Coin Hoard in Broadland

A coin hoard was discovered on the 17th July 2003 by Roger Cole (Edmund Nuttall Foreman) whilst working on a flood defence scheme in the Haddiscoe area as part of the Broadland Flood Alleviation Project.

Roger discovered the coins by chance. After leaving his vehicle he put his foot down onto the remains of what is now understood to be the vessel that contained the coin hoard at the time of burial. A number of coins contained within the broken vessel were clearly visible. Roger then noticed that coins were adhering to the tracks of a nearby bulldozer which was probably responsible for the unearthing of the find following a period of heavy rainfall.

A subsequent search of the area by Roger Cole and his colleagues discovered that further coins had been spread along an area (approximately 100m long) that had been tracked over by the bulldozer.
