The hoard consists of 2 decorated gold neckrings, 2 thick oval-section gold bracelets, 1 faceted gold bracelet, 1 pottery bowl and 1 tiny bronze fragment.

This style of goldwork is part of a broad late bronze age tradition extending between Iberia and Britain/Ireland, and these objects may have been made locally.
