Gold Lunula, Early Bronze Age, St Merryn, Cornwall

Gold Early Bronze Age lunula of provincial type, decorated with incised lines. It is identical to one found at Kerivoa and another from St Potan, Cotes-du-Nord, Brittany. All were made by the same craftsman using the same tools. Lunulae are neck ornaments made from a flat sheet of crescent shaped gold with oval or square shaped terminals. One of two lunulae found in a barrow at Harlyn Bay, St Merryn in 1864. They were discovered on the west side of the bay, near the cliff edge, by a labourer digging a pond on land owned by Mr Hellyar. Beaker Period, around 2300 BC - 2000 BC. TRURI : 1866.1.2
