De Jersey (2015) notes: "One hundred and sixty staters were found within a "restricted area" of a single field, near a fording point across the River Brit (BMHF; TAR 2003, 151 no. 352 (2003 T242)). The coins are nominally described as base silver, although some might more accurately be described as bronze. Many are in poor condition, and coupled with the relatively poor record photographs, it is likely that there may be more variation within the group that is first apparent. There are for example certainly some coins with the "two-branched" representation of the hair on the obverse (cf…

De Jersey (2015) writes: "A scattered hoard of Durotrigan coinage, mostly rather poorly recorded, recovered over several years. Haselgrove (1989, 49) noted that "There may be additional coins from here", and three possible candidates in the CCI are listed below. The alloy of some of the Durotrigan material is uncertain and thus the division into silver and bronze staters should be treated with some caution."

De Jersey (2015) writes: "Initial publication (Haselgrove 1984, 136) recorded several silver and bronze coins found near Dorchester in 1982. In fact the coins had been handed in to the Russell-Cotes Museum, Bournemouth, in October 1980, and were said to have been found at a depth of c.75 cm "buried beneath a flat stone" (BMHF). There are persistent suggestions in the published and unpublished reports of the find that a) it was much larger than the declared portion, and b) it was found somewhere other than the given location. A large quantity of Roman bronze - up to 200 coins, mostly of…

De Jersey (2015) records: "Several poorly-recorded finds made over a period of fourteen years or more. The earliest discoveries seem to be those reported by Keen (1987, 124), made by Mr and Mrs House in October 1986: five silver staters, one silver quarter stater and eleven struck bronze staters, all of the Durotriges. They were found within an area of approximately 50 m2, apparently with two small silver ingots. In March 1987 another silver stater was found in the same area. Keen (ibid.) records a further four staters found "in the vicinity", in November 1987, by Mr B. Dillon; the eig…

De Jersey (2015) writes: ""The commons in the tithing of Gussage and Minchington were inclosed about 50 years ago. On the down, formerly common, are numerous Celtic barrows About 1838 a hoard of British silver coins of a type frequently found in Dorset were discovered by some men digging near this spot. They were not in any vessel, but merely lay together in the ground, and by their side was the blade of an iron sword. These coins, with one or two exceptions, passed into the hands of General Gordon, a near resident at the time, who presented them to the British Museum." Hutchins 1868, …

De Jersey (2015) writes: One hundred and forty-two coins were recovered from an area of approximately two square metres during a metal detecting rally in early September 2004. Two other coins were found "a few yards" away (TAR 2004, 169 no. 418; BMHF 2004 T347). The 144 coins thus declared included two Roman bronzes of the third century AD which were regarded as unassociated with the hoard. In addition to the coins, two copper alloy fragments, an iron object, three flints and 23 pottery sherds were reported. The pottery included three handmade Iron Age sherds, black burnished ware and…

They were scarce broader than a sixpence, but much thicker, flat on one side, and convex on the other, weighed 83 grains, and were valued at 11d. each, and resembled one in Dr. Borlase's History of Cornwall, p. 242, Plate xix.

Van Arsdell (1989b) examined about 180 coins in the mid-1980s, which he took to represent about one quarter of the hoard, and on that basis estimated that it had originally contained c.850 coins, predominantly Durotrigan silver and a small amount of gold.

They were scattered over an area of approximately 100 m x 50 m, at a depth of between 5-8 cm, on the west side of the Tarrant Valley, about 20 m above the valley floor.
