Man Finds Ring Worth £10,000 Buried In Field

A metal detectorist dug up a rare gold ring and kept it in his garage for 40 years only to discover it was medieval treasure worth up to £10,000. Tom Clark, 81, first found the piece of jewellery in 1979 while searching a plot of farmland just outside his home town of Aylesbury, in Buckinghamshire.

Without realising its true value, he put the ring inside a metal tin and left it inside a garage, where it remained forgotten for decades.

It wasn’t until he began sorting through items from his mother’s house after her death that Mr Clark came across the seal ring again by chance.

He decided to get it valued and was shocked to discover it was a 670-year-old medieval artefact dating back to 1350.
