It does not usually happen that people during their morning or evening walk stumble upon something that turns out to be something very rare and fascinating but when it happens, it excites them from deep in their hearts and they rush to tell others about their discovery.

One such occurrence took place with a minor child in England who unknowingly discovered a rare bracelet from the Roman while walking the 12-year-old with his dog in the Pagham.

The minor was with his 44-year-old mother when his eye caught the glance of the bracelet that is estimated to date back 2,000 years, according to the New York Post.

His mother while speaking to the media told SWNS agency: "Rowan has always been into finding all sorts of bits and pieces, he’s very adventurous and is always picking stuff up off the floor."

The resident of Bognor, Sussex, verified the bracelet and searched if it was real.

Fortunately, it met all the requirements for being Roman.

The child also showed it to his hairdresser who later took the photo of the golden bracelet.

“The Finds Liaison Officer was very interested in the gold, so we had to go up to Horsham to drop it off because it’s then property of the Crown while it’s going through all of these different processes,” the boy’s mother Amanda remarked.

She revealed that the finding is a first-century Roman bracelet of armilla type.

“An armilla bracelet — our understanding is — was given to the Roman soldiers as a mark of respect and valor and service,” she said.

“It’s a portion, it’s not a full circular bangle. What makes it treasure is that it is over 300 years and a precious metal.”
