An extremely rare 600 year old gold ring engraved with St George and the Dragon has been found by a metal detectorist in South Creake, Norfolk.
The ring was ruled to be treasure at an inquest in Norwich. It is set to be acquired by Norwich Castle museum. The place of the discovery, South Creake, is home to a large medieval church beloved by a former Poet Laureate, Sir John Betjeman.
It’s an uncanny coincidence for in The Earth Emperor’s Eye there are echoes of the legend of St George slaying a dragon, whilst famed poets of yesteryear provide the inspiration and heart for the magic within the tale. Is this a call to arms to protect the natural world?
