Full description

Named Money Hill, a name elsewhere given to findspots of Roman coins or jewellery or to barrows.

30 November 1978. Visit.
Field whose name was marked on the Ordnance Survey is in fact perfectly flat, and no higher than surrounding fields. Does this suggest a removed barrow?
E. Rose (NAU).

The name first appears on a map of 1780, in Money Hill Lane, though field itself is not named.
E. Rose (NAU).

Before 1900. Two brooch fragments (one ?dolphin) and five Roman coins (see form in file) (Carausius, Claudius II, unidentified)
