Description

Robertson 2000, 252 no. 1049:

""That Iron was made in this Neighbourhood in the time of the Romans a late discovery has sufficiently convinced me. Upon removing a heap of Cinders to repair the High-Ways withal, a good Quantity of Copper Roman Coyns were discovered, some of which I have now in my possession. These were of Constantine, Constantius, Diocletian, and of the Usurper Carausius. This Country abounds with such heaps of Cinders, though we have not so much as any Tradition that ever Iron was made there."
-Dr. Richardson, of Bierley, in T. Hearne's edition of J. Leland, Itinerary (1714), I, 144
-The coins of Carausius were probably ant."
