10-Year-Old Finds Medieval Ring

Nathan Duffield, a 10-year-old student from Milford Haven, England, has discovered a 600-year-old ring with a metal detector. Nathan Duffield is a happy young man. Recently while using his metal detector, he unearthed a 600-year-old ring under four inches (ten centimeters) of soil. This was only the second time that the student had tried out his father's detector.

"It was only his second time -- he thinks they grow on trees now," said Mr. Duffield.

The ring is thought to be of Italian origin and has a 10% gold content. The Duffields hope that the treasure will remain on display in their county.
