Description

Inspired by a Bronze Age gold pendant in our collection. Gold-plated hallmarked silver on a gold plated chain, Made exclusively for Wiltshire Museum.
The pendant was won by a lady who was buried close to Stonehenge. It is in the shape of cattle horns and shows how important the lady was, as wealth may have been measured by how many cattle people owned. Other objects buried with her, including amber from the Baltic, hint that she may have grown up on the continent, and travelled here to marry into a local dynasty.
Wilsford G8, about 1,800 BC
