Abstract


The coins had been concealed in a wooden " brose-cap," or bowl. A total of 2067 coins were recovered including Scottish long cross pennies, pennies of Edward I and II, foreign sterling, a half penny of Edward I and a farthing of Edward I or II. One of the Alexander III pennies was very curious. It had been a plated piece, and was represented only by the thin skin of silver which had framed the reverse, and which survived virtually uninjured. The hoard was deposited around 1320 AD.
