- Curator's comments
- The components of the Conard hoard are all familiar from the Ewart Park phase of the Late Bronze Age datable to 1000 – 800 BC on the basis of associated radiocarbon dates.
Although subsequent agricultural damage makes it difficult to be certain, it seems likely that the hoard was deposited in a small, possibly natural, hole. The irregular shape of the feature and the scattered locations of the deeper objects might be consistent with a tree bole.
