List of Roman hoards in Britain

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The list of Roman hoards in Britain comprises significant archaeological hoards of coins, jewellery, precious and scrap metal objects and other valuable items discovered in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) that are associated with period of Romano-British culture when Britain was under the control of the Roman Empire, from AD 43 until about 410, as well as the subsequent Sub-Roman period up to the establishment of Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. It includes both hoards that were buried with the intention of retrieval at a later date (personal hoards, founder's hoards, merchant's hoards, and hoards of loot), and also hoards of votive offerings which were not intended to be recovered at a later date, but excludes grave goods and single items found in isolation.

Most Roman hoards are composed largely or entirely of coins, and are relatively common in Britain, with over 1,200 known examples.[1] A smaller number of hoards, such as the Mildenhall Treasure and the Hoxne Hoard, include items of silver or gold tableware such as dishes, bowls, jugs and spoons, or items of silver or gold jewellery.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The hoard was reported by a widow whose husband had been a digger driver working on the motorway. The exact location and date of the find was not known.
  2. ^ There was also a Bronze Age gold ornament found at the same time, but it is not considered to be part of this hoard.[88]
  3. ^ The Roman coins in the Westhall Hoard indicate a burial later than 138 AD, but the terrets date to the Iron Age, circa 1–70 AD, probably before the Roman Conquest.
