A medieval seal thought to have once belonged to Stone Priory in north Staffordshire has gone on display A medieval seal thought to have once belonged to Stone Priory in north Staffordshire has gone on display. The copper object, which bears the image of the Virgin and Child, was found by a metal detector enthusiast in Cobham, Surrey, in September. It will be on show at St Michael and St Wulfad's church in Stone as part of its Christmas tree festival. Reverend Sally Smith, curate at St Michael's church, said: "It's important as it's a piece of our history". The inscription around the seal reads: "S'ecc Sce Marie et Sci W(v)lfadi Martiris de Stanis" which can be translated as "seal of the church of Saint Mary and Saint Wulfad, Martyr of Stone".
