NAGS HEAD, N.C. -- A retired East Carolina University archaeologist has promised to give up a 16th-century gold signet ring from a dig in Buxton on North Carolina's Outer Banks.

If David Phelps doesn't produce the ring by the end of the month, the school will consider how to force its delivery, an official said.

Phelps, who has had the ring since 1998, had assured the school that he would bring the ring and other artifacts from his digs at the site of the Croatan chiefdom to the university in December."
