Coin Hoards from Roman Britain
« on: August 20, 2016, 10:37:02 PM »
“Coin hoards from Roman Britain” is a series of 13 volumes. I have volumes 7- 13, and I thought it would be worthwhile to list the volumes that LRB people might find interesting. I did not list anything about volumes 4 and 6 because I have heard that there are not any LRB hoards in them. I did not list every hoard in each volume as some have numerous hoards, for example vol 12 has 55 hoards.


CHRB 1. Chorleywood hoard 4,358 coins  mid-4th  330-348    Hamble hoard  2,494 A.D. 330- 335

CHRB 2. Bicester hoard   440 coins   A.D. 317- 348

CHRB 3. Blackmoor Hoard   29, 773 coins  circa A.D. 293

CHRB 4. ---

CHRB 5. Has some LRB hoards, but I don’t know which ones.

CHRB 6. ---

CHRB 7. several LRB hoards, mostly Constantinian. 18 hoards in total, the largest is the Cae Bardd of 4716 plus 271 coins ending A.D. 328

CHRB 8. 18 hoards, the main one and focus of the book is “The Normanby Hoard of Roman 3rd Century Antoninianii” 47,898 third century radiates A.D. 253- 284

CHRB 9. Chalfont Hoard  6,628 coins, mostly debased ants from the later 3rd century.

CHRB 10. 60 hoards, at least 20 of interest to LRB enthusiasts.  Chapmanslade had 5,200 to A.D. 337

CHRB 11. early Imperial period through AD 235

CHRB 12. 55 hoards, maybe half would be of interest to LRB collectors…most famous are Langtoft II of 923 coins ending in the 320’s and the Grassmoor Hoard of 1422 coins ending in A.D. 340

CHRB 13. Gloucester Hoard  over 15,000 coins A.D. 270- 293. Includes two smaller hoards of Carausius and Allectus.
