13th Century Ring Brooch

Contributed by BBC Coventry and Warwickshire

13th Century Ring Brooch

This ring brooch was found at Wolverton Warwickshire in 2008. It is silver gilt and only slightly damaged. It was found in the year the village were celebrating the 800th anniversary of the church and, as it was about 800 years old, it became an important item in our history display on our celebration weekend. It has recently been declared as treasure trove by the coroner's court and is in the hands of the British Museum.
