I recently watched a show where antiques were appraised on an American PBS channel. The show was from England, and there was a segment about people with metal detectors finding jewelry from as long as 1,000+ years ago.

There was one ring from the time of the Anglo Saxon arrival, found in a man's yard. I was surprised at the low appraisal. My thought was that I'd like to have that ring, just to imagine the history behind it.
