Great find indeed!

I too love the other artefacts mixed in with the coinage.
I'd be chuffed to bits with just the key!!!

I'd like to think it might have been a child burying their stuff, hope it's not the remains from the pocket and clothing of someone who came to a sticky end, but hope it is just the start of something more.

Great story and nice finds ::g

Quick update on the hoard. Went back to the site about a week later and found a small, lead, phallic pendant about 6 feet away. All items are safely with the flo and he has put a tentative date on them as 2nd century, probably Hadrian era.
Went back there today with him to do a small dig but had no luck finding anything else. All items are off to British museum next week. Cheers

Brilliant find mate,are you sure they are all bronze ;)
That was my first question. They look quite like encrusted denarii. I am also surprised to see the toggle amongst them.

Very well done. ::g

Thats a very interesting location and the finds are superb,i dont reckon its a purse loss or anything like that,but of course i could be wrong,but what is exciting is finding that key,of course it could be not related but when you have found these coins and the key and other items,then i still reckon it comes under more of a hoard related fine than a purse or casual loss.

Could well be alot deeper i think ::g

My initial thoughts too regarding the encrusted silver denarii.

Very well done.

Someone else wondered if they could be crusty silvers but far too big to be denarii. Pretty sure they're copper asses.
