Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A gold and crystal mourning ring thought to have connections to the Lord of Man during the English Civil War has been unearthed by a metal detectorist on the Isle of Man.

The "delicate" 350-year-old piece was discovered in a field in the south of the island by Lee Morgan in late December.

It was revealed in an inquest where it was officially declared treasure.

The ring will now go on display in the medieval gallery at the Manx Museum.

Manx National Heritage curator Allison Fox said the piece, which is adorned with the letters JD or ID, would have been made for "an individual of high status".
