This gold sun disc is from Jug’s grave, Monkton Farleigh near Bath, dated to 2400 BC not long after the first sarsen stones were erected at Stonehenge.
I have added a new gallery to my homepage of images from the fantastic Wiltshire museum, Devizes. If you are ever down that way it is strongly recommended as a small museum with wonderfully presented archaeological finds of global significance.
