A total of 91 items were recorded of which 86 are early Medieval and, with three possible exceptions, probably relate to the hoard. The finds recorded consist of 38.85g of gold and 100.90g of silver, including the 79.13g cheek piece, 5004 . It must be recognised that these figures include both earth and garnets and will be reduced by cleaning and that the descriptions of the metal alloys are based only on visual examination, not analysis. The finds include a block of earth which appears to contain gold, 5091. The preliminary x radiographs suggest that this contains a single, folded, s…

Workflow stage: Published Find published
A small coin hoard of six coins, of Late Post Medieval dating (AD 1680s onwards). Five of the coins are from the issues of Charles II, four guineas, which will be of the 22 carat 'crown gold' standard and one shilling, which will be of the sterling standard, over 90% fine metal. These coins would have been in currency together in the later 17th or early 18th century and the absence of any coins of the later Stuarts or early Hanoverians makes it seem unlikely that it is a group from much later than around 1690. The most recent coin of this group is, a little oddly, the most worn …
