Ignore the design, because I'm not showing that for comparison... but compare the back, including the hole running across it. You'll see that same kind of construction through to the medieval period too.

    My thoughts exactly. Good to see you posting Vince. That’s quite a nice haul and indeed, that ring is special.

    Great set of finds, my friend.
