Unearthing Cornwall’s Ancient Heritage

Monday, January 15, 2018

Discoveries of Roman coin hoards in various parts of Cornwall over recent years are hinting at the county’s rich and varied trading and ritual history, according to a new report in the Cornish Guardian.

It may also indicate a greater level of involvement in the region by the Roman Empire than had been previously thought.

A find of approximately 2000 coins at Hayle on the North Cornish coast has been shown to date from the 3rd century A.D. A further discovery in central Cornwall dating from the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius in the 2nd century and one near Penzance from the Early Roman Empire indicate trading links both with the rest of Britain as well as the continent.

According to the Cornish Guardian, Anna Tyacke of the Royal Cornwall Museum has suggested that the coin hoards may have been left as part of a ritual offering.
