- Curator's comments
- The two pairs of discs (1895 0723 a - b and 1895 0723 c - d) were found at Lake, Wiltshire, in a grave. The burial appears to have been an inhumation and in addition to the four discs it contained an incense cup, bone and stone beads, parts of a spacer plate amber neck lace, amber pendants, an awl, a flat riveted knife dagger and faience beads.
