Headbourne Worthy Bronze Age ring declared treasure


A Bronze Age gold ring found in a Hampshire field has been declared as treasure by a coroner.
The 3,000-year-old double ring was found by Winchester artist Alan Cracknell in February 2010 in a field at Headbourne Worthy.
He was using a metal detector and thought the artefact was an old bottle top when he first picked it up.
Following the ruling at Winchester Coroner's Court, ownership of the ring passes to the Crown.
