The hoard consists of 840 gold coins dating from between 20 BC-AD 20. The hoard is rare for the time period and unique for this type of discovery as it contains only gold coinage. It is tangible evidence of the long history of the peoples of the British Isles and offers a direct connection to the Iceni tribe which remains strongly linked to the story of Boudica, one of Britain’s most famous folk heroines.
It is difficult to realize that all of the coins in this hoard of coins are gold staters of the early Celts who lived in England. By 50 A.D. These people were assimilated and influenced by the Roman occupation of England.
