Items from an Iron Age crouched inhumation: A copper alloy vessel with handle, a pottery vessel, two copper alloy brooches and an iron implement Grave assemblage: 1] A copper alloy vessel with ornate handle. In excavation the vessel was observed to comprise two layers of horizontally ridged copper alloy sheet. Adjacent to it was the probably handle in two pieces. The handle consists of a rectangular copper alloy bar, which constricts into right-angled ends which then expand into right-angled, squared escutcheons. The handle is decorated with longitudinal grooves on the main b…

"Several coins of the House of Theodosius" found in the fills of oven 4 in Building 1 in the Somerleigh Court excavations of 1969-1970. This assemblage (of unknown number) has been treated separately from hoard IARCH-D61D2D ((Robertson 2000, 410 no. 1644) coins from the rubble layer of the same building) although in the publication of that hoard by Cooke (2007, 7) he has treated them as one hoard: "However, using the published coin list (Patrick Greene 1993, 93), it is possible to suggest the likely composition of this hoard. In order to do this, only coins recovered from rubble contex…

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…

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…

296 AE radiates to AD 286. The coins were 1.5ft below the plough soil with no visible signs of a container. A circular, corroded stud with a narrow band and possible inscription was also discovered with the hoard. This is believed to be Medieval or post-Medieval and, as such, is not considered part of the hoard. A farthing (Seaby, 3992) was also found with the coins during conservation. Addenda of 618 coins found in 2104 added here. Treasure numbers associated with this hoard: 2013 T221; 2014 T962 Other PAS records associated with this hoard: DOR-D49090
