Footnotes

  • This ring was found by a metal detectorist in Peatling Magna, Leicestershire on 3rd June 2016. Under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996 and due to its age and metal content of a minimum of 10% precious metal, the ring qualifies as Treasure and has been disclaimed by the Crown (treasure number: 2016T677; PAS Database number: LEIC-6B7C83). The design is comparable to rings in the Cheapside Hoard in the Museum of London. See Forsyth, Hazel, "The Cheapside Hoard: London's Lost Jewels", Museum of London, 2013.
