Items found in Norfolk declared treasure trove at King’s Lynn inquest

A 1,700-year-old gold ring and a 15th century silver badge were among five items declared treasure at an inquest held in King’s Lynn.

The piece of Roman jewellery was discovered by metal detector enthusiast Dr Stephen Hammond in Sedgeford in November last year.

The incomplete Medieval silver pilgrim badge and a 400-year-old gold mourning ring were both found by Michael Carlile in Outwell last year.
Also designated treasure were a 15th century silver mount found by Malcolm Parker in Oxborough in November and a 16th century silver gilt dress hook discovered by Marcus Virgo in Bawsey in January.
Norfolk coroner William Armstrong declared the items treasure at King’s Lynn County Court on Monday after hearing how they had been authenticated by experts at the British Museum.
