Number 29: West Yorkshire Ring Hoard

The hoard is made up of 7 items in total discovered over the course of two years from a West Yorkshire site and eventually acquired by Leeds Museum. The first discovery, in 2008, included three gold finger-rings of various design but dating from the 9th to 10th centuries, a fragment of cloisonné brooch and a gold ingot. Later, the finder discovered two more items likely to have belonged with the hoard, a large gold 10th Century filigree ring and a lead spindle whorl.
