In March 2018, a beautiful silver Roman ring showing two cobra heads was discovered in Upper Winchendon (central England). The object is dated to the middle of the 2nd century CE. Currently, the object is deformed, because originally the heads were in contact with each other.
Snakes were highly valued animals when it came to jewelry. Their images made jewelry amulets that had healing powers.
The British Museum has expressed the desire to buy the object. These types of finds are extremely rare in Britain. The valuation of the artifact is currently in progress.
