RYEDALE Folk Museum is appealing for help to solve a 15-year-old mystery.
A pair of gold rings were discovered while volunteers and staff were moving the library to its new home in the museum grounds recently.
A hand-written note included with the rings read: “Found 18/5/97 in museum by back door in gravel.”
There is also an inscription on the inside of one of the rings.
Now the museum is turning to the public in order to solve the mystery which has intrigued all at the attraction in Hutton-le-Hole.
“We are really keen to re-unite the rings with their owner as they clearly represent something special,” said Emma McKenzie, of Ryedale Folk Museum.
“If you think they are yours then please get in touch with us at the museum and let us know what the inscription reads.”
