Objects found by metal detectorists in Norfolk declared treasure trove

Gold and silver objects found by metal detectorists in Norfolk that date back more than one thousand years were among the items declared treasure trove at inquests yesterday.

Among the items was a post medieval gold finger ring that would have been worn by an elegant lady during Tudor times about 450 years ago.

The item was found on land in Banningham, near North Walsham, on December 4 last year by Damon Pye, who attended the inquest.

Mr Pye said he was still excited by the find seven months on, and added that a similar example was housed at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Norfolk coroner William Armstrong added that it was “certainly, an attractive item” and congratulated Mr Pye on his discovery.
