Gold Chain

Roman

English Heritage

Gold necklace or bracelet fragment. This extremely delicate chain has survived in such good condition because it is made of gold which does not corrode in the ground. Each link is a flat-sectioned bar, one end of which has a loop, the other end of which has been inserted into the loop of the next link, looped and then coiled around its own shank, so forming the chain. Whichever of Clayton’s workmen found this at Chesters he must have had an eagle eye to spot it.
