Full Description

A number of Roman coins were found by stone-getters in a cairn in Haddon fields in or before 1824. Excavations in 1824 revealed a further 70-80 coins some 3 meters from the centre of the mound. The coins were identified as indicating secondary interment in the barrow. (1, 2) The deposit of coins appears to be a hoard of fourth-century copper and not, as Bateman says, a secondary interment. (3) The coins ranged in date from 306-383. (4)
