 Description

Medieval bronze archers ring. A thumb ring with an angled triangular extension with intricate chevron patterns and foliage designs to conforming D-shape shank. Tested bronze, approximate weight 6.64g, circa 8th - 12th century AD.

Ancient archers wore these rings on their bow-thumb, to protect it when drawing the bowstring. The bow was drawn by hooking the thumb around the string just under the arrow, and bracing it against the first finger. The ring would protect the thumb and the bowstring would zip right across it upon release.
