Farmer’s son unearths medieval ring

A 17 year old has unearthed a medieval silver ring, dating back more than 800 years, on a farm in Northern Ireland.

The 12th century artefact was found by 17-year-old Conor Sandford as he was putting up a fence post at the edge of one of his father’s fields near the village of Kilmore, Co Armagh.

The teenager told a treasure trove hearing in Belfast today he initially thought the engraved finger ring was a ring pull from an old fizzy drink can.

“Only when I was putting the soil back into the hole did I notice this wee thing sticking out,” he said.”You know I thought it was a ring pull, off a Coca Cola can.”
