'Rare' gold ring found in Alresford declared treasure


ANOTHER “extremely rare” gold ring found near Winchester has been declared treasure.
The ring, originally from the Bronze Age, was found at Barton House Farm, Alresford, by metal detector enthusiast Ian Laws in November.
Mr Laws, from Surrey, had been at the farm with his detector club when he discovered the ring, which dates back to 1150-750BC.
It comes a few weeks after another Bronze Age gold ring was confirmed as treasure after being discovered near Winchester in 2010.
After the first ring was found, Winchester Museums Service finds liaison officer Rob Webley said it was “extremely rare” to find either gold items or objects from the Bronze Age.
