The Dover Saxon Ring, c.550AD. A magnificent and important Anglo Saxon Gold ring. Found in a Saxon rubbish layer near Market Street in 1972 by the CIB Archaeological Rescue Corps, during excavations for the York Street dual carriageway. The ring has a garnet stone set in a gold quatrefoil bezel and is decorated with gold wire and granulated gold. It is one of the best Saxon rings ever found in England and probably belonged to a senior member of the court of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Kent.
Anglo-Saxon ring, circa tenth century. The ring's center is extremely well made, consisting of fine quality gold wire with green and white enamel. The actual band of the ring is not of the same quality, indicating that it was perhaps made by two different individuals. It was found near Warwick and now belongs to the Warwickshire Museum.
