An amateur treasure hunter used a metal detector to unearth a 1,800-year-old gold Roman signet ring in Somerset.
Pest control officer Jason Massey, 45, discovered the rare piece of jewellery, which features an engraving of the Roman goddess of Victory, in a field near Crewkerne.
It is believed to have belonged to a 'high status' figure, potentially making it one of the most significant archaeological finds in Somerset's history.
The current value of the ancient piece of jewellery is still being determined.
