A gold ring that belonged to a King's courtier who was wrongly executed for treason has been unearthed by a metal detectorist 350 years on.
The band, belonging to Edward Colman, was found six inches under ground by treasure hunter Michelle Vall while on holiday near to Loch Lomond in Scotland.
Colman, who worked for Charles II, was hung, drawn and quartered in 1678 after he was implemented in a fictitious plot to assassinate the King.
The signet ring bears the grand-looking coat of arms of the Colman family. It is said to be worth £10,000 and has been declared treasure by the authorities.
