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.

The Statue of Liberty is shown as it arrives in New York. France’s gift to America
crossed the Atlantic dismantled in crates aboard the French steamer Isère (center), which nearly sank in a storm during the voyage. Two hundred thousand people
lined the docks and hundreds of boats put to sea to welcome the Isère. It took a
year to completely assemble the statue on Bedloe’s Island, now called Liberty
Island.
