Welcome to The Druidstone Ring –
the finest example of all known medieval signet ring seals which
is available to remain in private hands.
The Druidstone Ring was located in March, 2017 on a farm near Castleton, a small village between Cardiff and Newport, by Mark Hackman, a well-known local metal detectorist. (You can see more of Mark’s amazing finds on his YouTube channel – welshrelics.)
Since its discovery The Druidstone Ring has been assessed by the National Museum of Wales; their reports are included on these pages.
Having been created from copper alloy rather than gold, The Druidstone Ring fortunately escapes the draconian ramifications of being formally declared as ‘treasure’. Because of this The Druidstone Ring is, beyond doubt, the finest example of all known medieval signet ring seals which is available to remain in private hands.
