An amateur treasure hunter was left shaking with excitement after unearthing a 15th century bishop's ring in a farmer's field. Metal detectorist Adam Day, 30, was astonished to make the discovery and knew immediately it was something special. The 20-carat gold ring, engraved with St George, was found in a field near Beverley Minster in Yorkshire and is thought to have once belonged to a bishop and is worth around £10,000.
