Bracelet

Description
This is part of a hoard of broken bronze axes and bracelets found by a group of metal-detectorists in 1999. The group had been buried in a small pit which had been disturbed by modern ploughing. Whether they were buried as an offering or by a metalworker who intended to return to them we do not know.
