Coins from the Normanby Hoard

This hoard of 47,898 third century radiates (base silver or bronze antoniniani) is one of the largest ever found in Britain. It was discovered by a farmworker in December 1985 in the parish of Normanby, about twelve miles north of Lincoln. The coins were largely struck between AD 253 and 287. After cleaning and study by the British Museum, they were returned to the finder and landowner. Both the British Museum and Oxford's Ashmolean Museum purchased groups for their collections. The rest were offered for sale or dispersed through the trade.  The pot that originally contained the hoard was acquired by the Lincoln Museum.
