Two medieval rings found in two different towns in Bucks by keen metal detectorists have been deemed to be treasure.

A silver finger ring – dating between the 15th and 16th century – was found in Haddenham by Mark Becher on October 3, 2015 and was sent to the British Museum in London for them to study.

Similarly, two months later on December 5, a silver-gilt finger ring was found in Chesham by metal detectorist Roger Paul.

The British Museum says the medieval ring found in Chesham has a design similar to those of the 15th century and could be dated somewhere between 1400 and 1550.

Both pieces have now been classed as treasure following two inquest hearings at Buckinghamshire Coroner’s Court in Beaconsfield on Wednesday morning.

It has not been confirmed what will happen to the ring found by Mr Paul, but the Bucks County Museum has expressed an interest in acquiring the piece found in Haddenham.
