Can remember one been found at Ripon on a dig a few years ago, I was the second person to handle it after all those years in the ground.

One is certainly on my wish list the one above looks plated most ive seen are solid gold, makes more sence to me worn on the ears or the nose rarther than ring money but i guess we will never know.

I think I know where it was, Thornborough?
I’ve got a permission near there that I’ve yet to try. It’s owned by an Estate that has land all over the place and as yet I’ve never detected the block they have there.

Yep it was Bob, went on a couple of digs there. Some interesting bits came up, but not prolific
