Rare 16th Century "royal" silver vervel found

2 posts in this topic

A "rare" 16th Century "royal" silver vervel found in a Norfolk field has revealed the hunting habits of Charles Brandon, the first duke of Suffolk.

The 23mm (0.9in) ring, found in December, was worn by a bird of prey around its foot to identify its owner.

Adrian Marsden, finds officer based at Norwich Castle Museum, said: "It's rare we find them linked to royalty.

"Brandon married Henry VIII's sister and because it carries the duke's arms we can date it in his lifetime."

Pretty cool, especially the hearing or whatever to determine whether it's "treasure". On this side of the pond, it's pretty much finders keepers.
