Gold book found in North Yorkshire
BNPS
A very tiny gold bible has been found by a couple using metal detectors.
NHS nurse Buffy Bailey, from Lancaster, found the book while searching farmland near York with her husband Ian.
It weighs just 0.2oz (5g) and and is thought to date back to the 15th Century.
The object is estimated to be more than 600 years old, and Buffy told the BBC it could be worth over £100,000.

Found out that one of the rings was her grandmother's ring. They were welded together at the bottom. I knew they were real when I pulled them out of the ground! 3-4 inches deep. Had to be 2-4 years to get that deep.
