Iceni Hoarde

Iceni Hoarde
Found at Field Baulk, March, Cambridgeshire (1982).
This hoard consists of 872 silver coins of the Iron Age Iceni tribe of East Anglia, and is the the largest single Icenian find yet known. The coins were contained in the globular pot, which was probably made sometime between AD 50 and 70. The hoard was hidden below ground, in a settlement, and the reason for its concealment may have been the troubled times of AD 60-61, when Queen Boudica led a tribal revolt against the newly-established Roman rulers.

In the British Museum.
