The Dover Saxon Ring, c.550AD. A magnificent and important Anglo Saxon Gold ring. Found in a Saxon rubbish layer near Market Street in 1972 by the CIB Archaeological Rescue Corps, during excavations for the York Street dual carriageway. The ring has a garnet stone set in a gold quatrefoil bezel and is decorated with gold wire and granulated gold. It is one of the best Saxon rings ever found in England and probably belonged to a senior member of the court of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Kent.
