Three gold bracelets from the Woodham Walter Hoard

Woodham Walter Hoard (Colchester)

In 1991, two metal-detectorists discovered the hoard in a field at Woodham Walter. The hoard consists of three gold bracelets that would have been used as part of twisted torcs. These objects are currently on display in Colchester Castle.
