A hoard of 134 copper alloy Roman nummi, mostly 4th century. What follows is an extract of the report written by Dr. Eleanor Ghey of the Department of Coins & Medals, British Museum. The coins are a mixed group but the majority (66 identifiable coins) are Valentinianic nummi and some later nummi dating up to AD 402. The group also included a worn sestertius of Antonine date, two radiates of Claudius II and a number of earlier nummi. The majority of coins were worn but the composition and spatial proximity of the group probably reflects that of a scattered late Roman hoard. Sum…

A hoard of debased long-cross pennies/coins, possibly of Edward I (AD 1272-1307). Treasure case No. 2009 T756. Total weight: 1066gms. The coins are mostly consolidated; they were originally in a small vessel (recently broken) and have taken on the shape of this vessel in their consolidation. The coins all appear to have suffered some corrosion as they are mostly white in colour. Some coins display a green copper staining showing that some of the silver is debased. From the consolidated mass it is hard to estimate the quantity of coins but there may be c.200-300.

Treasure Case 2015 T900. A collection of c. 19 objects, consisting of c.85 fragments thereof, of a Middle Bronze Age 'Ornament Horizon' hoard (c. 1400-1200 BC). The items were buried in an undecorated bucket urn laid on its side, probably in a small pit, however severe truncation by the plough had destroyed all but the very base of the context and under half of the vessel. Many of the artefacts were found within 10-15m of the hoard deposit, and were intially recovered by metal detecting. Once a suspected concentration was identifed the local FLO was informed and a controlled excavatio…

TREASURE CASE 2015 T73. A lump of fused silver medieval pennies. The collection conisits of an uncertain number of pennies, possibly originally in a tube of sorts as the coins are stacked one upon the other. The lower section has been heated to a high temperature, causing the silver pennies to melt into an unrecognisable silver lump. There are three or four pennies near the top that although fused still resemble long cross and possibly short cross pennies, however they are all but unidentifiable. These may have been melted deliberately contemporarily, as the practice of modern stubble…

Five fragments of copper alloy objects, all of Middle Bronze Age (Ornament Horizon) date, c. 1400-1200 BC. These fragments are remnants of a hoard reported and concluded at 2015 T900. These five objects comprise a fragment of a torc and four other unidentifiable fragments. These objects have been reported as a separate case as the main hoard had already been declared treasure at the time of discovery of these new items. These items have been dispersed by ploughing as had several other objects and fragments of the original hoard, however there is now doubt that they were originally par…

3 fragments of gold bar, flattened by hammering. Lengths 29, 25 and 9mm. 1 fragment of gold chopped from a thin round-sectioned bar, distorted to an 'S' shape, length 29mm. 1 very pitted and eroded gold fragment, length 15mm. 1 fragment of round-sectioned, tapering brass bar, length 30mm. Conclusion: The gold fragments could be ancient but diagnostic features are insufficient to attribute to any chronological or cultural context. Due to the undiagnostic nature of the objects they cannot be securely dated to pre-1713 and as such fall outside the provisions of the Treasure A…

Twenty-five records on this database relate to a Late Bronze Age hoard. All the objects are broken and some have the appearance of being deliberately cut. The function of the hoard may be related to metalworking activity. The dating of the hoard to the end of the Late Bronze Age is on the basis of diagnostic elements such as the sword chape.

Hoard of fifty-one cast copper alloy fragments of Late Bronze Age date including the centre of a winged axe, an incomplete socketed axe with a flanged blade, missing its rectangular collar and part of its side loop, and decorated on the upper half of both faces with two converging ribs that appear like a narrow shield motif. This narrow shield shape is similar to that engraved in the stone mould (no.5) from Tremough, Cornwall, illustrated in Jones, Gossip & Quinnell, 2015, on page 95, fig.5.13, which is thought to have produced a slender socketed axe, but with a shield pattern more…
