Detectorist found 17th Century hawking ring

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A 17th Century silver hawking ring found by a metal detectorist in a field has been linked to a Suffolk baronet, researchers have found.

The vervel, which dates back to the 1600s, is believed to have belonged to Thomas Playters, the first Baronet of Sotterley, near Beccles in Suffolk.

It was dug up in a field in Wix, near Harwich in Essex, last year.

The ring, which is engraved with its owner's name, would have attached a hunting bird to its perch using a line.
