I get so excited when finds like this surface. There are so many things the earth has yet to reveal about those who came before us~

Stunning find!

Wonderful find. And the UK has treasure trove laws, unlike the US, so wonderful finds like this get shared with the world instead of being sold on the black market.

Beautiful find, it surprises me that so many archeologists are still dead set against working with metal detectorists. So many finds have been brought to the surface by people using metal detectors, finds that would otherwise still be buried.

So true. Purists in any profession are slow to accept change or new technology.

I collect intaglio and intarsia. This is fantastic and the condition is stunning.

I was stunned at the condition also....200-300 AD and it looks like it just came off the jewelers bench!

@CelticFire The side enamel is still perfect! Amazing.
