Roman gold ring found in UK after 1,600 years

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A "prized" Roman gold ring was found in a farmer's field more than 1,600 years after it was lost.

The piece of jewellery, which is inset with an amethyst, was found in Broxted, near Saffron Walden in Essex, in November 2017.

Sophie Flynn, finds liaison officer for the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) at Colchester Museum, said it would have been a "prized possession".

The ring was declared treasure at an inquest at Essex Coroner's Court.

Great find, i saw an absolutely beautiful ring dated around 1200 yesterday on a metal detecting site, the museum gave it back to the finder, maybe they didn't have the money to buy it or had one in their collection.
