Find out more on Buxton Museum’s Blog: Reynard’s Kitchen Cave hoard – Late Iron Age and Roman coins.

The hoard consists of 26 coins, mostly Late Iron Age but including three Roman coins which pre-date the invasion of Britain in AD 43. It is believed to be the first time coins of these two origins are thought to have been found buried together in a cave in Britain. It is also unusual to find Late Iron Age gold coins. A Roman brooch was found alongside.
