave it away as old, a deep buttery yellow Gold.

    The ring is very small (13mm) and obviously made for a child, I am 99% certain that this ring is Roman and was probably made specially for the wearer.

    This ring unfortunately falls under the treasure act and I will have to declare it any way have a look at the pictures if there are any questions I will try and answer SS...Updated... It's now two weeks since I found the ring, and I have just had the ID back by the UK Finds Data Base here's what it says, A Roman Gold finger ring 1st-4th Century, the shank has a broad,flat cross-section that tapers from the front to back. At the front there is an oval bezel made from reposse worked sheet-metal; it depicts a full-faced portraite in releif, surrounded by a raised border. The depiction is unknown, though the subject is almost certainly classical

    Re: Dere Street (Return Part Two!!!Gold)

    I would say that the gold ring is really old and should definatly go on the banner! What age is the gold ring?
