Searchable list of hoards and single coin finds c450-1180

Post by Oxgirl36 » Sat Feb 03, 2018 1:28 pm

Just found this great resource too. It tells you where hoards and single coins were found, in what type of container (if there was one) and with what other items. The search feature is superb. You can look at a specific area and get tonnes of extra info on when found, etc.

I’m sure some of you have already stumbled on this, but I haven’t. It’s great as Archi tells you where hoards have been found but then i’m often left frustrated researching more info, especially where they were found a long time ago.

Enjoy!

Oh yes please OooO Although little badges (like those for girl guides/ scouts) that you could pin to your signature would be great too. Maybe we could earn them? Or have them awarded at the end of each year in a prize giving? The most likes on the OPs post (that is, posts from in the research section) wins the (virtual) research trophy. Not that i’m competitive or anything ;)

Being serious I love the research side of our hobby. I worked as a consultant for a while providing information and advice on the clean technology market for companies considering investing in the UK. As a result I became really good at searching out obscure information from the web. To me it’s a challenge and fun but I recognise not everyone feels that way. In my view if we all share links to existing research we come across we all make it easier for each other ::g

Yes, if it fell under the definition of treasure trove. The whole history of treasure trove, back to Roman times, can be read here....
