Description:
The Hove amber cup was discovered in a great round barrow mound which was crudely excavated in 1852, in Hove, East Sussex, England. The barrow was of exceptional size and quality, after the fashion of mid-Bronze Age finds. The Hove amber cup is one of only two found in Britain; the other was in Dorset. However, the two are not of the same style of craftsmanship.

The Hove amber cup was found along with three other kingly objects (a Mycenaean-style bronze dagger, a whetstone, and a celt), all of which together suggest this was the burial of a king who had recently come to occupy a high status in Britain.

The cup is looked after by Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.
