Dad finds valuable 17th century ring during metal hunt
A medieval ring discovered by a metal detecting dad could be worth thousands of pounds.
Shaun Terriss, 46, struck gold when he unearthed the ring inches below pasture land on a metal hunt with a friend.
A treasure inquest heard he regularly searched the grounds at Kenfield Hall in Petham with permission from the landowner and also belonged to a metal detecting club.
Experts from the British Museum estimate the ring is from the 17th century, but were unable to say who it belonged to.
