"The Knaresborough Area Hoard"

CLICK ON THUMBNAILS TO ENLARGE

The 'Knaresborough Area hoard' was deposited circa 1135 and consisted of 178 silver coins, all Henry I BMC type XV. The hoard was discovered by a group of metal detectorists between April 20th, 2008 and April 15th, 2009. The reason for the hoards concealment and perhaps more interestingly its non-recovery is not known.

The hoard was was handed over to the appropriate authorities and studied by The British Museum before being returned to the landowner and finders in May 2011. All the coins below are of good silver, uncleaned, with a mixture of bright silver and toned surfaces, some still having light traces of dirt on the surface.

Knaresborough, known as Chenaresburg in the Domesday Survey, is a market town situated 17 miles north west of York along side the river Nidd.
