The highlight of this spectacular 79-object hoard is a group of five rare ‘Sussex loop’ bracelets – the most ever found in a single location – and the large ceramic vessel in which the materials were deposited, which unusually survives intact.


Found by metal detectorist Mr D Lange in March 2011 in the parish of Tarring Neville, East Sussex.
