A remarkable bangle formed from one thick rod of bronze and incised with linear decoration. A rich patination has formed over the material, and further decoration has been added with the inclusion of a gold coiled ring, attached to the bangle. It is thought this gold addition may have been a hair ring.
Bronze Age bracelets were worn constantly on the wrists and around the arms of both men and women. They were used as a status symbol as well as to identify the wearer.
Date: Circa 14th – 9th century BC
