RING BACK IN FRANCE AFTER 600 YEARS

(NEWSER) – A ring said to have belonged to Joan of Arc is back in the medieval peasant-turned-warrior’s native France nearly 600 years after she was burned
at the stake. The ring, which had been in England since the 15th century, sold
at auction for more than $400,000 (about 30 times its estimated worth). It was 
purchased by the du Fou foundation, which runs a historical theme park in
western France. The BBC reported the ring arrived home on Friday.
