    I just find it hard to believe that out of the fifty or so items I found in such a small area, all be 18th century except for those two rings.

    We call them 'Ring Things' we find them everywhere. Had 2 today. Some of ours go back the the Roman period, but most are Medieval / Post Medieval. They had turns of uses including horse harness rings & suspension loops on the persons belt etc... Some where thought to be the basis of a cloth button in the 18th C.

    Sometimes called 'Dorset buttons' - made from the early 17th C to mid 19th. Buttons made by weaving yarn or thread around a metal ring.
