Note on discovery: all the small finds, except one coin, were found within a lead container (no. 198 below), at a depth of about 18 inches, while five of the larger, complete arm-rings were found underneath it. The objects are described in their uncleaned condition, in accordance with the terms of the Treasure Act 1996, and some of the details are currently obscured by adhering soil. After conservation, some of the weights may be slightly lighter, although there is unlikely to be any significant difference. Surface metal analysis of a sample of six objects from the hoard conducted …

The group consists of three silver Roman Republican coins of a denomination known as denarii (sing. denarius). The latest fully legible coin dates to many years before the establishment of Roman Britain. However, we know from larger coin hoard groups that Republican denarii, which had been produced over the previous two centuries, formed a substantial portion of the coin circulation throughout the first century AD. Thus these three coins cannot provide evidence on their own of Roman coins in Britain prior to the Roman annexation of AD 43. Metal Content and Age The coins satis…
