Half of a silver coin dating from the Early Medieval period. It is 20mm long, 10.6mm wide, and 1.15mm thick. It weighs 0.72gm. The coin has pairs of parallel lines at right angles to each other on the obverse, perhaps representing a building, and a cross and pellets on the reverse. With only half the coin to work from, it has not been possible to identify it yet, but it has been suggested that it is probably a Carolingian "Temple" type denier, or possibly an Anglo-Saxon or Anglo-Viking derivative. Similar examples, but probably with different legends can be seen at http://www.coinpeop…

CORONOR'S REPORT Description of find The coins, originally totaling at least five in number, had been stacked one on top of the other. At some time extreme heat has caused them to fuse together, this process rendering all details apart from one side of a fragmentary coin illegible. This one legible face is a small cross pattee type, presumably a reverse, of early tenth century date. The lettering is crude and this coin would seem to be a contemporary imitation from the Danelaw. A similar group of fused pennies was found at Aylsham in 2002. The legend reads [...]HRlDGAR[...]. Whils…
