The Lunula 2009
The Lunula dates from the late Bronze age.
The decoration of the gold lunula consists mostly of lines, zigzags and triangles incised into the surface of the malleable material. The lunula were made of thin, hammered sheets of gold.
It was found by Hubert Lannon, Tully, in Caggle bog in March 1945. It was at a depth of ‘four or five steps’. It fact they found Hubert’s name inscribed on it. Hubert Lannon died in March this year.
Lunula inscribed by finder!
Hubert Lannon inscribed his name on the Lunula before giving it to Sheehan’s, chemists, in Strokestown for safe keeping.
